Summer-a-blaze

Standard

August is that time of the year that my head starts to say good-bye to summer. Even though I know it’s still FAR from over, but it’s like the DUSK of the summer months. But, just like actual dusk when the sky is on fire and all of our surroundings are saturated in the golden hue of the dropping sun, I imagine August to be that time. Everything is on fire with color.

I have seen a lot of samples of this set, Beautiful Friendship, done with more muted tones. And, don’t get me wrong, they are gorgeous. But, I love the bold colors. Seems appropriate for the beginning of the end of summer. As I write this, we are on day 2 of a very unusual school year. There are so many unknowns as to how things are going to work. But, I’m thankful for this hobby, this space, and audience to be the space that I can come back to for the beauty and the rest at the end of each day and season.

I used mango medley, granny apple green, and poppy parade to be the colors this month. I love this mix…not too loud but definitely they will be noticed. Check out what Anne and Cheryl have for you this month!

Summertime Lemonade!

Standard

And just like that it is already July…  I feel like summer is FLYING BY.  But one of my favorite things about summer is LEMONADE!  I am super fortunate to have an amazing lemon tree in my back yard and it gives the BEST juicing lemons. And I love to make up a pitcher of fresh lemonade!  My kids love to help as well!

This Lemon Zest stamp set (now  retired) brings  to  mind all the tastes and smells of summer when I see it!

 

I used daffodil delight, lemon lime twist and flirty flamingo to make the lemons!  This one is super easy… stamp and go!

Hope you are having a fabulous summer!  Hop on over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you this month!
