Are you guys ready? I know I am! This week's challenge at The Cameo Spotlight is to use a card with the theme of "Summertime." When I came across the image in the Silhouette store I was touched. How sweet and innocent does this little boy look? It reminded me of my carefree summers as a kid. I imagine he's hanging out on his summer break, doing what little boys do. I of course had to work a little magic - I transformed the image into a sketch image and then flood filled it with the sketch fill feature. The image was printed on vellum and then cut out using my Cameo. You guys know how much I love to rock the Print & Cut. And hey, this is something else new - it's an easel card - my very first! I've been wanting to do this for a while and I finally got around to it. By the way, the sentiment is actually a line from the lyrics from one of my favorite songs - Summertime by George Gershwin.
