High tide or low tide...

TGIF my friends!

Well here we are at the third and final day of July previews for The Greeting Farm and we are wrapping things up with the Mega Mini Summer set. This stamp set includes six darling kiddos ready to beat the heat during these hot summer days as well as a beach sign, sailboat, butterfly, slice of watermelon and three sentiments. Once again I found myself quite inspired by all of the different card making possibilities within this set that I actually made four cards (the rest of which can be found over on the TGF blog today). The one I chose to share here first is a personal favorite. I always love what I do and am happy with the cards I create but every once in a while I finish putting one together and it just stands out in a special way. Something about this sweet gal had me taking her to the beach and I was able to use the sign and sailboat stamps from the set to help me do just that. I love how it looks like she arrived bright and early, just as the sun is coming up. Perhaps she wanted to watch the sailing regatta or maybe she just wanted to claim a prime spot in the sand. Either way there is a peaceful mood to this card that I really respond to. :)

Alrighty, you know what to do... head on over to the TGF blog for even more Mega Mini Summer fun from myself and my fellow Farmers. And don't forget that the entire release will be available for purchase on Sunday as well as a chance to win all four of the July stamp sets by participating in the blog hop!
