And now for my project....
Hello Sunshine!!!
How many of us are about ready to be laying out under that bright, beautiful, HOT sun?!?!
Well, Tara has created the perfect stamp set for all these longed for Summer days with her set 
I used the Cricut Pack Your Bags cartridge for the super fun image and sun 
(popped them up on some foam tape - of course).  
The cloud embossing folder is from Darice (JoAnn's), my twine is from American Crafts, and 
my paper is from American Crafts and Basic Gray.
If you can't tell by this card - I am so ready for Summer!!!

Next up on the HOP is the amazing Lori.
