Happy First Day of Summer!!

Good Morning! and Happy Summer Solstice!!! It actually feels like summer lately, something I'm so thankful for.  We haven't had the nicest, warmest spring so I'm truly enjoying this rash of heat and beautiful sunshine this past while.  

In honour of Summer Solstice (not really, it just kind of worked out this way, but hey we'll go with it, right? :) I've created a card using the Island Floral dsp and the Island Floral die for the Big Shot. I love this whole combination, but then I love anything that uses the Big Shot.  My favourite stamping toy ever!  Even my husband thinks its kind of neat and he really doesn't take much interest in my stamping or supplies.  He's a detailed, black and white kind of guy and I'm a creative, not follow the directions and back track later kind of gal so we're perfect for each other!! Although I think he's surprising himself with his creative detail in photography, so I guess we all learn as we go. I don't think I'll ever have his gift for detail though, (its too boring!! haha!)
Thanks for dropping by and have a great Monday!!

Recipe:
Stamp Set: Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Island Oasis, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Accessories: Island Floral Die, brad from my stash, circle punches, scalloped punch, Tempting Turquoise grosgrain, Word Window Punch, Swiss Dots embossing folder
