Good Old Summer!

So is it hot enough for you? Well it is Summer and the temps are reaching the high 90's here and baby that is hot! This is also being shared (my day) over at Artistic Outpost, so if you would like more details and pictures, stop on over and say, HI.
I really wanted to do something to celebrate summer and all it's glory and as luck would have it, Linda's new challenge at Frilly and Funkie is, "Just Case It" and she is talking about one of her 12 Tags from Christmas 2013, but the fun part is that it must have a summer twist!
Linda's Tag
My "CASE" is Linda's tag of Week 10 and my inspiration was obviously Tim's Ornate Frame (Distress Ink no Glitter) and in place of the pretty red bow and holly leaves, cheesecloth and sea shells, a little black "Speckled" stenciling replaced the Holly. Since "Anything Goes" at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we will be linking over there.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with summer fun!

Klasse die drei Badenixen im Vintage-Stil.
Und das weihnachtliche Tag ist ganz bezaubernd mit dem Ilex, liebe Terry.

Great CASE of the Christmas tag! LOVE the bathing beauties on yours, wonderful summer twist.

Yes, it's been toasty around here too, but I won't complain if it will stay under 100'
