New SSS Goodies!

Hi there!

I hope you are all having a wonderful, long, holiday weekend! I've got the day off from work and wanted to quickly share a card with you before heading outside. It's a gorgeous day - sunny, with temps climbing near 80 degrees - finally!!! They actually said on the local news that if we hit 80 degrees today, it will be the first time in 7 1/2 months!

Recently, Simon Says Stamp shared a fabulous new release and I couldn't resist grabbing some of their new goodies! They arrived in the mail yesterday and I played a bit this morning.

I am in love with the new Gingham stencil! So fun to play with! I added the color using Distress Inks. The flowers are from the Favorite Flowers set, which was included in their June card kit. (I just bought the stamp set.) I love how cute and whimsical they are!

And don't ya love that sentiment? It's one of many in a fabulous clear set called, Friendship Messages.

That's it for me. I'm heading outdoors to finally plant some flowers in my pots and mow the lawn - (so much better than shoveling snow!)

I hope you have a fun weekend! I plan on enjoying mine but am also remembering why we celebrate Memorial Day. I am so grateful to all those who have served in our Armed Forces and gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe. I'm remembering them this weekend, and thinking about their families too.
