Wee Memories Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Wee Memories blog hop! If you come here from STEPHANIE, then you're on the right track.

This week our challenge theme is "Summertime" and we are sponsored by There She Goes Stamps. They offer a very generous prize ($25 gift certificate), so I  hope you all will join and play along.

Back when I was still a kid, living in Indonesia, I thought summer in the States means doing plenty of outdoorsy stuff. Now, that I live in Texas where it's crazy hot, where you can't even touch the steering wheel of your car and have to hold it two fingers (imagine like when you pick up icky stuff), summertime means hiding indoors.

For my card, I decided to go with what I imagine summer in places like Portland or Seattle, where you can actually still do gardening outside even in the summer. And what would a garden be without a gnome, right?  I used There She Goes Stamps set called My Little Friend. 



BTW, have you got Paper Crafts Stamp It! Cards issue? My favorite issue! So many fun ideas and inspirations in here. In fact, when I was looking for idea for today's card, I was inspired by Chan Vuong's CAS design from page 98. And with all the stamping in  this card, I am entering this card for Moxie Fab World Stamp It! Cards challenge.

I also have a card published in this issue as well. Let me share the card here, so my mom and my siblings in Jakarta, can see it, too. Hi, Mom. :)


Well, that's it for today. I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July weekend! From here, please hop on over to WENDY for more eye candy. Thank you all so much for stopping by.
