Seems almost everyone in our family has a summer birthday.  This is a card I made for my granddaughter who just turned 15.  I didn't have time to work on a card today so thought you might like to see her card rather than nothing.  This card was made over a week ago and mailed and I did not make a list of all the dies I used.   I used a "retired" Marianne Design embossing folder for the background.  I have a box of previously made flowers that I used along with some Cheery Lynn leaves and Martha Stewart Branches.  The butterfly is from Memory Box and the sentiment is from JustRite.  On the inside, I created a pocket to include a gift card.  



 This is going to be a very busy summer for me.  Since Joan and I are going to CHA next month, we are thinking ahead for her August workshop. We are hoping to have all the projects designed before I leave to go out to see Joan.  After I get back from Indiana,  I will be going on vacation with my husband to visit our sons in San Diego and Phoenix. Since we are not having much sun here, we are looking forward to fun in the sun!   While I am away, there are some new releases I hope to have cards ready for, so if I miss some days posting, you'll know I am still busy designing for future exciting releases.  I hope you are having a great summer.  Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog.
