Welcome to Summer!

It's official...school ended yesterday at 11:55, and my daughter informed me she had grown a bit taller since breakfast and was now technically a 1st grader. I'll admit, I got a little misty. Where does the time go? Then I snapped out of it, because it's summer, and I get to spend the whole thing with her! I've missed her so much since she started school - we used to spend every second together.

We kicked of summer break with a stop at our local library on the way home from school. I've come up with a summer reading program for her, and for every five new books she learns to read she gets to buy one from her Amazon wishlist. She is SUPER excited.

Today I'm sharing a sweet summertime card I made using Wonderful World, a sixlet set by Lizzie Anne Designs. I left the card super simple and not really embellished at all because that's what summer is about for us - no frills, just fun. We'll be outside on the swings, at the pool, walking to the library, packing up for a fun beach trip, and doing some rainy day family movies too. This card is also my sneak peek for the upcoming Design Team Delights gallery over at Christian Paper Crafts. The theme for June is Sweet Summertime, so this card works perfectly! Head over to the Creative Blog to see what else is being shared today, and to find out all the details on the upcoming gallery and how you can see it!
