Hi, guys! I'm back again for a minute with another card entry for Sheila's "Love-Love-Love Summer" giveaway.

But first, as I'm here, let me remind you that as of 8 p.m. (CT) tonight, the last entry will be accepted for Showcase #7.  Therefore, please hurry to get your projects completed and registered with Mr. Linky.  The fairies and I are waiting for you and can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

Now, I'd like to share several views with you of the card I made for Sheila's "Summer" theme giveaway:

I cut the card, the  card insert, and the panels out on my cricut, and used a Fiskars punch along the outer edge of the card.  I also cut the scalloped edge tag inside with the wording on my cricut then taped it using removable tape to a piece of typing paper, inserted it into my printer and typed "Summertime... and the living is easy".  I added a ribbon and a cabachon that matches the paper panels to the front of the card.  As far as the flower on the front and the little bumble bee on the inside, I actually don't remember where  I got them from.  I've had them a while and, I believe they came with the paper.  I think it was a set I ordered from QVC a year or so ago.  Anyway,the labels were more than likely tossed when I first opened the packs to use -- sorry!!!  I really would like to to keep/remember where my supplies come from, but when I get to crafting, that idea just goes out the window!  LOL!!!   Finally, I inked the edges with blue ink from Martha Steward. 

I hope everyone likes the card!

Well, that's it for now -- don't forget Showcase #7!

I'll be seeing you!
