Blog Hop: Summer!

This month's theme is Summer! I have been spending a lot of time outside gardening. I have both a vegetable and flower garden that I am working on which makes my hands constantly very dirty. I don't like to wear gloves. Meanwhile, stamping has been put aside and I have been falling behind.

Today I confined myself to the stamp room and created this first card for one of my Cards in the Mail swaps. Check out that bee!! I cut the body from the Designer Series Paper and glued a bow to the back to create the wings and antennae. I cranked out a bunch of these and even got most of them dropped off at the Post Office. Even better, the circles were already punched and I used up scraps of Linen Thread and Dimensionals. 

The second item is a Mini Gift Bag that I made to match the card. Yeah, they say the same thing. They're not meant to be given together I just like to color coordinate projects. 

Now let's see what the other bloggers chose to do this month! Hop on over to Julie by clicking below:
