Sunday Morning Challenge Review

Hello!  We're trying to make sure everyone gets a chance to enter our challenges so we're not posting the recaps until Sundays now.

The challenge "Dog Days of Summer" seemed to be a big hit!  Jana's fab Zeke Shrine was a great inspiration.

So, without further adieu and in no particular order, here's who participated in the challenge.

Look at Amy's adorable Harley looking cool and chic and fun in this sweet and colorful ATC!  Really captures the vibrancy and energy of summer!
Oh Chat Noir, what a lovely gentle scene of summer - from the sunlight coming through in the image to the cool water, this is a wonderful take on the challenge.  

Summer and flowers - go together like lemonade and a nice shady spot don't they?  Deena's been quite busy making lovely flowers, we love her idea of making them into magnets - wouldn't the grocery list look less boring when surrounded by beautiful blossoms?
Oh my gosh, this tri-fold card from dear Gini had us loving the energy and lovely vibrancy!  Aren't those stamps something else?  I want to live on this farm!!!

Jeannette has also captured the fun of gardening in this sweet card that is sure to make its recipient smile!  Lovely coloring and a  great image!  (but we never look so cute and fresh when we're gardening - LOL)

Take a look at the next lovely card we have, this one is from Sally and it makes you feel happy just seeing it.  From the lovely coloring to the beautiful touches, it evokes the gentler but still colorful aspect of summer.
Taking the theme in a beautiful manner as well is our contributor Hazel who shares with us this sweet and colorful card with two adorable doggies!

We hope you go and check out each other's blogs - you will find so much inspiration and eye candy - it's a real treat!  For example, Lindsay made this card and several others that are just wonderful to see.  They're masculine cards that are eye catching and really beautifully done.  This card is but one, you should see the others as well.  Doesn't this also make you think rest and relaxation?

Electra made a scrapbook layout celebrating the enjoyment of the water in summer - this time a seaside trip and the embellishments really make you smile at this snapshot of childhood!

Your Poobah Rosemary here is sitting in the Poobah doghouse for being so late with a submittal.  But I had a silly and "punny" take on our challenge.  Elvis Pugsley and Tom Bones ATCs, kind of silly but lighthearted too!

Look at this gorgeous card from Linda C., isn't this something grand?  The sentiment, colors, images, flowers, and bow work so beautifully together.  What friend wouldn't beam to receive such a lovely card?

So, that's the recap of all the wonderful projects you submitted. 
Come back and see what our next challenge will be!
