A little summer still left....

There is still a little summer left until the kids go back to school...I just love when they are home, enjoying there free time! Mind you, it has been a busy one, one has a job, hockey, soccer and dirt biking! Lots of summer fun! We are lovin' every minute of it!

I just purchased this stamp at Stamping Bella called "Lacie with Ice Cream" by Mo Manning. I coloured this little cutie with copics, used one of my favourite EK punches from Michaels, and then have added some embossed swirls using the cuttlebug.

I hope you are able to enjoy some wonderful summer weather.... Thank-you for taking the time out of your day to come and visit, I so appreciate your visits!

  2. I've never seen her images, but I love this one! Gorgeous card. Hard to believe our boys start high school in just over a week, huh? Is Justin nervous? Andrew is...but they'll be ok.
