The way the weather has been around here, I am beginning to think that maybe I will see Flamingos outside my window soon! This summer has been hot, humid and very, very dry. Thankfully, I live on Lake Ontario so we aren’t in danger of having a drought, but the farmers are having a tough time. The grass is all brown and the leaves are starting to fall. On one hand, if you were on vacation this summer, it didn’t really matter what week you picked because every single one was beautiful. Rob is happy because he barely had to mow, but it is getting to the point where we desperately need rain even if it ruins a planned outside day.
Pop of Paradise is a very cute stamp set that comes in rubber (clear or wood mount) and has eight stamps that include a flamingo, a pineapple, a couple of different leaves and some cute sentiments. Flirty Flamingo is the perfect color to use with this stamp set for the flamingo, of course. I stamped off (this is where you ink the stamp and then stamp it once on a scrap paper and then on your cardstock) the leaves so that they would be lighter for the background. Then, of course, I had to add some bling!
