holy smokes it hot around here!

Where I live, it doesn't *actually* rain year round like most think, however, it's definitely not sunny year round. ;) So when the sun finally makes it's appearance, we all flock to spend every waking minute outside and take it all in!

This leaves indoor activities, (ie: stamping!) put off until sundown. But even at sundown, it's sweltering in my house! omg, i may invest in AC!

never happy are we? ;) on to the hip hop projects! We are focusing on the June KOM today-

I have been making note card sets lately- nice to have a set. Plus, I am that much farther ahead on Christmas gifts should they still be here come December! I covered my cherries with stickles- paper is Early bird from Cosmo, card stock is PRISMS new simply smooth ivory card stock.

I played along with the sketch challenge for this one- The bee is too cute, and I covered him with yellow flower soft. Makes him fuzzy like he should be. The paper is basic grey's lime rickey, may arts ribbon, & melissa frances buttons.


Here is a close up of the fuzzy thing- love how it turned out! and it's so cheery-
What's your fave image in this kit???

So Sweet AJ! I totally know what you mean about the H O T N E S S factor...I am just North of Sea Town..and it is a little scary to see what the rest of the summer holds if we are in the NINETIES in June! As for the new kit...CAN NOT wait to get my hands on that :) I love the Cherry stuff...especially that super sweet little border! Too fun! TFS!!

Love the cherry notecards! My favourite is the ladybug trail. I'm such a sucker for ladybugs. I just can't help it! Great use of flower soft on the bee.

i really like the bee and the owl and the teapot. i think what i like most is the huge variety of stuff that i seen in several unity kits and wanted but not wanted cause i am like i only want one stamp out of the kit. so i am getting a little bit of several unity kits in one kit. love your card i have a bee from little buggers might try him on the card sketch.

Heidi said...

Love how the bee card came out. That BG paper looks so good on there. You've given me yet another reason to get me some of that flower soft! I love all the images in this month's kit (can't wait to get my hands on it!) but I think my favs have to be the pear tree (anything with pears is awesome), the owl, and the cherry. I've yet to see someone do a sample with the cherry border. Can't wait to try that one, too.

Yvette said...

Love your cards! They are all sooo cute!!! If I had to pick just 1 favorite stamp in this kit it would be... *thinking*... gosh sooo hard... it would be a toss up between the ice cream cone and the cherries! Love them both!! But then again I LOVE ALL the stamps in the June KOM! :)
