Good Morning!  I hope everyone in the States had a safe and fun holiday weekend.  It is really hot and humid here, which I don't love, but other than that mine was great.  We need more 3 day weekends!

Today's challenge with Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is appropriate with the weather here.  The theme is Summer!!!  I had bought this Motivet stamp last year and I thought it was perfect for this challenge. 

Join the fun!  Pull out those summer stamps and create!  If you are like me, staying in to make cards is perfect for this weather.
