Sending Sunshine

Hello, hello! 

I've got to take a second because Glee was at Nationals last night... the last one for the graduating class... sniff, sniff. I'm still having a hard time imagining this show next year without these core characters. But I tried not to think about that and just enjoy the music. Which was excellent by the way. The whole evening felt like a great throwback to the first season. Not that I'm hating on the new characters that have joined since then but it was a nice full-circle kind of feeling that I really appreciated. Next week is the graduation finale and you know I'll have something to Gleek out about with that too. ;) 

So as I promised yesterday, there is a special mid-month release happening over at All That Scraps and it's a fun filled Sugarplums Beach Kit! We are sneaking peeks today which you can find on the ATS blog and the stamps will be available for purchase tomorrow. But wait... that's not all! If you purchase the Sugarplums Beach Kit from May 17th- May 31st you will get it for 20% off regular price. After the 31st the kit will still be available but the price will go back up to the regular MSRP. The stamps will only be available as a kit and only available at All That Scraps.

For my card I used several of the stamps from the kit to create a hot summer's day scene at the beach. The little kneeling Sugarplum is taking a break from collecting shells to rest beneath her umbrella. Up in the sky a curious seagull is checking things out to make sure he isn't missing out on an opportunity to snag an unguarded snack or two. I really had a blast putting all of these stamps together and once I had them on the paper background I couldn't think of much else to add. So other than adding a small flower to her hair I just let it be. :)

Alrighty, have fun checking out the new stamps and I'll see ya with another Beach Kit card tomorrow!

Amy this is just adorable! I just love how you have colored her and your umbrella. Really really sweet! I so agree about Glee. I sit and try to figure out how their going to join the whole thing together next year. :O( Makes me sad, but like I know she could Tina sure showed what her voice can done. However Finn has come so far it is truly amazing how great he sounded last night. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. lol... I do love me some Glee though! lol... Have a great sunshiny day. Hugs
