Is it July already? and is the first week of it already gone? It is....and I have been absent from here, but very busy with my family. So today, I was browsing some blogs and decided I needed to create and I was going to need some inspiration. I found it in 2 places: I used a card sketch and a color challenge. First I went to ColourQ and loved the color combo....

Immediately I thought of summer and the adorable SU stamp set that was one of my first purchases, but I have not used in a couple of years! Next I was at Jodi Collins' blog Stamping a Latte and saw this MFT sketch challenge and decided that this was it!

So this is what I came up with:

What do you think? I love it, makes me feel like splashing in the pool.
I also remembered these cute little fish brads I had bought at Michaels a long time ago because I loved them and had never used them. I figured pools and kids = fish, right? My kids are certainly turning into little fish this summer!

Well, I am glad I had time to create and share today...I hope you enjoyed the card and are having a great summer!
Thanks for stopping by,
Melanie :)
