Summer loving, had me a blast...

Happy Friday everyone!!
I am so glad the weekend is upon us. Even though ours will be a bit busy, at least we can sleep in. ;)
Today is a new challenge over at Raise The Bar - have you been playing along? While I don't offer any prizes, there is the opportunity to be a Guest Bar-Tender the following week. Come on over and join us!
This week, our theme is:
Celebrate Summer

Easy! Fun! And completely doable. Here is my card, inspired by the recent thunderstorms that we've been having:

DeeDee is so cute, I just love coloring in her afro puffs. heehee! I used my Kid Quotes from Inkadinkado, which was perfect for the summer theme. Can you believe I got that rainbow DP for free? Someone had it in a free bin at a recent yard sale. Shocking, I know, because it is so much fun to use!
Here are my current challenges with this card:
Polka Doodle's Sew and Sew challenge
The Pink Elephant's Bright Colors challenge
Cupcake Craft's Summer Delights theme
The Crafty Calendar The Great Outdoors challenge
You can see more awesome samples by the DT HERE on the blog, as well as link up your summer themed card. I hope to see you there!
And before I forget, hop over to the Whimsie Doodles blog HERE to guess what this little snippet is:

Ok, You lucky girl! I LOVE that rainbow paper (and am kind of hoarding mine!) It goes fabulously with that quote and your cute little DeeDee!
I also love your new blog look! I am terrified to change mine again because the one time I did (with a kit, so it should have been easy!) it took forever and my DH's help to tweak the code to get back the things I "lost"! :-)Traci
