Taste of Summer Note Card

I am so very grateful for the beginning of summer!  There is nothing like green grass, leaves on trees, birds singing, and flowers blooming.  So I nestled today's cards in my geranium.


I used the Vine Embossing Folder on the purple sheet in Taste of Summer.  I sanded it off a bit to give it that little bit of distressed look.  That bunch of lemons is so summery that I just had to add a butterfly, too!  My inspiration for this card came from Lisa at Sketch-n-Scrap.  

You have until May 31st to order your Taste of Summer paper (just $8.95 for 12 sheets!) and stamp set.  I am so glad that I have this set in my collection!  It's just plain fun!

I can't leave without showing you the planter that Shane made me for my birthday.  On Mother's Day, he went to the greenhouse with me and then planted it for me.  He painted all the pots and then stenciled flowers on a couple of them.  What a great kid!  


Thanks so much for stopping in today for my "taste of summer"!!

Beautiful card! What a great idea to emboss that background paper. The color combo is fun and as always, your signature cluster is perfect! There's no doubt about where Shane got his creative talent .... it's wonderful to see how he's sharing it with you! Love that planter!
