Sentimental Sundays Celebrate Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sentimental Sundays “Celebrate Summer” blog hop. Tuesday, June 21st, is the official first day of summer in the northern hemisphere and we are ready for all the summer fun to begin. For our friends down under who are moving into their winter months and may not feel like creating a summery project, they may be making “Sparkly or Shimmery” projects.

You should have arrived here from Ann E.’s blog. If not, you might want to start the hop at the beginning, the Sentimental Sundays blog, so that you don’t miss anything.

For my project, I used Mo Manning’s digital image, Janie in July. I love this image. Janie reminds me of how my daughter looked a few years ago. I think she had a pink swim suit almost identical to this.

I’m not really comfortable coloring people. If you follow my blog, you might have noticed that I don’t ever do cards with people on them. Okay, I take that back. I have done 2 other cards where I have colored people. Trust me, you don’t want to look for them. Anyhow, I made a goal to try to practice my coloring and use some images with people over the summer. This card is the first step (after studying LOTS of coloring tutorials.)

The Sentimental Sundays team is still having our usual challenge this week. We hope you will join in our “Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment) challenge. Our sponsor is the talented Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. The challenge prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection.

As you hop along with us, don't forget to leave comments along the way. There are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their blog hop posts. The 3 winners will each win a $10 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! The hop ends on Friday, June 24th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, June 26th.

Your next stop on the hop is Lou Mac. I know she has something wonderful for you. If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the complete blog hop list on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.


Thank you so much for hopping by.
