Summer Hang Out

     This is such a perfect image of summer fun and just "hanging out."  I can't tell you how much this reminds me of my childhood (ancient days though they were!) and of me, being a typical tomboy.  It's an image from Sassy Cheryl's and I just found out that they are closing their challenge.  This is the last one.  :-(


     Colored with ProMarkers, die cut with a Spellbinders' die and matted with another die cut one size larger.  Ribbon from really Reasonable Ribbon and the bow is one of those I make by the dozens.  However, in this case, I 'dyed' it with a ProMarker because I didn't have any the color I wanted.  I rarely use orange but am trying to expand my horizons.  :-D

     That smile on her face reminds me of the song, "Don't Worry, Be Happy!"

     Yesterday was a long day and a short night so this post is appropriately short, too.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
