Make a Wish

Does anyone else find it hard to do paper crafting in the summer? I do. With the weather being so nice and the garden work to be done, not to mention all the family activities that fill up the weekends, I find it very hard to go downstairs to my craft table and work with my paper. And with all the supplies I need, I can not very well bring my paper crafting to the beach...so needless to say my paper crafting slows down considerably in the summer.

But every two weeks, armed with a new sketch challenge from The Memory Nest, I do get something done. And last week, thanks to a couple rainy days that forced me indoors, I made two cards.

Here is the latest sketch:
This card was for Claire (who turned 5 on the weekend...how can my baby be 5?) and it is very close to the sketch - blocks of paper, circles in the corners, diagonal lines as part of the background. Claire loved her card, but then it has a fairy on the front, so what is not to love?
This card is more loosely based on the sketch. I think it is really pretty though and love the patterned squares against the patterned background. 
Are you able to tear yourself away from the beautiful summer weather and play with your paper? Are you inspired to create with this sketch? You can link up your layouts or cards at The Memory Nest

Now I am off to spend a little more time outside, soaking up the sun and the warmth. Have a lovely day.
