The Wacky Watercooler August Blog Hop


Welcome!  It's good to have you stop by on your way around the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop.  If you came here from Stephanie Pletscher's blog, didn't she have some great projects?  Are you enjoying your chance to see a sneak peak at the 2014 Holiday Catalog?  You'll be able to order from the new catalog come August 28th.  You are going to love it all!

For my first card, I went with a summer theme.  School has started here and summer is winding down.  It won't be long and the leaves will be changing and the weatherman is going to start talking about snow.  I thought some pretty flowers would remind us that summer is not over and we still have time to enjoy the pretty flowers.

Now it's on to showing you some of what's in that new Holiday Catalog.  This card is a very clean and simple design using the new Christmas Bliss Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I love those cute little trees!

  3. Love that you did a flower card too! It is hard this time of year to be thinking Christmas - but it's not that far away.

  6. Thanks for being part of our Blog Hop, Marsha. Speak for yourself about summer not being over. It's supposed to go down to 39 degrees Fahrenheit tonight. AND I had to wear a coat today. *sigh* But I'll take your summer flowers to heart and wish for warmer weather. How did I not see the Christmas Bliss set in the catalogue? Love the simplicity of the card. And, of course, love the cardinal.

    1. Thanks, Heidi. Given we are having 90+ degree temps, I was wishful thinking cooler weather. It's like living in the Tropics here at the moment. Christmas Bliss isn't in the Holiday Catalog but I sure wish it was so it would be easier to find. :-)
