It's Summer!!!

In an effort to celebrate the beginning of summer, one of my SBS2 sisters, Catherine, started a swap in our group and had the theme be summer themed cards. I had been playing around with my new Life's A Breeze set and came up with this card:

I thought it was just fun and so very summer like. As I said, I used Life's A Breeze stamp set. Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Brocade Blue; Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Brocade Blue, Close to Cocoa; Accessories: Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon; Tools: Tag punches, corner round punch for scalloped “waves” - except on the one in this picture, I think I used some wavy scissors, but on all the rest I used my corner round punch because I was going to use this card for a swap at convention and decided against it. Plus now it is on the dormant list...boo hoo! I guess it wouldn't be a practical set for wintertime anyway other than the fact that what do we all dream about in the winter, but sun and warmth right? (OK, maybe I dream a little bit about snow, but that's only on Christmas day!) I really enjoyed doing this swap with my SBS2 sisters, they are all so talented and I loved all the cards I received, very creative girls we have!

I'm still plugging along on all my convention swaps. I have a couple of organized swaps I signed up for that I need to finish then I am going to do make some general swaps. Only a month to go, yay, I'm so excited. I have the 4th of July weekend to work on all my swaps, we do not have any big plans, so I should get a lot accomplished. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I sure missed out on a fun swap! What was I thinking? This card is so sweet! Love the water & the bubbles. Makes me want to break out my little boat stamp from eat cake graphics. That orange ribbon looks great too. So fresh & summery. :0)
