Summer's over! Or is it?...

Kind of strange how this weekend feels more like summer than any other the past two months? LOL! Took the family to the Shelter Valley Folk Festival on Saturday (had a blast! the kids were WIPED OUT - and me, too! LOL), spent some time in my garden yesterday "putting it to bed" and yanking cartloads of weeds (ugh). I wanted to take the kids to the beach or to the local splash pad (which is by the beach) but do you think I could convince them to go outside?!? I just don't get it. So I stamped a card instead :o) It's for this week's Featured Stamper challenge. Very simple, one layer card, but it's its simplicity that I loved!
It features the Garden Whimsy stamp set, and it's inked in Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss, but since I don't have my first order yet from the new catalogue, and therefore no new In Colour ribbon, I had to make do with red gingham. Niki's original card uses a nice red satin ribbon and a wonderful Papertrey Ink stamp set that I am seriously coveting at the moment (I am a sucker for florals :o) ) But since I have a huge order of new stamps coming TOMORROW, I will be a good girl and wait...
Happy Stampin'!
