Let The Summer Begin.. Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!

I'm so glad you've been playing along with us for our first ever Blog Hop!
Before visiting me you should have already been to Paula
and Nikki and seen their fabulous creations, read all about what they do during the summer AND left them some love by posting a comment on one of their blog entries! If not...please go back! You won't want to miss out on your chance to win the Grand Prize once you've made it through our Hop!



During the summer my husband and I always seem to have a lot of projects that needs to be done, but of course we enjoy the time off from work too! We try to be with our families as much as we can and just relax, barbeque, take the boat out and just feel the breeze swipe our faces. Good times! I'm a wimp when it comes to bathing so it has to be really hot water for me to jump in it, but it happens! LOL! I'm also a fond gardener and spend much time in our garden taking care of my beloved plants and bushes:) Summer is my favourite time of year and it just makes me smile and feel happy:)

Please let me know what makes you smile when Summer comes!

Included with this post are some of my past summery creations! Enjoy!






Your next stop on your Hop will be
Priscillas blog! Have fun!

Love your summery cards

Summer smiles usually come when our 2 week family break arrives and we head off to a hot retreat and we can swim every day on a private pool :). Although to honest we just love being able to enjoy outdoors without getting wet :)!

Great hop!

Tanja sa...

These cards are so cute I love them both and your DT entry this week is stunning vintage and gorgeous :)

Just the weather makes me smile in summer the fact that I can go out without a coat and have the windows open at home without worrying about having to rush to close them when it starts raining lol

cards Line, I love the flowers in summer (although at the moment my hayfever kind of blurs my vision). I enjoyed swimming in the sea as a child but hate sand between my toes - sand shoes were a must. Now it's the peace and tranquility of our garden soaking up the rays and eating all the salad stuff my DH grows.

Linda sa...

Great cards. Summers are for a more laid back way of life....more casual...we raise deer, so watching all the new fawns play in the cool evenings bring a smile to my face :)

Lena Katrine sa...

Hei Line!

Nå har jeg besøkt både paula og Nikki - og nå deg!

Det beste med sommeren er å ha fri sammen med familien! Og så liker jeg å være på sjøen i den 23 fot store snekka vår, bare for å slappe av, lese eller spise reker og drikke kald hvitvin! Vi også så heldige å ha 1 km med sandstrand, og det er deilig å dra dit å bade - når temperaturen når 20 grader i vannet ;)

Ønsker deg en flott sommer, Line! Klem, Lena Katrine

scrappyjan sa...

Line, your cards are gorgeous!! What do I love about summer??? hummmmmmmm I have to laugh at that because where I lie we don't like summer at all.. It's always around 110 to 118 in the summer here but now the winters are GREAT 70 to 85 all winter long and we love to do it all. Boat, camp, travel, work in the garden... :o)

Hiya Line! Beautiful cards, as always!! As of yet, we aren't boat people, but we live in the land of the boat lovers, so I'm sure that sometime soon, we will find ourselves on a boat and loving it! I'm actually kind of excited to do that, so maybe this summer, if I can find time!!
Have a wonderful summer!

The outdoors always makes me smile during the summer, especially the nice weather and the chance to go camping and fishing. Thank for the chance to win!

martha sa...

I smile when I look up on a dark night and see the sky filled with millions of stars! That is one of the benefits of living out in the country with no city lights to interfere with the night sky!

Hi Line,

I love going out on the boat in the summer too...unfortunately, we don't have one of our own and unbelievably none of our friends have one either. Ahhh...the memories of a childhood!

Your cards are beautiful and I'm so glad that I actually own one of them!

Thank you so much for being a special part of the SSC DT! You bring such a tremendous amount of talent and love to us all!

Hugs,
