Sassy Cheryl's "Maddie" Swings into Summer!

Hey there, m'darlings!! Happy Tuesday!! Has summer arrived where you are? It has definitely arrived here in Richmond, VA, USA! Warm days and cooler evenings . . . and fireflies! (Some people call them "lightening bugs"! Whatever they're called . . . my two toy poodles love to bark at them! hehe!!) So . . . it's time for another fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog where Miz Ann has chosen an absolutely perfect theme . . .


It just so happens that this fortnight's challenge theme at Deep Ocean Challenge Blog is also SUMMER! So, I've decided to do a bit of  Design Team "double duty" by using this little card for both challenges!!  What'cha think?
It's Maddie! I just love her! Have you noticed that she is always wearing a funky hat?! I think it's her "signature" look!! This adorable little image is called "Swing Me a Story - Maddie." She is available in Sassy Cheryl's online store HERE. And, if you prefer "boys," this image is also available in a "Max" version HERE. They'd be cute merged together too . . . swinging side-by-side!! Here's a close-up . . . 
The minute I saw this cute Sassy Cheryl image, I knew exactly what kind of card I'd be making with her!! A "Tent" card!! You can find an easy tutorial HERE. They are super fun to make . . . and I think a "Tent" style card really showcases this particular Maddie!
