I've got one last card to say goodbye to summer and it features one of the happiest looking little stamps that I have ever seen. This pool princess is from the Roberto's Rascals Splashies set and the pure joy of her is absolutely infectious. There was no way that I was going to make her sit and wait an entire year before fulfilling her card destiny. I could just picture her enjoying a quick cool down in the back yard with the sun shining above. The sentiment is from a new Mama Elephant set that I got recently and as soon as I saw it sitting on my desk I knew it would pull this whole card together. Her swimsuit is paper pieced from a sheet of Doodlebug Under the Sea paper and this is why I love me some 6x6 paper pads... the shrunk down designs are the scale for adding to stamped characters. All in all, I can't think of a cheerier way to send off the season.  :)

Later gators!
