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!~


  1. So cute, Deb! I've seen that MuddPuddles stuff (most likely at your house or Angela's), and it looks great. I love how you used it here. Happy summer to you!

  2. This is adorable! I love the fun colors and that sand stuff is so cool!

  3. Hey, I'm writing this to contact you from SCS because I don't want to post there. They will ban you for breaking the law, lol. Because recruiting is against the rules. I saw that you want to sign up for SU. The sweetest person I know is LaLatty, Patricia Gorka. I would ask her if she is interested. She might not be if you only plan on being a hobby demo for a short period of time. But, you never know - she might want to. Anyway, just letting you know what a sweet person she is. You probably know her from SCS. Have a wonderful day. Lynn
