Summer Card

I thought this was a really fun summer card....light on the summer part though.  Here in MI, the weather is gorgeous. Just not steamy hot.  (Wait until August!)




We've spent some time at the (heated) pool though.  #1 son is improving on his swimming skills as he is signed up to take the Swimming Merit Badge at Summer Camp.  Needless to say, I might be adding "swimming teacher" to my motherhood resume soon. I have already encouraged #3 to swim the length of the pool by the end of the summer.  Reward?  Lego set...Of course!

This week's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge is to "Make is sparkle."  I used Twinking H2Os for the flower and butterfly. (So in real life, shimmer!)  Also, I've added rhinestones!

Challenges:  Speedy's Friends #61, Colorthrowdown 148, flutterby#160,
