Clear Dollar Stamps AUGUST Blog Hop .." These are a few of my favorite things "


It is already the third Sunday of August. Where does time go? Dont get me wrong, I am all for time going by fast. These next 12 months cant go by fast enough ... 
It is time for the Clear Dollar Stamps' August Blog Hop!! Come play along with us! There are PRIZES TO BE WON!! I dont know anyone who doesnt like a prize!
Now, you should have made your way here from my BFF and the super talented Cassie's blog. If not, go ahead and visit Lori's  blog and start the hop from the begining!

This month, Linda has given us such a fun theme: "...These are a Few of My Favorite Things..." and that is left up to each of our own intrepretations. For me, alot of my 'favorite things' came to mind and I tried to incorporate most of them in my card.


The 'favorites' represented in my card are: The tropics. My family's favorite vacation spot is the Florida Keys and the amazing sunsets. Another fav is Copic markers (need I say more?) Another fav shown here is the paper piecing technique. I just love to paper piece! And finally, my favorite activity is stamping and coloring.

The stamp set I chose is from Clear Dollar Stamps, Monkey Love. It is currently on SALE for 50% off. Click HERE to go get it while you can!
