It's the LAD Monthly Mix Member's Blog Hop!

Hello all! Today we will be showcasing cards from our Monthly Mix Members as well as Lizzie Anne's DT members....this blog hop will include a variety of stamps from any Monthly Mix from doesn't necessarily have to be a holiday card either......let's start off with my card:

Dreaming of Summer

If you knew me, it would be no surprise that I chose the wonderfully fun loving August Monthly Mix! Why? Because of all the seasons of the year, I absolutely LOVE SUMMER! Summer is my favorite for so many reasons and just the warmth that I enjoy is priceless! If I could control the seasons I would always make it 78 degrees outside with a light breeze....perfect for donning shorts, a light t-shirt, and flip flops!!

And that's what makes the August Monthly Mix so fun - it contains whimsical images of a darling tree, a rainbow, cupcakes, two brilliant sunshine images, a stylish purse, a butterfly, a yummy peach, and a cute set of bikinis that you see here:

All of these images are so catered to summer, don't you think?

And, ofcourse, I couldn't resist but add on some fun flip flops to the design:

LOVE this Tiffany! It makes me smile and remember how much I loved living in Hawaii, where it is nearly always 78 and balmy! Even here in Florida today it is rainy and in the 50's. Dark and dreary, so your card was a welcome ray of sunshine!
