The challenge this week on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is Summer. Well believe, me based on heat along summer has arrived in Mississippi in a major way. The only thing that made this challenge difficult for me,  is the fact that it's so hot, I really don't want to leave my house to go to Tazmania.

At any rate, I worked on getting all my my card parts set up in Make the  Cut yesterday, even though I never got out to TM. I didn't give myself a chance to talk myself out of going out there today.

For my image, I had to use this image called Sassy Sally in Her Inner Tube from the Sassy Cheryls Store. If you're going to be outside, the only way is to be on the water. There's nothing quite so relaxing as tubing down a creek. in summer. I've colored Sally with Copics and paper pieced her her inner tube rather than the old tire inner tube I had. Cheryl, I just had to give her some freckles.

The papers are  digital and from two kits from Just So Scrappy 2. One kit is Aloha and the other is Pool Party.

The fun part is that I used my Make the Cut software and my Black Cat cutter to actually cut out my images of Sally in her inner tube. It saved me a ton of time.. I also used it to create the water and print and cut the sentiment.

I'm trying to get some OWH cards created and since I had the Black Cat cutting out the images, so I used this time saver to create 6 cards for my OWH box. Just showing y'all I really was busy today being creative.
