Who's Ready for Summer?


I am so psyched that it is Memorial Day weekend ... it has always marked the start of summer for me. As a kid, school would be ending soon and that would mean staying up later, spending more time with family and friends ... and being from Maryland ... crab season ... YUM!! Okay, so it is with these fond memories that I made this card. Love this little Penguin Girl stamp. I got some images through the PIF Image Swap, but then when I saw how adorable she was ... I had to buy her. And for .99, I decided to buy a few extra to give to the Penguin lovers I know. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, full of good food and good times.


I also wanted to share a RAK I got from sf9erfan over at SCS. It was a complete and total surprise. Thanks so much Michelle!! What a nice variety of goodies!! And I learned a little something by admiring the card she sent. Using SU Dimensionals where your brads are located is a great way to make sure they stay adhered properly to the card. I've had trouble in the past with wonky bumps between the layer with the brad and the next layer of the card. And yup ... it worked like a charm on the card I made in this post.

Oh, and for the David Cook fans out there ... here's a link to his Guitar Hero commercial. To me, this is Super Bowl level advertising ... LOVED it.

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I haven't been in a position to post lately so I guess I had a lot to say. *grin*
