Your So Sweet - Tart N Tangy

Happy July Everyone!!! I can't believe it is only in the 60's here in Ohio the first day of July!!! It has been a little abnormal wearing a light jacket and jeans. The weather does feel good, even though I do like it a little warmer. Today I decided to do the sketch challenge over at SCS, SC235. It was so funny because I thought about doing a sketch like this before with a My Favorite Things stamp and rainboots in the background, but for some reason I wasn't feeling it today so I didn't even attempt it...HAHA.. I was thinking "summer" today since its the first day of July. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by my blog today!!

It is too hot here in the UK at the moment....well for me it is anyway's muggy and sweaty yuk I am praying for some lovely storms and rain.

Trade place with you! We are in the upper 80's, looking at 90 for the 4th. I suppose it's better than rain. Love your summery (fresh fruit salad) card Crystal. {{{hugs}}}

Wow! You did a great job with the sketch challenge! I love it! I love how you did the sentiment, and all the bright, fun, cheerful summer colors. Great ribbon choice too. Its cold here too...but colder than where you are: were in the 50's! I can't take it anymore. But they say it will start warming up again. I'm looking forward to it.
