summer soda pop card

ack! Where does the time go!? Has it really been two weeks since my last post?? I assure you it is not for the lack of ideas and projects to share - it has been simply just a lack of time. And we have not even hit summer holidays yet here in Edmonton.

At dinner I asked my kids what they were going to do in the summer on the days Mom has to work. My 7 year old said (and I quote) "wait, you don't get summer vacation too???". The reality of being an adult!

I do scale back a bit in the summer. Less classes and events. But I still maintain a steady pace. Keeps the momentum going and I think my customers just miss me too much if we take a break.

I created this card a while back but it just screams summer to me. 

I used Stampin' Write markers directly on the rubber stamp
to ink multiple colors on the soda pop bottle. 

We are just two weeks away from summer vacation. I am looking forward to sleeping in and enjoying some lazy summer days. Hopefully I can juggle keeping the kids entertained and working at my Stampin' business. 

Thanks for visiting! Have a creative day!
