Summertime Fun at Clear Dollar Stamps

It's Blog Hop Sunday at Clear Dollar Stamps!!!! Welcome! You should have arrived here from Jan's blog, She's Gone Digital. If not, go back to the beginning at Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp.


I think I gave away the theme of our blog hop with my title, Summertime. And what a wonderful summer it is! As you read this post, I am on my way with the family to the beach for a week!! It doesn't get any better then that!! As for my card, I used Charlie Summer Fun as well as lots and lots of bright summery colors. See, even Charlie needed his sunglasses for these! Anyway, this card sure was a series of unfortunate events, ending in the need to over embellish to hide mistakes. I really should start listening to that little voice in my head when it says "stop, don't do it!"


Remember, there are prizes for two lucky winners, so be sure and leave comments. After my blog, be sure you hop on over to Lorie's blog, Live, Love, Laugh, Create.
