Summer HAPPY hello!

Tonight's Pink-A-Licious HOP LIST be sure to link your very own creation on My Pink Stamper's site when your done hopping! I am excited to see everyone's creations!

 Raechel  {{YOU are HERE}}
Tracy--Craft Junkie Too YOUR next stop

For my Summer Theme I made a 4.5 X 4.5 card! I totally think of the beach fun when I think of SUMMER...so here is my FUN card! 

I used 2 different My Pink Stamper stamps to mix and match the sentiment. I stamped then embossed with white embossing powder so I am hoping you can see how wonderful Robyn's stamps look in white! I LOVE IT! To purchase your very own set of My Pink Stamper Stamps click HERE I used my white gel pen to accent the different cricut cuts and tied off with some wonderful twine, I just got in the mail from the twinery...YAY!  

Since this is my LAST official My Pink Stamper Hop, and what a privilege it has been to be on the My Pink Stamper Design Team, I decided to have a give away!  A My Pink Stamper Stampset... TO ENTER just leave me a comment with an email to contact you.  I hope you all like my summer theme card and have FUN with the rest of the HOP! 
{{hugs}}~Raechel
