Pinterest is always a great place to search for inspiration.

I was, however, just searching the web . . . always looking for pictures.

Perhaps the image to the right may be better suited for summer . . . but it is right around the corner and we do need to get working on our summer projects.

Stampin’ Up!® does have such a chair . . . only it is the front view . . . but I think it would work for your summer cards. I do love the colors on a sandy beach. They seem to be anticipating something . . . Or it is a time of reflection . . .

I do like it and can imagine combining several stamp sets to create a very colorful and creative card that would feed a hungry imagination.

I would think you could be inspired to create several summer cards . . . I’m thinking of summer birthday cards . . . I’m sure I could come up with a dozen or more of them . . . And, remember some would also be appropriate for spring. We have several months of card making ahead of us — May, June, July, August . . . Goodness, I thought there were more . . .

July may be busy with a Christmas in July launch . . . August is Back-to-School . . . then fall . . .

Time does continue to march right along. Once we think we’re caught up, there is always something else.

In June Stampin’ Up!® releases their new Annual Catalog . . . then before we know it the Holiday Catalog will be coming out . . . So, I suggest now is the best time to catch your breath and do a bit of reflection on your paper crafting needs.

I know I have.

Although my revamping of one of my websites has nothing to do with Stampin’ Up!®, it is allowing me to look at 4 years of content. . . Where I’ve been, where I am . . . and perhaps where I’m going . . . Moving forward . . . or settling in . . . finding my comfort zone . . . 

Spring seems to be a time of clearing out debris . . . Summer is more a time of reflection . . . At least this is my view point.

There’s a degree of planning ahead . . . and perhaps completing some unfinished projects.

As well as vacations to get away and think exclusively about having fun and experiencing new things.

I do hope your spring is enjoyable and you’re looking forward to some good times this summer . . . as well as doing some stamping and working on your papercraft projects.


Thanks for stopping by!
