Goodbye July

It is hard to believe that July is almost over! The summers seem to whoosh! by!! We are having such a beautiful summer here in the Black Hills.  I hope you are having fun in your spot in the world too : ) 



I wanted to pop in with a July birthday card I created and while I'm here let me remind you that there is still time to join Serendipity Stamps monthly challenge "Just Add Water".

Such a sweet card, Patti!! LOVE the striped border, and your gentle watercolored splatters. The image is so perfect for a July birthday, or would make a fantastic Fourth of July party invitation. Your watercolors so gently blend together; they look fantastic. What a wonderful card!! Bev

A beautiful card, bright colors, but done softly. So patriotic and so summery! Great design.

Delightful card, Patti! Very iconic. Indeed, we'll soon be in back to school mode here. School starts in a few short weeks. Wahhhhhh!

Such a fresh, summer card, love the stripes on the sides!

Well if this doesn't shout summertime, I don't know what does! I love the artsy smudging of the colors here. Very pretty design!

Oh how pretty. Really like the watercolor wash on the stamped image (which is really cool!) and the pretty way you matted this. Amazing design.

A wonderful design depicting July. I love the soft colors too. And, yes, the summer is flying by fast!

Mary Dew Lee said...

What a fun card! You are so clever - you followed the Serendipity Stamps "Just Add Water" theme two ways - with your "Water"melon and your water color! A great quick card!

Marybeth said...

Love the way you colored this beautiful Serendipity Stamps ,stamp! Another amazingly beautiful card!

Jen Mitchell said...

I couldn't agree with you more about how July managed to whoosh by so fast! Hard to believe, for sure! I love this patriotic card with the flag and fireworks. And I love that the quintessential summertime watermelon is part of the design too!

Fab card Patti, that's a great image you used!
Glad to hear you're having a lovely summer, send some of it our way! We had 2 nice sunny hot days a few weeks ago, and it's rained ever since ;) I guess that's why Ireland is so green!
