I have only three days of full-time work left before summer break!!! (then working part-time during the month of June, and all of July off). I am sooooo ready to start stamping again! I dabbled a bit last weekend, and as expected, things didn't flow as naturally as they usually do. I'm certain that with practice this summer, I'll be back to my old stampin' self!

Here's my simple little card from last weekend using Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #118 and PPA Color Challenge #92 of Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, and Poppy Parade. I've had these gorgeous colors since they first came out last summer, and this is the first time I've used them .... just in time for new In Colors to come out!

How fortunate for you that this year these previous in colors won't go away but instead be joined by five more for the next year. Enjoy!
