Soooo I gave ya a wee 'teaser' with the part- image of the inside of my card....after all it's Hallowee'en in a few hrs..... so perhaps this is my (very lame) trick?? it is the full card front:
Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-----here's my card for last August duel,finally!Truth is I already had started to post this one before my previous two cards ,then I lost everything with a quick klick of the wrong keyboard tab and was too upset to even try to repost....arghhhhh...You would think I had learned my lesson(s) by now, after several posts of mine went  poofffffffffffff  both here in blogland and on my favorite cards' site!! :/
Anyhow....on with it: my friend Judy (from the Divas) and I (from the Dazzlers) were the hostess (last August) for the monthly duel between these two creative group of chicks...(pardon the pun...could not resist
We decided on: 'It Is Hot, Let's Keep It Cool' theme, being smack in the middle of summer we deemed it quite appropriate. For my group, I chose to send images of  this cool chick  relaxing in the water sipping a favorite beverage. It is by Penny Black,  one of my favorite stamping  company . Judy and I also asked our groups to tell us one of their favorite summer drinks and their favorite things to do during the summer months.
For me, I like to sip on a half glass of beer mixed with same amount of seven up...It is called a Shantee (sp?) and it is very refreshing during a heated day or evening. The thing I love to do in the summer is camping...I absolutly LOVE it! Hubby and I re-discovered our love for camping last year, -after about 25 yrs- when we used to take our kids camping with an old tent trailer but now ,instead,we take our grandkids  with us sometimes,it is soo much fun for all of us!
This year, we haven't yet winterized our RV....I sooo would like to go camping in the snow!!!!
At least once! :o) What do YOU think?? Too crazy of an idea?? ehehe LOL

I adore the blue waves? IMHO, that piece made the kit so much more fun! I am so glad to be part of this group and happy we can create 'together' even while being on opposite coasts!

Way to go Paola--it sure was worth the wait to see your card and you are such a tease by showing the inside before the front.

I really like your layout and the colors are perfect! And, you know I love the image too!

Thanks for sharing and being a part of our fun group.
