Vintage Poppy and Denim Thank You

I have been having a slow time of blogging lately with this laptop.  I'm grateful for the backup plan, of course, but I am eager to find a new monitor so that I can get back to business as usual.

Here are today's challenges:

2) Crafty Creations #72 {Stitching}
3) Creative Card Crew #52 {Thank You}
4) wee Memories #10 {In Stitches}
5) Fun 2 Stamp {Summer Card}

When I think of summer, it's not swimming pools and beaches I usually dream of--it's blue jeans, gardens, hammocks, and all kinds of wonderful summer flowers. So, with these things in mind, I made a Summery Thank You card that's all about my vision of summer. It has the blue jeans, the poppies, the casual look and of course my trademark butcher's twine... which sort of reminds me of the rope hammocks from Pawleys Island, SC.  Ahhhh........

Here's the card:
