Saturday Hot Days of Summer

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is "Hot Days of Summer." When I think about hot summer days, it immediately makes me want to beat the heat by resting in the shade with a cool refreshing beverage. I don't tolerate heat very well!
So today's card is just my idea of a perfect hot summer day - sitting in the shade with a gentle breeze blowing, watching the sun set over the ocean, and a cold glass of Sangria nearby! But, since I'm landlocked now, I'll just have to dream about it. 😉
The Sending Sunshine stamp set sure made it easy to recreate my fantasy, though! I borrowed the greeting from Timeless Tropical and the adult beverage from Nothing's Better Than stamp sets.
That's my share for today. Now click the Next button to jump to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner made!

  1. I love your card!! This is the best interpretation of the stamp set that I've seen so far! Unfortunately, it's not Pinable because only the Create w/Connie & Mary icon shows up, instead of your card.

    1. Karen, try hovering your cursor over the image you want to pin. There should be a little Pinterest icon that appears on the upper left side. You can click that and save!

  2. This is a really nice card! I love how you cropped the strip on the circle. Thanks for sharing. :)
