The summer is here and the temperature outside makes me want to relax on a beach, read a good book & sip on something cool.  OK its a nice thought but not realistic.  So I'll just stay home in the cool air and make a card that reminds me of a beach. Be real & stay cool!

Moon Lake

If they would have named this stamp set Moon River, we could all start singing.  Instead we get a great masculine card from a great stamp set.

You Amaze Me

The Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper has a variety of embossed patterns and that can be sponged with any color you desire.  It is so much fun and a no brainer.  Right up my alley.  And that Butterfly…'s Fabulous!

Lotus Blossom

The Lotus Blossom stamp set is a beautiful triple stamp set that can be used with one or multiple colors of ink.  It is gorgeous either way. I've seen it all over Pinterest and just had to give it a try.  Any sentiment will work with this card for many occassions.

You’re the Best!

The colors in the Best Every Designer Series Paper  are very cheerful.  Even though this paper series will soon retire, the card design is versatile and could be used with several other paper series.
