The Dog Days of Summer

Doesn’t this sweet image bring back memories of the soft gentler times of lazy hot dog days of summer afternoons? Walking barefoot in the cool grass, wading in a lake or stream, picking wildflowers along the way, carrying a bucket for whatever treasures you find along the way… and I don’t know about you, but having a duck accompany me would just be the best!!! I love this image and I’m sure I’ll use it again and again – so many possibilities.

Paper Cupcakes Sunday Afternoon (482x640)

My card was made for the Magical Monday Challenge at Paper Cupcakes  going on right now! Use any Paper Cupcakes image either newly purchased, one you have on hand, or one of the great freebies Nina has for you and create a project to fit your interpretation of the theme “The Dog Days of Summer” and have fun creating and reminiscing. And, there will be a prize too!

Take Care, Dru

Dru, what a gorgeous card. Love the soft yellows (one of my fav colors to use) and the dp with this is perfect. I have this image but haven't made anything yet. You really rocked on this weeks challenge. Looking forward to working with you.

Dru, welcome to the Paper Cupcakes team! Your card is so pretty and elegant! I just love the color skeme and the softness about this. This card just feels like "serenity" and your write up is just lovely as well. I would love to have days like this again. I sometimes think this generation of children have missed out on this! Just beautiful!

Oh Dru this is so georgous and you are so right. It does remind me of the lazy days of summer when I was a young girl. We grew up beside a river and I would find all sorts of treasures to bring home. Thank you for sharing such a lovely card. I'm excited to be designing with you.

I have to fuss at my kids about chasing ducks at the lake almost every time we go! LOL The ducks there don't look as sweet as the one in your image. Your card is so lovely!

Hi Dru. Beautiful and peaceful card. It's just perfect for making someone feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Sounds like you live in a wonderful environment with Mother Nature sitting by your side. Enjoy my friend because you have the best part of living within God's beauty. "Hugs" Carol
