Hi Everyone!!!

I am so glad that you stopped in today. This is my 2nd post today and if you are looking for the Art Impressions Challenge card please scroll down to the next post.

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Celebrating Summer Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from Shanna's blog then you are in the right spot. If not, then you may want to start at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog and comment on everyone's blog along the way to be eligible for 5 prizes.

School is almost out and summer is right around the corner. I decided to use stamps from the Cocktails II set. Summer is such a great time for outdoor parties and, of course, a few tropical drinks, so, keeping that in mind, here is the card I am showing you today!!!


This would make a wonderful party invitation, don't you think!!!

Tropical Paradise 3458-417C
5 O’Clock Somewhere 3463-417A
Bahama Breeze 3464-417K
