Let's start with me saying that you might want to read the title of this post twice, because I don't exactly enjoy the paint-peeling heat of summers in Austin. However, I am actually growing weary of the cold these past few weeks. I have completely given up on the mystical day or two that we call "spring" around these parts. It seems to me that you will see tulips poke their little heads up on a Monday, and by Friday they are either frozen to death or have wilted under the scorching summer sun. Spring in Austin is like an alien sighting, you probably have heard someone say that they have seen it, but they are few and far between, and you never really trust them about it.
So, for me to say that I am ready for summer should give you an indication that we really do need some relief around here. And rain. We can always use more rain.
To put myself in more of a summer mood I took the sketch this week from Stamping Challenges and made it bright and sunny. Take a look:
Stamps: Papillion Potpourri, Itty Bitty Banners
Card Stock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Bitty Banners Framelits (with Big Shot), Brights Designer Buttons, Linen Thread
I love how the buttons look like LifeSavers candy across the card! And the colors are so bright and happy that they make me feel like summer is just around the corner. (Because, remember, this is Texas...so it is.) I don't want any of you to be surprised is next week I am writing to you all saying how hot it is already, or hoping that my air conditioner can keep up. And, I hope that you if live in Central Texas that we all get to enjoy a few days of spring before the scorching sun comes down on us. So get outside, take some bluebonnet pictures, and then stamp something happy for a friend. You won't regret it!
Until next time, Happy Stamping!
