*Hot fun in the summertime ......"

"Hi Hi Hi Hi there
Them summer days, those summer days ..." ;)

It's almost summer here ~ a few more days and my girls will be out of school for the summer!   Little brother has already been home this week and we are both counting the days, hours, minutes ..... I love having my *babies* home for the summer!

This month, the uber fabulously talented Lorie was our hostess for the S.O.T.C. swap and her theme was "Think Summer!"  As soon as I saw the Kraftin' Kimmie release, I knew I had to get my hands on Florence!  As soon as it arrived in my mailbox, I had the envie open and my nose pressed against that fresh rubbah!  LOL!  (we crafters have some quirks, eh?!)  Nothin' like the sweet smell of brand new rubber stamps! :)

I really wanted a sunset - aka Miami look to the cards, so as soon as I spied this new S.E.I paper at my {now closed} :( LSS, I scooped it up.  It has such interesting texture and color to it.  Each card is respectively different though, and there is an inside sentiment with "Have a sizzling Summer!" 

TFL and stop back in on Saturday for the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog Hop! :)
