Cutie Kim Hughes has a new stamp set release on Thursday this week. Summer Trees is her set for the month, and being married to a BBQ man, I think it’s darling. OK, honestly, have you ever laid eyes on a KH set that wasn’t darling? I’ll find lots of uses for this one in the coming months. 

I sat down last night and made 3 pretty quick cards with Summer Trees set and my Wild Raspberry K&Company stuff. Small prints perfect for paper piecing and larger prints for backgrounds. So yummy! I found the new collection at Archivers on Saturday, and LOVE the patterned paper. I got some glittered adhesive border strips (hearts here) and cool rhinestones, as well. I’m going to do my best to use it like crazy this week. I hit the sentiment with my clear Spica glitter pen, and it’s much easier to read the sentiment IRL. Don’t be afraid to stamp on your patterned paper.

I have lunch plans with a special friend who is passing thru my neck of the woods today. Very excited about that! Only wish we were going to have time to stamp and chat and giggle the night away like we would when we both lived in Wichita.

I’m also knee deep in PTO stuff this week, and it’s the countdown to year-end.  I can’t believe that summer is just peeking around the corner. I say bring it on! WELCOME SUMMER!

See you tomorrow!
