Shimmering Summer.



I don't know about you but it seems like this summer has been so, so fun for me. My boys had their birthdays. So You Think You Can Dance and Project Runway are back. The Olympics gave me such pride, inspiration, and warm fuzzy feelings (And I'm not just talking about Nathan Adrian...HA!).

And I got to go on a much needed girls' trip (more about this later). And although it seems to have gone by so fast, we still have half of August and all of September.

If you have any tips on a cheap mini-trip for Labor Day, let me know. We'd love to go away but with three major trips planned for the next year, I don't think we can afford anything big.

Anyway, my card for today features Shimmer Bean from TGF. Isn't she perfect for Summertime? I sure hope Marie makes some boy beans as I'd love to make some bean cards for my tots.

For the card, I experimented with some mists and paint. :).

Don't forget that you still have time to join in on a chance to win some felt flowers - go here!

Have a wonderful week!
