Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge -

Happy Sunday and welcome to another Simply Sunday Challenge with Getting Cricky with K. Andrew Designs.  Today we are featuring projects that are all about Summertime.  Be sure to check out my DT sisters' projects. Their work is phenomenal.  Click HERE after you've checked out the details on my card.

As a side note, I've been out of it lately and missed selecting my winner from the last blog hop.  We had death in the family and I'm still out of town today.  It's been rough BUT I know that God is still God and it's all good.  So, without further adieu, the winner from my last blog hop is...#7 Miriam.  I know her so I'll be getting in touch with her to settle up.  Thank you for your patience.

I was so happy for this challenge because right now, I need the sunshine of the summer and to feel a lift.  Today, my card features the Splashtastic Summer stamp set.

My card is an A2 card and features a cute digi from Bugaboo Stamps that I have colored with my Copic markers.  Be sure to head on over to Kristal's store to pick up your own sets of stamps.  I PROMISE you will not be disappointed.  Be sure to submit your work for the challenge.  I'll be looking for you!  

Please keep our family in your prayers.  It's been really rough.  We just found out yesterday after returning from one funeral, that we've lost two more family members.  That's seven in one week.  YES you read correctly.  Seven in one week that were directly connected as family or close friends.  Smiling through the tears! Remember, I love you and there is nothing you can do about it!
