Another card to share and some challenges, too

Hi everyone. Today was the first day not teaching summer school in awhile. I was able to sleep in a bit and my little Mimi let me. How nice of her :) I didn't get up until a little after 7. It is amazing, when you become a parent, what sleeping late is compared to when you don't have children. This afternoon I made another card ~ it was way too hot to spend much time outside and I love making cards (even when they become frustrating).



It is based on the Cardabilities #57 Sketch shown below.



I am also entering it into the {ippity} bright color challenge and the Unity summer time challenge.

I used the balloons from the May Unity kit of the month, summer from the June 2010 KOM (I think), and hello... from the {ippity} set How you doin'?, and Gurnsey Ginham (also from {ippity}). The paper is Lime Rickey by Basic Grey ~ oh how I love these colors!!!

A couple of other cards I made recently also using Unity stamps: (you can read more about them if you scroll down)



Have a great weekend!!!
