Easy, Breezy Summer Days with Stampendous!

Okay...ummm...so....WOW!!! I was absolutely THRILLED and super excited to see the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Top 5 announced early this morning! I cannot thank you all enough for your amazing support! This is it, folks! The last round! On Monday I will show you my final card for the competition and ask for your votes this one last time! I am still in shock that my name is up there! This is all because of each and every one of you and I simply cannot thank you all to the extent to which it is deserved! You are amazing! Thank you! I am beyond honored at this point!


Well, here in New England it's been quite SUMMERY the last few days. If, of course, by 'summery' you mean a million gagillion degrees outside and hazy and humid! Yup! I kinda love it! Nope. I'm not even being sarcastic on that one! LOL! I love warm weather. Even 90+ degree hot weather with lots and lots 'o humidity. I just would rather be warm than cold any day! Actually, my A.C. doesn't work in my car right now and I drive a fifty mile commute and I've even been handling THAT like a charm!

So..what does this have to do with anything, well, the Stampendous! Challenge this month is all about SUMMER! We want to see your spectacular summer creations! AND...if you link up your creation, you could win some spectacular Stampendous! goodness! *sigh* I {heart} spectacular Stampendous! goodness. Just say'n.

Hanging Bird Cage Hello


*Sigh* Easy, Breezy, summer days! That's how this card makes me feel! YAY! Less 95 degrees and humid, more 75-80, clear, and dry! Oh, how I love days like that!

I used the Frilly Bird Cage stamp along with the vines from the Encouraging Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. The cages are embossed in white and a pretty teal embossing enamel. I did the vines with the wonderful Crystal Embossing enamel. I LOVE how it shimmers! To finish the card off, I stamped the simple sentiment from the Happy Messages set! YAY!

Hello Birdcages (detail)


Well, I will be spending the day preparing to be a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding this afternoon. Yup...long, formal gown in purple...'cause that's what brides do to people! LOL! And...the good news is...It's only supposed to be 90ish or so today, and, I'm not sure, but I'm fairly confident that the church is not air conditioned. Awesome. LOL! The good news is that I lover both of them to death and I'm wicked excited for them AND the reception is gonna ROCK!!! We are going to have so much fun! YAY for friends getting married!!!! Okay...see you all later....

...Jingle Out!
