OSAT Blog Hop - Dog Days of Summer

This blog challenge left a lot to the imagination. Just what exactly is "Dog Days of Summer?" My interpretation is hot, sunny and cheerful. Can't wait to see what everyone else's interpretations will be... I am stop #11 in this month's blog line-up, but you may have just traveled over from Marisa Gunn's website. I love how her cards are clean and simple but super creative at the same time!

I love making cards for the hop and for other challenges but truth be told I am not a big fan of making projects. I made this at 6:00 am (an hour before I left for work) the day before the hop...woke up early stressing what to make...this super cute little box can hold a couple of Hershey kisses - and who doesn't love chocolate kisses???

 i just love this

I hope to remember this at Easter next year - perfect for jelly bean holders for my co-workers...

 love how the Ken Oliver Color Bursts laid down for the background...

I have been working a part time job working weddings and parties for a caterer this summer, in addition to my full time job and have not had much time or energy for the craft room...this was super fun and it felt so good to be creative... thanks One Stamp At A Time for allowing me the privilege to participate. 

Next up is the very talented Justin Krieger and i am anxious to see his take on Dog Days of Summer. He NEVER disappoints!

I hope my post has inspired you in some way. Leave me a comment and let me know just how...I personally enjoy blog hops for the variety and creativity and inspiration I gain from all you talented crafters out there!
