CSC#145 - Call Me!

Hi everybody!  I hope your summer is off to a great start!  There are lots of festivals going on here - you know the sort held in your local park or at your church.  Rides that don't take up lots of space like the Ferris Wheel, Tilt a Whirl and Himalaya.  Fast food prepared in trailers - a corn roast from the Lyons club,  lots of  games for the kids, and of course the beer tent and bingo for the adults.  And well...  if you are lucky, maybe some fireworks or a place you can set out your blanket and listen to a band play.

Today I'm showing you a card I made for the CASE Study Challenge this week.  Our muse this month  is Lisa Spangler from Sideoats and Scribbles Blog and here is the inspiration photo.  Now I see lots of good things here - love the shapes, the little twine around the sentiment flag, the colors and circles. Lots of ways you can take this one - its pure clean and simple goodness and I was so tempted to take it in that direction but my crafty side just wasn't having it.   Lets see if you can find some of Lisa in here..... hexagon check, teal and red?  check, buttons and circles YES!  Oh and some twine too!
Lots of folks traveling for their summer holiday - maybe you are too?  Well here's wishing you a great adventure filled with lots of memories - oh and don't forget to call home once in a while!  Need a little more inspiration?  Hop on over to the rest of the CASE Study Design Team and see what they've been up to!!

Sounds like an Indiana summer to me! :) Your card totally draws me in--I just love all of the small details and layers. Love the travel theme. Speaking of traveling, I'll be visiting family in mid-July, perhaps we could meet up for lunch or coffee sometime? I'll keep you posted on my travel plans. :)
