Bring Back Beautiful The Beauty of Summertime/Vacation

WOW.  I can't believe it is July already.  You know what that means?  It is time for another Bring Back Beautiful challenge.   This month the theme is:


The beauty of Summer or Vacation. As summer is in full swing we are enjoying the warmer temperatures and many are going on vacation. Make a creation with the theme of summer or vacation and link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creation HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB12. You have until July 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!


I used the adorable new set from Flourishes called Garden Fresh.  I love the summertime because that means fresh veggies from my own garden.  I have fewer veggies than I have ever had this year.  The dirt/clay that is here in AL is NOT very good to grow anything in.  I even dug out a big hole and filled it with good dirt I bought at Lowe's.  I have 3 Tomato plants, 2 Bell Pepper plants, and a Cucumber vine.  I have already been getting tomatoes and cucumbers ripe from the vines, I am waiting on the Bell Peppers.




I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch No.8

We have a few changes here on the Bring Back Beautiful team.  We have two new members that you will LOVE.  Mona Pendleton and Iwona Palamountain are joining us and we are just delighted that there are here.  Both girls have a wonderful sense of design and I know they will inspire you just as much as the rest of the girls here on the BBB team.  Please make sure you stop by and welcome them to the team.

Here are the links to the rest of the design Team

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Happy 4th of July!

Heather, you are so unbelievably talented. I LOVE this card and would have used this super fun set myself if today didn't sneak up on my and I didn't have my card that was published to use. I love visiting your blog for inspiration, like a super lurker groupie. Hugs and have a very blessed 4th of July and God bless you.
