I know it's only Spring, but it's hot here in Virginia (90s!), and I can't help but think ahead to summer. This one kinda, sorta fits with this week's SCS sketch challenge, which, so cool for Jen, came from one of her SFYTTs a while back (I thought it looked familiar). The watermelon and the sentiment are by H&M Stamps. Once again, I paired the Swiss Dots cuttlebug and Stampin' Up's Stitched background -- I just can't help myself!

Lady Liberty on this second card is also from H&M Stamps. She's such a sweet little thing! I stamped her on watercolor paper and colored her with reinkers.

A quick end note: I've realized recently I have too much on my plate (actually I've realized I have a small plate, lol!), so I've decided to cut back on design team responsibilities. It was with great sadness that I resigned from the H&M Stamps DT yesterday. But even though these are, for now, the last offical DT samples from me, I'm sure I'll still post fun H&M Stamps projects from the loyal customer role! I'm so grateful to Heather for the design team opportunity - I truly enjoyed my time at H&M Stamps! Best wishes for continued success to you, Heather!
