Ok, so anyone who knows me or has been to my house knows how much I love my flower pots on my front & back patios in the spring & summer. They just make me smile.
When I saw this card I just new it was going to become my next CASE. It reminds me of me. :) Thanks again to Ilina Crouse (www.ilinacrouse.blogspot.com) for the inspiration.
Don't forget to check out the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini for this set and a whole lot more. If you need a copy and you are in the Caldwell or Nampa area, let me know and I can bring one to you.
Thanks for letting me share.


Tropical Party Card Share

This bright & cheerful card is one that I CASEd from a fellow stamper, Ilina Crouse, who's cards I adore(http://www.ilinacrouse.blogspot.com/) It uses the set "Tropical Party" and the "Island Oasis" DSP from the Summer Mini. I hope you enjoy!!

I recently had a friend in need. She was stuck out of town for medical reasons, but needed to have a swap made & ready to send within days of returning home. She asked for my help in designing a swap using the set "July Fourth" from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini. Nothing like a little pressure to help me perform. After searching for a layout idea, this is what I came up with. I am sorry to say that I do not remember who's layout I based it off of. If it is yours, please let me know so that I can give credit where it is deserved.
I am very happy with the way that it turned out. I think that it screams "July Fourth" and the patriotic colors remind me of where I live.
You can find this set & many more new sets in the Summer Mini catalog. Contact me for your copy or click on the catalog link to the right.

The Summer Mini is full of new products, inspiration, and tips. I am sure that you are bound to find something to your liking.

If you don't have a copy of this mini yet you can click on the catalog image or let me know and I can get one to you.

You'll find a lot of new offerings in this mini including the introduction of a new tool called the builder wheel. Where you can customize your wheel any way you'd like. See page 8 in the mini for details. They are also offering new Smooch Spritz™ sprays. These sprays easily and quickly add pizazz to your projects. And don't let me forget to mention all the great new stamp sets available in both wood & clear mount.
