CS#144 - Summertime!

Summer has just started here - I finally got my garden in, planted all my pots (can't leave them out all year here because of the cold), and bought some hanging baskets (instant gratification there)!  I guess I am just curious by nature because every year I look for the most unusual thing I can find in the green house.  I like to see how different things grow.  Winners in the past?  broccoli, okra, heirloom tomatoes... this year?  You'll never guess!!!!  Peanuts!  I've never seen these grow and just had to buy them!  I only bought two plants in case they decide they want to take over my garden - I can't wait to see what happens!


Are you ready for a new challenge?  Well it's a new month (summer's coming on strong its JUNE!!!)  so that means we have a new muse at CASE Study Challenge.    Were you able to guess who from the peeks Chupa shared?  Well hold on to your hats!  This month's muse is Lisa Spangler from Sideoats and Scribbles blog!  And can I just say I think you are going to really enjoy playing along all month!   Our guest designer this month is Lynn Mangan from The Mango Boys and Me Blog!  And yes!  There is more!  Tasnim Ahmed, Maureen Merritt , and Silke Ledlow have joined the CASE Study Design Team!

Well check out this inspiration photo folks!  I see lots of good things here - a rainbow of colors, the alternating feathers, the black stamping over the colored swatches.... what inspires you?    I turned the feathers into shoes in alternating colors!  Bright colors always remind me of summer and this image is so fun!
If you need a little inspiration, see what the rest of the team did with this.



We'd love to see what you do with this sketch!  I hope you will join us at CASE Study and I hope your summer is off to a good start!!

You can feel the laughter just bursting from this fun card, Jeanne! I can also see hair streaming in the wind and that little hint of sunburn. I LOVE your colorful shoes! I have tennies or loafers in all those colors except the orange. Off I go, shopping . . . !!
