So Long, Summer -- BLD Inspiration Tuesdays

Hi there!!
If you are looking for my Loves Rubberstamps post, please click here.

It's Inspiration Tuesday over at BLD!!
Today's card is a fun make that I started before I left for the beach. 
It's my "So Long, Summer" card...
I have made a bunch of back to school cards this past week or two
 and my girls have been in school for 1 week now...
It's time for me to be thinking about fall. 


(She even comes w/ this sweet digi fish!)
When I printed this image out, seeing the fish reminded me of the Georgia aquarium and the fun we had there!! 
I have Summer Time Gidget at the aquarium enjoying all of the fish tanks!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon #200: Pretty Polka Dots
ABC Challenges: Coloring w/ Markers
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Designed to Color: Anything Goes
Pollycraft #6: For the Kids

Don't forget to pop over and see what the other lovely ladies
of BLD have made for today!! 

Hope you have a GREAT day!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
