Think Summer….

I think it is fitting that I am featuring the “Sweet Summer” Sale-A-Bration stamp set this week. For the second day in a row I’m waking up to snow — granted it is just flurries and not adding up to much, but I. Am. Done. I don’t even like the to look at snow anymore! I’m also waking up today with the start of a cold… Yuck! You know, sore throat, one side of my nose that won’t stop running and an overal feeling of yuckiness. So to say that I would like summer to arrive would be an understatement! Actually, though, I don’t want to skip spring as I love that season. I love the fresh feeling spring brings with new buds on the trees and little birdies chirping in the morning.

Back in Business….

Happy Monday! The only reason why I can say that is because I have the day off … 🙂 And it is going to be a goof off day filled with fun stuff — no housework, no working, nothing boring like that! I wanted to get back in the routine, however, of posting my daily Sale-A-Bration posts. This week we are looking at the Sweet Summer stamp set, which you can earn free with a $50 order. This one took a little while to come together. I started with the Sale-A-Bration Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series paper mixed in with this card, but it simply overpowered the stamped images so I went simple with just some embossed polka dots (made fabulously easy with my Big Shot), a little punch action (with my scallop border punch, my little tag puncy and my big circle punch) and of course some ribbon. This stamp set doesn’t look like much when you see it in the catalog, but it really makes some great cards once you start playing with it.
