It's gonna be a hot one!

Well the kids are now back in school and it's finally starting to look like summer around here! lol It's supposed to get up around 90 degrees, so it is a great day to go to the Splash Pad with Easton, my cousin, Mandy, and her little girl, Sophie.  That means it was a Clean and Simple kind of card day so we can play for the rest of the afternoon!

I found this cute little sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and paired it with the color challenge at colourQ since it worked perfectly with the stamp I had already chosen to use.
I was quite bummed to see that Tag It was one of our stamp sets to receive at Convention, as it was one of my least favorite stamp sets in the catalog. I have made up for it with Gorgeous Grunge though, another one that we got that you have seen me using a ton! lol Anyway, I wanted to make a birthday card for Easton, who will be turning 5 in a few weeks, and I knew he would love that little birthday lizard.
He is pretty cute, so I'm sure I will be using it again.  I thought the Argyle Embossing Folder looked kind of like lizard skin, so that's why I chose that one. I might have to find a googly eye to put on there for Easton. He would love that. No time to search today's off to the Splash Pad we go on this hot summer day!
