Stamp Review Crew: Lemon Zest











The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Lemon Zest this week.  It is a sweet, tart and summery fun kind of set!  I altered the sentiment a bit - left out the word "it" so I could put Happy Birthday on the inside.  I just put a small piece of a post-it note over "it" when I inked the sentiment and then peeled it off before I stamped.  I have been know to do some surgical cutting of sentiments at times but I prefer to use a post-it note when I can!






If you are on track you just saw Bronwyn Eastley's fabulous work - head back there if you missed it!






Otherwise head onward to my friend Heidi Baks' blog to see what treats she has in store!





I used the sketch from Fab Friday for my design.

Birthday Marquee......FMS345





The Broadway Suite is such fun - love the glitz and glam!  We have a Broadway Baby among us these days.  Miss E loves her dance classes and actually did three routines in this year's recital based on the movie Rio - lots of fun dances!  




And lots of little monkeys in Rio......







I like when things are slightly askew so when I saw Jen Mitchell's cute sketch I smiled.....and added a bit more askew-ness to my design!  Join us at Freshly Made Sketches!


                                    

I'm also adding this card in at The Paper Players - it's their 400th challenge this week!

Love You To Pieces!





It has been a busy Fourth of July week around here but I finally got around to play with some of the new sets I ordered from SU!  This puzzle piece set is adorable!  I love puzzles......jigsaw puzzles, word puzzles, crossword puzzles, Words with Friends, Scrabble.....as long as letters are involved I'm good.  But math puzzles?  Number puzzles? Sudoku?  Yikes ........ not so good!  




Such a fun sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch this week!

Fusion: Cactus Door





A week of temperatures in the 90's is very rare around here and yet it happened this week!  Wow it has been hot with a couple more days to go.  Polar bears like us struggle with such heat~!  Good things the plants on my card love those high temps!

And yet somehow these kiddos managed to have the energy for a sack race!  Oh to be five again!  Don't you love the flying hair?  









I used both the sketch and the photo this week as inspiration at Fusion!  Join us!
