Summer in the Sun with House-Mouse Designs

Summer is here! My kids are free from school and it's going to be a challenge keeping them in one place for long. If they are outside having fun like the House-Mouse Designs are for this week's Stampendous theme week then I'm all for it!

Today I have a Dragonfly Ride card to share. Had SO MUCH fun coloring this one looking at dragonfly wings for colors that popped out at me.

Stop by and see more from the design team this week!
