Cool Treats On A Rainy Day...

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

It's another rainy, gloomy morning here in PA. If anyone is liking it, it is probably my flowers that I finally got planted. It really dresses up the porches to have some fresh colorful flowers out there!
My hubby is still on vacation and has done very well picking up on sleeping in which is something he hardly ever does anymore. He talked about going fishing while on his short vacation but has not done so because it's been cool & windy here. Not sure what's going on with Mother Nature but I hope she soon brings back some sunshine & temps in the 70's!  

So, today I have a card set made with a stamp set that I had in my collection since January called Cool Treats. I was actually waiting till warmer weather to ink it up and since we had 3 days of 90 degree weather last week....I made sure to get it inked up!

My customer requests cards quite a bit that do not have a saying on. 
Sometimes that throws me off but I am getting use to it. She told me one day why she likes them without a saying on it and I guess I never really thought about it. She told me that she likes to have these types of cards on hand to send out for a last minute thank you or a birthday. She had a friend come visit her and they decided to go get ice cream. She wanted to send a card to the friend to thank her for that fun trip to get ice cream because it made her day! The Cool Treats set is a great choice for making a fun card! It's a shame that I waited so long to ink it up!

Cool Treats Card Set:

Stamps: Cool Treats
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Watermelon Wonder
Cardstock: Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Cool Treats Specialty DSP

My thoughts today.....

I think we are in for another week of rain showers possibly thru the Memorial Day weekend.
All I have to say about that is......blah!

That's all I have for today.
Thanks for stopping by & have yourself a great day!

This card set is so cute and just perfect for this time of year! I love all those summery colors and fun dsp! The weather has been absolutely insane this spring so far, but we're far more fortunate than those dealing with floods, so I try not to complain! Looks like an indoor holiday this Memorial day at the rate we're going! Have a great week ahead in spite of the weather :)

What a yummy set of cards! Love the bright colors you used on them. I leave a lot of my cards "blank" of sentiments for that same reason, multiple occasion usage that way! Sure hoping for some sunshine here to although I have to work the next 3 days an can't enjoy it much anyway.
