Summer has begun!

Price Chopper had a sale on seedless watermelons this week, so I just HAD to pick one up. Everyone in the house just loves the juicy, sweet, delicious goodness! :) I think watermelon was a perfect way to kick-off summer and enjoy the gorgeous weather we have been having!

Long weekends rock!

I just love long weekends! Our local Home Depot is closing so they are having huge sales. I checked it out yesterday and got some great stuff for my stamp space. After I got all organized, I was inspired to try out some of my new toys.

On Friday, I received a huge box from Papertrey. I bought all the colors of their Perfect Match cardstock, inks, and ribbons! OOOHHH!!! New colors to play with! They are so beautiful and the quality is out of this world.

I paired my new favorites with another favorite...Posies for You from Whipper Snapper and Anna Wight. The fresh colors were prefect to celebrate this gorgeous weather we've been having!

Stamps: Posies for You by Anna Wight
Cardstock: Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, and Stamper's Select White from Papertrey Ink
Ink: Copic Markers, Lemon Tart, White Craft

Here is a little card I made a few weeks ago. It took like 3 weeks to make this card! LOL! I colored the image and it sat on my desk for a few days...then I added Stickles to the image and let it sit for a few days, then I embossed the polka dots and let it sit, then FINALLY I finished it up! Some cards are worth lingering over! LOL!

I just love all of Anna's Whipper Snapper stamps. They are so well thought out and versatile. The images are gorgeous and just beg to be used!
