Summer Cards #2 - The Mint Set

Well, I finished a set of four cards last weekend that I call the "mint set".  My life is usually very busy anyway and the idea of starting a blog in the summer probably wasn't one of my brightest ideas because I thought I'd blog at least "weekly" but now that it's almost July 23 (I realized the last blog was one month ago!)  It's been a fun filled summer though that is for sure, despite still working so much and only being weekend warriors we've been camping several nights and have managed to eat out many times for dinner and take in a couple movies and a couple trips to the pool!  I'm really hoping for at least one more trip to the pool!  It's my favorite place!  If we lived by an ocean I'd be there at least once a day!!!  Well I still need to stamp the envelopes for my cards and then I'll post the final pic.  I just thought I'd take a few minutes and at least get the blog up so I'm within the "once a month" range.

Summer Sherbert Cards Completed

My plan was to start my new blog at the first of June... well it's mid June now and I know I just have to dive in and get going with my blogs and short term projects.  So tonight's plan is in progress - new blog and working on a quick set of cards. I'm focusing on the colors of sherbet ice cream.  My first set is orange. I just got the Framework Alphabet stamp set from Close To My Heart, this is a set I've been wanting for quite sometime.  I have some fun ideas for this set.  I plan on coloring in the space with dots, lines, hearts, etc.  I'm using some older scraps of paper that have been sitting around for a very long time and challenging myself to keep it simple!  I can get stuck easily on details.  I'll try to remember to add some pictures at the end of the project.  After the orange, I'll do some pink, yellow and green - I think that's all of the sherbet colors right?  Hmmm, I better go buy some sherbet now! I could go for a treat tonight.  Happy Summer, Happy Creating.
