Treat Yourself! FMS285





I am back from Florida just in time to sneak this card into the FMS gallery!  I'll be putting a gift card in it for an upcoming birthday in May.  In the meantime it is time to get back into the routine. My suitcase is still sitting in the upstairs hall - not unpacked yet!  Think I am still in beach mode......not a bad mode to be in.....soooo relaxing.......








My talented friend Amy has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Fusion - Musical Butterfly





Took a bit of a break so I could enjoy this view in Cocoa Beach.  It was great to get away from a damp cold spring up north.  Going south the week after spring break is the best - no crowds and lots of sunshine!





So I was inspired to go all out summer on my card for Fusion....lots of bright distress oxide ink colors and a diecut proclaiming Summer!  Hope you join us!

Paper:  Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum
Ink:  Distress Oxide, Lemon Lime Twist, Sweet Sugarplum, Versamark

Sending Prayers....FMS284






I am thinking about sunshine today so my flowers had to be yellow!  We are headed south for a few days to enjoy the Florida sun!  I am hoping by the time we get back next week things will be turning green.  We had Easter dinner at our favorite restaurant on the lake and this was our view after a sudden downpour.  Beautiful rainbow but no leaves in sight!








My inkmaster friend Karren has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you play along!

Stamp Review Crew: Cool Treats








The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Cool Treats this week.  It has been a beautiful Easter Sunday today - perfect for ice cream treats with sprinkles.  I am a total chocolate sprinkles kind of gal!  My dad was from Holland and Dutch people love their chocolate sprinkles....it's what's for breakfast!  Yep - chocolate sprinkles on toast or on bread and butter - yum!  I would gladly stop in at my grandmother's for breakfast but never for lunch.  She often made snert for lunch which is a thick green pea soup.....shudder.....that's a whole 'nother post......



So enjoy our Cool Treats Hop.....if you are on track you just enjoyed some treats on Yapha's blog.




If you are ready to move on head over to my friend Dawn's blog.  She always has something wonderful in store!
