Anything Goes ....Challenge!

Image -- "Summer Attitude"

 A  closer look at the details
A cute charm....

The inside...with no sentiment yet!

I don't know about the rest of you in blog land but this has been a very busy summer for the Chapman household. We seem to race from one crises to another. My brother-in-law just had a full knee replacement. We have had illness, funerals and illness. This week we are helping our son and DIL in renovating their home they just purchased. Everyone is hot and tired at the end of the day and ready for bed. It doesn't leave much time to create. August is quickly approaching and it is always the month that I am ready for cooler weather. We have smoke and more smoke hanging in our valley from fires. Last night we had a thunder storm with lots of lightening and wind but little rain.  Enough complaining ...on to my card. This is such a fun image "Summer Attitude"  and perfect image  for our challenge "Anything Goes" at The Paper Shelter Challenge
It is also a double team participation so both "A" and "B" teams will try and inspire you. (And there is some lovely inspiration by my teammates). I hope you will take time from your busy summer to join us and play along. You could be the next winner of $30.00  to spend at The Paper Shelter !! Be sure and check out the lovely new images available. There is something for everyone!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Alan Jackson
Well, I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About workin' all summer just to try an' earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, to try to get a date
My boss says, "No dice, son, you gotta work late"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
