Sandy & Her Sombrero

Hello there,

I have finally carved out some time to make a few summertime cards with a few of my favorite stamps, some new and some not so new!  The one I am showing today is a stamp set from Stamping Bella called Sandy & Her Sombrero. You can find it at 7 Kids College Fund   These stamps are one of my favorite Co.  I just love the Uptown Girls!!!! I used a favorite color combo yellow and teal with white. Great for summer cards.  Sandy is sippin her margarita and hangin at the beach!  Hmmmm.. I wonder which beach?  Oh, FYI this stamp set is NOT new.  It's from last summer.  Oh well better late than never!  Just wanted to share her! One of my new favorite embelishments and hot trend right now is using sequins.  I adore these from Pretty Pink Posh . The blue one's are Crate Paper. Now go get your summer on!
