Summer Picnics

Happy Saturday!
It's a beautiful day here. The sun is shining the skies are blue and the snow is MELTING! Music to my ears.
I've had a busy day so far and not a lot of stamping time(yet).
These first two cards I actually made yesterday with some scraps that were left out on the floor. They are rather simple but I like how they turned out. Honestly, I think the new Summer Picnic DP MAKES these cards....

I've gotten one of my regular Saturday blog sketches completed. This one is from Lauren's blog HERE. She had a nice simple sketch posted this morning but no sample. Sometimes it's easier to do a sketch without seeing what others have done.
This card uses MORE of the Summer Picnic DP(are you surprised?) and some of the Love & Happiness Rub Ons. I stamped the flower from So Many Scallops in Bashful Blue and used the Old Olive Marker to colour in the words. A rub on was applied to the center. I then punched it out with the Scallop Punch.
I like how it turned out and this MAY be another choice for my Wednesday Girls Night Out.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I'm off to finally put all my new supplies away!

Looks like summer to me!!!

They are all beautiful cards, such great sentiment stamps, I am sure the girls will all be happy whichever you choose!

Deb said...

Beautiful cards, I so love the sugar bowls.

I would suggest using small clear bags so guests can see the special m&ms through and making folding tops which your friend can staple on after filling the bags. I am sure you have made these before for the children to give as Halloween favors etc but they could work equally well for an adult!

I just LOVE all of the pretty cards you're making with your new stuff, Dawn!! Everything looks FANTASTIC!!

Heidi said...

These are all gorgeous! I just love how you colored the words different. That never seems to work for me. You rock it though! Great cards!
