Summer Fun

One of the activities we do EVERY August is go to the county fair.  In fact, we usually enter things like bakery items, photography, flowers.  So far I have ended up with at least one blue ribbon each year.  Some of my grandchildren enter and receive some kind of recognition each time too.  Of course they enjoy the carnival rides at least one day during the week.   I made my Summer card, the challenge this week at the Kraft Journal, with that as my inspiration.

The card base is Brown Kraft.  The panel is Buff Ivory.  I love this Ticket Stub Twill Ribbon and I really like the fact that the repeat pattern fits either an A2 card whether portrait or landscape.  (Doesn't it just bug you to have to cut in the middle of a pattern to make it fit on a card?  Drive me nuts!)
All the images are pieces from a Stampin Up scrapbook kit.  Can we say old???  Oh, my goodness.  I have had these pieces at least 14 years.  Just knew I would use them one day!

The gals at the Kraft Journal would love to see your summer cards.  The challenge runs from today, Monday, through Sunday p.m.
