summer is here!


Today's weather forecast:

Sunny--High of 86, low of 72. Breezy, with east winds at 14mph; gusts up to 25mph. 

Happy official first day of summer! I love the longer days of summer--don't you?  More hours to stamp and color and take good sunny photos!



Here are two cards made with some fun images from Tiddly Inks. Christy created the little girl digi first and this month she added the little boy in her store.  They're too cute with their swim rings and arm bands.






It doesn't show up in the photos, but I added some gloss from the Aqua Lip pen on the goggles, arm bands and swim ring. And I used the big dot Cuttlebug folder for the first time. Love those dots!

Whatever you do this summer, have fun, be safe, and don't forget the sunscreen!

Stamps: Tiddly Inks
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Aqua Lip pen, Hero Arts paper flower, ribbon, buttons, pop dots
