Here Comes Summer!

Woo hoo! A new mini catalog is in effect, and although I'm always sad to say goodbye to my favorites when a change occurs, it's such fun to have new things from which to choose. This edition (see side bar at left) has a great set of tropical themed papers (Island Oasis) and stamps (Tropical Party).

This card is the result of a "shoebox swap" among demonstrators (thanks, Deloris!). If you've never participated in one of these, it's a great way to organize a playdate with friends. Each person prepares a card to be the sample, and cuts enough pieces for all the others in the group to make the same card. You put the necessary materials, including inks, punches, ribbon, or whatever you need into a shoebox or basket. When you get together you take turns explaining to everyone what they need to know in order to make your card. In this way everyone ends up with a great variety but you've only had to prepare for one card!

So get your hammock out, pour yourself a nice tall glass of iced tea, grab your mini catalog and dream up a playdate for your friends. This is the life you have. Take time to enjoy it! Kathy
