Summertime Refreshments — PP

Jaydee has a fun theme challenge for us over at the Paper Players this week:

I’m ready for a Summer holiday, how about you?  My kids have four more days of school, and then we’ll be celebrating Summer in our household.  Yippee!  I love having them home for the summer.

I was kinda stumped by this theme for a little while.  I don’t have any beach or pool themed stamps.  Nor do I have any sunglasses stamps nor flip-flops stamps.  I wasn’t sure what to do.  But then I focused on colors, and I knew I wanted to use Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush (the names are summery, right?).  And the Strawberry Slush made me think of a summery drink, and then I thought of using the Happy Hour stamp set.  Oh, the way the mind works!

Summertime Drinks

When I made this I was picturing a Strawberry daiquiri and a Margarita.  Sounds good!

Some of you have asked me to show the inside of my cards.  Well, there isn’t usually much to show as I don’t often do anything on the inside.  I feel lucky to get the outside finished on most days.  But I love the sentiments that come with this set, and decided to finish the inside on this one.
