July Papertrey!
Thank you...

In Bloom...

Summer's in full bloom, isn't it?  We've had such beautiful weather here...lots of sunshine and plentiful rain, so the flowers and crops are so lush.  It's been a beautiful summer...many days almost too cool to go to the pool....in the upper 70's and low 80's.  My idea of perfect weather. 

Well, first off, a bit of news that you can read here.  It's been hard keeping it a secret for so long, and it feels weird to be able to finally share the news!  But there it is! 

And speaking of things being in bloom...it's Papertrey release time, so of course another Papertrey project today using what is probably my favorite set from this month...In Bloom.  Perfect for coloring.  Or not.  Either way, those flowers are SO pretty. 


I created a set of 4 cards in a tin and added lots of ribbon and buttons...my fav. 


I stamped that pretty flower right on the clear lid with white Staz On ink...


The card designs are all the same, just varied colors and sentiments...love how easy that makes it to put a set together.
