First Day of Summer here!

Hello Hip HOPPERS...happy Rewind Thursday! Today is the first day of our summer break- and I have a dentist appointment for the 2 kids and I. I know how to live it up right? ;)

Here are a few fun cards I managed to squeeze in during this crazy last week of school...


This card uses the birdie inspiration set- I LOVE this kit, can't put my finger on it- but it's one of my faves! I stamped the birdie and the flourish on the white card stock with lemon tart, and on to the ocean tides with fresh snow. It's not at all colors I would normally use together, but I like how it turned out~

and here is my second card- also using the same set. This sentiment is so fun!! Just love it- Paper is from October Afternoon-

*and* YOU HAVE REACHED the END of our rewind hip hop!!! Leave a comment here for a chance to win Birdie Inspiration!
Pin It Now!
