End of Summer Fun

Here are a couple of cards that I made for challenges this weekend.  It is getting close to the end of summer, so I’m having some fun.  Hope you are, as well.


Both of my parents, all of my uncles, one cousin, and my children all went to Sunnyslope High School in Phoenix AZ.  The school colors are green and gold.  I know the background paper looks more blue than green, but it really is a rich, dark green.  This card was done for the Sketch Challenge on Speedy TV this week.  I did put the sentiment in a different place.


  • Gina K. – Various Verses
  • Memento – Cottage Ivy
  • Assorted flowers, paper and ribbon



This one was done for the Technique Challenge on Speedy TV, which was a Criss Cross Card.  Had fun with this one and tried to do a scene of a park near the sea.  This was also entered in an outdoor scene challenge on Stamp TV and a scene challenge on CardSwap this week, too.


  • Gina K. – Hope Grows, Enjoy the Sunshine, Follow Your Dreams, Faithful Florals
  • Koh-i-Noor – Woodless Colour Pencils
  • Sakura – Glaze pens – gray, red
  • Recollections – papers
  • Memento – Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves, Pear Tart, London Fog, Canteloupe, Ladybug

Thanks for spending some time with me today!  Now, go out and enjoy the end of Summer in your own way.

    1. Thanks, Teresa. Playdoh still has this ugly/gross spot on her side, but the swelling is almost completely gone and she is playing again and spitting out her pills.


  1. What beautiful cards, Golda! I’m SO super excited that you were able to play along in this week’s Sketch With a Twist Challenge. Your take on the sketch is just perfect!
