Hi all! Here it is, Wednesday already, the week seems to be flying by - probably because I have sooo  much to do, LOL!! I wanted to share to summery cards I made using lots of new product and colors - I am switching around my combinations to find which new colors are going to be my faves, heehee!  This first one is actually a set from the Summer Mini called King of the Grill.  I love this super fun guy, he always makes me smile! I paired him with some of the Island Oasis Designer paper, added lots of layers, and stitched all around them.  I enjoyed putting this card together, it was fun and relaxing to just play around with different things!

This next card I used all new items from the catalog - soooo lovin' the new colors, papers, and ribbons!  The stamp set is called Friends Never Fade and I just love it!  I used the new Daffodil Delight card stock - what a fun,summery yellow! And, I broke out the new In-Color card stock called Pear Pizzazz, which is a beautiful green!  And, I was excited to play with an old favorite in Tangerine Tango! The designer paper is called Greenhouse Gala and is so pretty I did not want to cut into it, LOL! But, I made myself so I could show it to you here! And, check out that cool, thin ribbon - just really adds to the card!!  I love how this card turned out and will have to remember this color combo - it speaks to me, heehee!!! I hope you like my summery cards, I sure had fun making them! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit, I just love when you do! Now, I am off to blurf for awhile and then to the gym I go - I need to work off the weekend festivities *wink*  Have a wonderful day!
