Growing Green ~ For You

Well, today is starting out sunny and bright, and that's a good thing because the fair is going on around my little part of the world.  We always look forward to it, but it also means summer is going to be coming to a close in just a couple of short weeks.  I'm not so sure I'm ready for summer to be done yet this year.  Seems like it just got here!  I did manage to get a few nice pictures of the sunset on my birthday, so that should help me remember we did have summer after all. ;)  



Anyway, Today's card is one that I made for my last stamp a stack and also for a card swap with The Red Hot Stampers.  


Not sure if you can tell or not, but I have shimmer paint on the flower.


Every now and then I like to make the inside almost as nice as the outside. :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
