TGIF 117--Theme Week-Summertime Blues

When I first saw the theme for this challenge, I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do.  I don't really suffer from the summertime blues and the lyrics to the song just talk about the blues from wanting to enjoy summer instead of having to work.  Since I love my work, I don't really have the summertime blues and I love when my children have no school and more time for other experiences.  But, my daughter had a great idea about this theme: she suggested losing your ice cream would cause the summertime blues.   And, she didn't even know that I have been focusing on the Cool Treats stamp set right now.  So, the idea for my card design was born.

 I think I found the source of Summertime Blues, at least for me.  When my cool treats melt away or fall on the ground before I can enjoy them, I have the summertime blues.

Make sure you check out the inspiration from the design team and other creative entries in #tgifc117

  1. What a great spin on the "Summertime Blues" theme! Spilling ice cream would definitely make me blue! lol Thank you so much for joining in with us this week over at TGIF Challenges! We look forward to having you again soon! ��

    1. Since it was a theme and not color challenge I definitely wanted to portray something that would make me feel "blue," but I couldn't help but add some blue color anyway. :)
