The summer is progressing and I am enjoying the sunshine with my family.
I am also enjoying playing with my stamps and inks and paper! So I created a lovely little notecard today to share with you. My inspiration was the card I made for the bloghop this past Saturday. I used the same color combination too!

There are so many ways to use the stamps in the Stampin' Up! set, Falling Flowers (which, by the way, also has a matching die set - way cool!). Today I only made use of one stamp in the set and then I complimented it with a greeting from my favourite Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (I love my wood mount stamps, I can't deny it - but luckily you can also get this set in the clear mount version The butterfly was die cut from the Bold Butterflies framelit set and attached with my multipurpose glue.
