Hope Everything Looks Up Soon

Hi All,

Happy weekend!  I have a cute summery card to share with you today.  I had seen this card by Debbie Olson on Pinterest and fell in love with the kites.  I knew then and there I had to have the Send Me Soaring stamp set.

This set has all the fixin's of a good kite: 6 different kite designs, a kite tail, kite string and some clouds.  My favorite part...the addition of the Baker's Twine.  It makes the perfect kite tails. I attached it to the back of the kites with adhesive and used Crystal Effects to hold the tails in place.  It dries clear, so you can't even see it.

I chose the 'Hope Everything Looks Up Soon' sentiment for my card.  I made a couple of these for those times when my friends need a little pick me up.  I've already given one away to a co-worker that needed a little cheer brought to her cubicle.  It got me a great big hug in return.

Since summer is on its way, kites are the perfect addition to your stamp collection.  They are so versatile and can be used for so many occasions.  This set is only available through April 30th.  If you are interested in purchasing it, just send me an email or click on the Order Stampin Up icon in the top right hand corner.

Thanks for stopping by!
