Did everyone have a good weekend and 4th of July? It was warm enough around here, that's for sure! We usually go to the local parade, but this year our family drove the couple of hours it takes to get to the Warren Dunes State Park and met with some family friends. We spent the day sitting on the beach and soaking up some sun...fun and relaxing! The kiddos and I walked the mile to get to the mud pit, which was an adventure! I have a suggestion to those who might consider going to the mud pit...wear shoes 'cuz there are lots of stones, rocks, and mud...LOL, you'll thank me! Ouch, OUCH, ouch!!!
Don't you think July been a great month for new releases at TGF? I love all the new images and the new Blush Heart background is no exception...I can definately see it becoming a staple in my paper crafting. This is what the stamp looks like...
...and here is a card that I came up with using the new set.
It's definately not my typical TGF kind of card, but I really do love the way this ended up. I hand stitched across the bottom of the twine with embroidery floss for the body of the butterflies, and paper pierced the swirls. The sentiment if from TGF's Fly Away set which I was able to snatch-up during TGF's Farmer's Market a couple of weeks ago (lucky me!)
If you're looking for more ideas on how to use this stamp, you can go to TGF's gallery and see some of the other projects that have been posted, here's a link to help you find your way!
As always, thanks for stopping by and leaving comments...they're always appreciated!
