Summer Fun with Oliver & Amelia at TGF!!!

Who's READY for some SUMMER FUN?!?  

I am!  I am!  We heard ya over at The Greeting Farm, too, because Oliver and Amelia are already on the task at hand to bring YOU some SUMMER FUN!   

Introducing....Oliver/Amelia SUMMER FUN!

I LOVE this set because it reminds me of fun days at the beach when I was growing up. Being from Florida, going to the beach was easy, fast & free so we went a lot as you can imagine. I loved the pool best and would beg to go to the pool at the beach every time we went.

With that in mind, I created a fun card using Amelia from the set. Oh my gosh, how cute is she?! Her hair is so much fun to color! I love the sentiments in true TGF Fonts we have come to love and adore. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have kraft CS back in my supplies -- actually you can probably take a guess since it's been on nearly all my cards lately! haha I also dug into my October Afternoon 5 & Dime paper pack which was just perfect with the bright fun vintage colors.

SUMMER FUN will be released this FRIDAY, JULY 1st, during our "BLUSHIN' into SUMMERTIME" DT BLOG HOP/RELEASE PARTY, beginning at 12:01 am, CST...but you can WIN this adorable set today by 'swimmin'  over to the TGF Blog to read how!

We sure do hope you'll splash on over to party with us this Friday, but for now, I'll be back tomorrow with ONE more preview- can you BELIEVE how HOT, HOT, HOT these releases are for the month of July?!?

In the meantime, you'll definitely want to stop back over at the TGF BLOG tomorrow for a special treat from July Guest Designer Jen Shults!  We have a FULL week of fun planned and you won't want to miss a day!   See you then!
