Holiday Time!

A closer look

My cute die cut!
The sentiment (also a die cut)
The inside of my card!
It is hard to believe that summer will soon be over and soon the kids will be back at school. Like most people we are trying to cram as much as we can in these hot summer days. Well, here is a fun challenge at The Paper Shelter and  it is Holiday Time!  I chose "Where We Goin'?" digi for my card. Yes, she is one of my favorites! I hope you will take time to join this fun challenge and remember if you use a stamp from The Paper Shelter you could win $30 to spend in there store on the items of your choice! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Me and Bobbie McGee (Janis Joplin)
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train

And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
It rode us all the way to New Orleans
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna

I was playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues, yeah
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
We sang every song that driver knew
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

Nothin', don't mean nothin' hon' if it ain't free, no no
And, feelin' good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues
You know, feelin' good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee
From the Kentucky coal mine to the California sun

There Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done
Yeah, Bobby baby kept me from the cold
One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away

He's lookin' for that home, and I hope he finds it
But, I'd trade all of my tomorrows, for a single yesterday
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

Nothin', that's all that Bobby left me, yeah
But, feelin' good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues
Hey, feelin' good was good enough for me, mm-hmm
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

Hi Patty I dont know how the US holidays go but our little ones will break up in a couple of weeks and wont go back till September, and my my the weather has been so hot here in the UK for the last month I bet it will change once they are on holiday it has a nasty habit of doing so.
