~Eternal Summer~

Oooooh, today is a SCORCHER.

These are the days I'm glad my crafting nook is in the basement.

It balances out those cold winter months when I use a microwave-heated wrap.   ;)

I picked up this stamp set while visiting my family (yup I  snuck out to the nearest craft store and checked out the goods). 

I love the huge lanterns in BoBunny's Serenity stamp set-endless possibilities!

It paired nicely with Flourishes' sentiment from the Hydrangea set~inked in several colors.

I used Staz On ink on vellum for CAS-ual Fridays:CFC57.

There is a bit of glitter and shine in the ribbon, and the gold part of the lantern was colored in with a Uni-ball pen (shiny in person).

Something Shiny

Have a great day~thanks for stopping by and keeping me company. ;)
