Happy August,

August is typically the hottest month of the year in Texas and this year is no exception.  The heat and the Fab Friday 168 Card Challenge inspired today’s card. I typically make A2 sized cards but these bright and beautiful Adirondack chairs required a longer card for this long hot summer theme.

Colorful Adirondack Chairs using the Colorful Seasons and Colorful Layers Dies

This week the Fab Friday team presented a color challenge.  These are some of my favorite colors! It was so much fun using that cute Adirondack die to cut out the chairs.

It’s easy to imagine sitting in one of those colorful adirondack chairs at the beach.  The “just breathe” sentiment reminds us that the long dog days of summer will end soon.


  • Card Measurements – Basic Black Cardstock – 9 1/4″ X 8″ scored & folded at 4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock – 9″ X 3 3/4″
