Hello summer...

TGIF my friends!

I actually have today off from work with nothing pressing on the ol' to-do list so I'm feeling as free as a bird, LOL! The days have been creeping back up into the mid 80's and summer is definitely upon us now so I'm thinking I'll be enjoying some time outdoors. :)

And while it still may be a bit too early for me to go swimming in the lake, little Birgitta here sure looks like she is ready for a dip in the water. I made this card for the CC Designs preview over on the ATS blog earlier this week and I wanted to make sure that I shared it here as well. This new Birgitta is such a great addition to my collection of sweet summer themed stamps and how perfect is that new The Pier paper with her? As soon as I spied that popsicle print I knew I had a winner. The tag with the sentiment also came from one of the 12x12 papers in that collection, which I'm excited to say the ATS store are now carrying as well. I love cutting them up for fun accents and quick, easy sentiments on my cards.

Alrighty, I'm off to see what kind of trouble I can get myself into. ;)
See ya tomorrow when I'll have some princess winners to announce!

What a cutie pie. How perfect that you had some popsicle big paper to match. It almost reached 112° here yesterday. I wish it were in the 80's, lol. Have a fun day.
