3M - You bring color to my life ♥

Hello friends!

 Today is the last day of school 
and then it will be officially SUMMER! ♥
The kids are excited and I confess, so am I :)
 My last 'baby' graduated elementary school yesterday -
hard to believe this young man is off to middle school.

 And I'm reallllly excited to have the kids home for summer,
even if they will be mostly dashing in and out.
I'm totes planning on catching up on sleep, cards, and not driving all day! :)
It's also the 9th of the month,
 the day the 3 Musketeers post our cards.
Jeanette was our hostess for this round
and sent us this darling Painter Meg from Stamping Bella.
I've seen it around in blogland before 
and it was just as every bit delightful to color is in person.

  Painter Meg is just adorable!
I paired it with summery bright papers,
and added the matching stamp sentiment to the inside of the card ↓


What a beautiful saying ♥
Barb and Jeanette have also made a card with this image ~
be sure to stop on by and see what they've made, too!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
