Only Summer Kisses



Good morning everyone!!! What a wonderful day....the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I'm stampin away ...can't get any better than this!!! I am out of M&M's so that did put a little kink in the creative process but I will fix that problem real soon!!! Anyway...

The color challenge on Splitcoast this morning was to use Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, and Only Orange. What happy, bright colors...perfect to get your day started right!!! I bought these adorable Elzybell stamps last year and thought they would be perfect for the challenge colors. The little images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The papers are from Making Memories Just Chillin paper pad and Candy Dots, ribbons, and a flower finish them off. Pretty simple but fun!!!


I wanted to share this picture I took at our Mother's Day celebration last Sunday at mu DD Holly's...6 of my 11 Grandbabies were there!!! They are sooo dear and my heart just swells with love when I'm lucky enough to be with them!!!
Have a GREAT day and I hope you get to do a little stamping, too!!!
