Summer! Well, it sure is!!


Happy Saturday to all you crafters out there.  If your weather is anything like ours at the moment, it's a good day to stay in and play with your stamps!!  It's going to get to 32C today and with the humidity, about 45C.  Yikes, I don't think I'll be doing any gardening today.

Our theme at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps this week is Summer and I thought this little card says it quite nicely.  The set these stamps are from is called 'Keep Swimming'.  I actually made this card for my grandson, I hope he likes it.

I used some adorable Anchors Aweigh papers from Doodlebug. The card stock I used is some retired Ballet Blue from S.U., also some retired Marigold Morning.  I do wish they would bring that shade back.  I used the 'Hope Your Day Is A Splash' sentiment from the set, added a comical little fish button and some matching twill tape.  Hope you like it.

Happy Stampin',
Diana

Okay, so that's all the important stuff covered!  Now to my card.  I used one of the images from the set 'Snail Mail' to make a birthday card for a friend in England.  I think this image of the little postman is perfect for that.  It's for an older gentleman, but I think this stamp works for any age.  I used retired Close to Cocoa for the base and matting, also some gorgeous new Crisp Cantaloupe for some of the matting.  All of the papers came from Kaisercraft Hopscotch pad and I added some mid brown baker's twine and some brown pearls.  That's it, a simple card, but I hope my friend likes it.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, folks,
Happy Stampin',
Diana
