This month's blog hop theme was summer-inspired! We are supposed to pick something summer related and use that as a springboard. Given that it has rained all but 5 days in the month of June (a FB friend mentioned this tid-bit in his status update yesterday as it rained AGAIN!), I decided to look for summer inspiration in a magazine... where is is always sunny!
This pic called to me as soon as I say it and it definitely screamed lazy days of summer to me. How relaxing and inviting this chair looks!! I would love to curl up with a good book and kick my flip flops over the side too. :)
But since I can't, I made the card instead - LOL ... I used the colors, drink, pillow, sunglasses and flip flops and built my card around those things. I tilted the green label to mimic the pillow laying on the lounge chair. I think this makes for a fun summery way to say congrats to a friend. Thanks for checking out my try at the blog hop. Can't wait to see how everyone else was inspired by summer!
