Dog Days of Summer
Happy Magical Monday!
It's time for a new challenge at There's Magic in the Air and free goodies. Our theme this week is Dog Days of Summer and whatever that means to you. With the heat wave that we have been having I certainly can relate to this phrase. All I would want to do if I had to be out in the heat would be to laze around and sleep just like the dogs that I had as a child used to love to do. When I was a child my Dad owned a wooden boat that we would take out on the New River here in southwest Virginia and just float and try to cool off when the heat was too much. It is a special memory and when I heard what the challenge was I thought of Nina's image "Beached Boat". I made an easel card and after coloring my boat, I cut it out with my long scalloped rectangle Nesties and attached to the front which I had sponged to make a sky and background scene. The cattails are from another set that I own, but I thought they made the perfect touch to the scene. I hope that you will find time to check out our site and try the challenge. Below is a picture of the goodies that Nina is giving away this week.
This is the inside of my card.
Hope this is a great start to your week. Please leave me a comment if you have time and stop by TMITA and play with us at Paper Cupcakes.
