Summer is FINALLY here!

Well, it's been a while.  Life has a tendency to get away from me.  My three youngest just finished up school yesterday and the schedule of end of school activities is out of control.  I've done band concerts, yearbooks, cafeteria duty, Greek festivals, end of the year parties, field days, and graduations.  Add to that ballet recitals, soccer games, hockey practice, figure skating, Girl Scouts, pool parties, play dates, and you have quite the busy life. 

I finally sat down to stamp this week (TWICE!!!) to make graduation cards and Father's Day cards.  After I was done, I wasn't quite ready to leave my studio, so I decided to play.  I got the new Tim Holtz Summer Distress Inks this week.  Wow, such pretty colors and definitely summery.  I decided to pair them with PTI's Flippin' Out stamps.  You can't get much more summer than flip flops at the beach. 

The sand is real sand mixed in glue from a product called MuddPuddles.  I thought it added just the right touch. 

This card is going to my Dad when he takes each of my kids for a week in July.  God bless him!  And I think he'll really need it. 

Off to play whilie the mojo is in the mood.  CIAO!~
