Summer Nights

Standard

I love a good Kansas Summer evening… that comes complete with the magical presence of FIREFLIES  I just LOVE them.  It’s so pretty to look out across the yard and see the little bits of glowing floating around in the trees.  So, when this Jar of Love stamp set came out I KNEW IMMEDIATELY it was going to have to be in my calendar.  And that it had to be for JUNE.

So, the colors in this month are very simple.  The pink is the flirty flamingo.  I used Sahara Sand to stamp the jar, handle, and fireflies. (A tiny bit of masking with a post-it to make the bow not be too big for the jar neck).  And, then I colored the fly behinds with the daffodil marker and added a smudge of wink of stella (Stella doesn’t like it’s picture taken apparently…so hard to get it to show up on photographs…)

Now I can have my fireflies in Hawaii…

Go see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!

BOYS’ DAY!

Standard

 

As I mentioned in March, Hawaii has a tradition of celebrating Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day.  Well, March was for the girls.  And MAY is for the boys!  May 5 to be exact.  And, the tradition is to fly a flag off the porch that has the carp on it.  One for each male member in the family.  So…  

Here is our BOYS’ Day FLAG!  (I technically need 3 flags for my family, but we have to pretend here).  This cute little fish comes from the Jar of Love stamp set.    (A set that has SO MANY possibilities.  You most definitely need it).

Go see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!!
