Summertime Wishes

Hello, Happy Tuesday! The weather has been perfect here in New England the past two days. It is warm and sunny with low humidity so we haven't had to turn on the AC and it has been wonderful to be outside. I am hoping to work out in the gardens today and tomorrow. I hope after all the horrid weather that has happened the last couple of weeks I'm wishing Mother Nature is quiet for quite a while.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we have a great challenge. We would like you to use something new that you have purchased in the last 2 months and tell us what it is. I have used a mixture of very old and very new on this card I created. My new is this Mo image, I have wanted it for a while but just couldn't justify buying it until about a month ago. Do you see the glittered aqua and blue glittered polka dot DP, I had to buy that a couple weeks ago at one of our LSS stores, I bought every color they had (I love using polka dots!). My last "NEW" item is the the leaf flourish die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I bought it at the last stamp convention I went to in June. We would love to see what "NEW" treasures you have so come play with us this week. Be sure to check out what the other ladies have created this week they are fabulous!
