Happy 4th of July!
"Blooms for the Summer" and Orchids

Summer is here!

Summer Greetings Everyone!

I know, I know, summer officially starts on June 21st.  But here in San Diego, our June is usually what we call "June Gloom".  Very often, the sun never actually comes out due to things such as "Coastal Eddies" "Fog Banks" and "Offshore Clouds".  It makes the start of summer kind of yukky!

So, I tend to think of 4th of July as the start of summer!  Amazingly, the sun is out early in the morning, temperatures are a comfortable mid 70's, we get nice breezes and flowers are popping out everywhere! 

Today, I got up, did my normal morning routine (no, not exercising!) of taking Musette down to the lookout in her harness, taking my coffee with me and of course peanuts for the squirrels.  It was like a renewed day!  Fresh, bright and oh boy was that coffee deeelicious!!!  When I came in for breakfast, I was determined to make a card with the Daisy Delight Bundle.  I had received the stamp a month or so ago, but the punch was on backorder.  Finally, I received it so had to use it immediately!  I was inspired by Petra Tailor of Tailored Craftiness in Australia.  Here is my creation! 
Daisy front
I love the soft colors of peach (which is actually Coral) and the contrast of the pear pizzazz used.  For the inside, I lined it with the Calypso Coral and did another stitched oval and used the sentiment "your kindness makes a difference" from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  If you would like to make this card or one similar, click on any of the items and it will take you to my shopping site.  It was pretty simple and I am super happy with my first Daisy card.  More to come!
