Artists Card and Tag Tuesday – In The Good Old Summertime

Even though today is still July, tomorrow will be August 1st, so I’m launching into August with a new theme.

August’s theme is In The Good Old Summertime.

We’re lucky to have five weeks in August, so we’ll have five weeks to make summery art cards and tags.
I decided it would be a good idea to present the weekly inspirations for the whole month to give you a chance to get an early start on your creations.  Remember, you have a week starting each Tuesday to make and link up your beautiful art here and you can post it anytime in our Facebook Group.  So if you don’t get your art done on time to link up here, you can still share on Facebook.  Anyone without a blog who wants to play can join in on Facebook as well.  Lean how to join in the fun by reading HERE.  
Here’s our In The Good Old Summertime Weekly Inspirations.  I’m giving you a few word prompts to help get your imagination working and the creative juices flowing.  How will you interpret the weekly inspiration, what does it mean to you or make you think of?
