Playing in the Sprinkler


There's just something precious about silhouettes isn't there?  And with the amazing popularity of our Kids Play stamp set we thought we'd do something for Summer with some wonderful kids images in great silhouette style in this new set Sweet Days of Summer.  I just LOVE it!


This is my kids in the summer.  Having a riot being chased by the sprinkler, and as a bonus, one of their favourite things to do is to put it under the trampoline, put their swimsuits on and jump!  The water makes the trampoline even bouncier :)  

I paired the image that was stamped in Ranger Distress Stormy Sky ink with some fun older Webster's pages, cutting it out with the Lacey Circles Nestabilities, sponging it a little, then I've added a great big bow in Silk and accented it with some fun buttons and some twine.  The card is 5 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 in size.    This was a sketch from Iwona (Chupa) a few weeks ago.  So now you can head on out....you'll see lots of great stuff with the Design Team today too... AND a number of them will be showing off the fantastic new 123 Kit called Trendsetter.  

There's one last Mystery Blogger again today, and your comment on that Mystery Blogger could win you this set!   Hasn't this been a GREAT release?  

Tomorrow all the winners will be announced on the Winner Circle post at Noon Central on the Flourishes Blog.  So you still have time to enter the Daily Challenges or Pre-Release Challenge...

Really cute! I love the pop of the green buttons! My sister and I used to set the sprinkler underneath the badminton net and play. It was a definite advantage or disadvantage based on where it was sprinkling!

I love the cards and the stamp set, but I must apologize and ask what I am missing? I go to the stamp set, but I don't see either of the images that are used on the cards. Please direct me as I'd love to order the stamp set, but I adore the girl reading under the tree, but I don't see the stamp.
