the joys of summer.....

Me and summer seem to go hand and hand! I just love this time of year that is for sure. It will be even better once the kids are out of school and we can enjoy it! I actually was so happy to have won this stamp set from Our http://www.ourcraftlounge.com/Craft Lounger ! It has to be the cutest stamp set...full of wonderful summer images!

Paper: Papertrey Stamps: Magnolia, Our Craft Lounge Punch: Martha Stewart

I saw that Stampin for the Weekend has a challenge: Summer, I think this card will be well suited to put into the challenge!!!!

Have a great day...thank-you so much for stopping in to visit! I LOVE to read your comments, and appreciate each and every one of them!

  19. How cute is this! That is indeed an adorable image, and you've done it up perfectly on this cute card. I love your previous post with the fun things for the teachers. I finally ordered my Vintage Picnic set. Yea! Just have to share that I am finishing a quilt I started light-years ago. I'll have to include a picture when it's done. I share your sentiment about looking forward to the kids being home. I always looked forward to mine getting out for the summer. They grow up all too quickly.
