Birthday Layout w Gossamer Blue

Happy Saturday! Just a quick update w the layout from my May kit.
This came together easily and I added a few details to some of the die cuts I created w my Silhouette like this snow cone w a few candied enamel dots and sugary Wink of Stella pen accents. Here's the left page...
And the right page...
It's HOT here and we had the ADA Tour de Cure this morning and spent the afternoon swimming so feeling a tad exhausted this evening! The girls are baby-sitting the neighbors so Eric and I are going to relax in the air conditioning and catch up on our DVR...

Gossamer Blue May

Is it seriously past the 4th of July? Oh me oh my, time needs to slow down! But it won't, I sadly realize as we are preparing to have a middle schooler living among us!?!?! Eeeeek! I did have a few days off and dug into some kits. Cards galore from the May Gossamer Blue kit and I am loving some of these, just fresh and fun!

I had fun mixing the random font letters to spell my sentiment. Next up, I used the wooden Sweet to create a sweet little thank you that happens to be my favorite creation from this kit. Not sure if it's the vintage like yellow flowered paper or the pretty blue polka dot one, but seriously had so much fun making this one!
This is my second favorite...
I swoon over the wooden camera and those gold hearts! So sweet!
And another thank u, just for fun with a few scraps. You may have noticed the envelopes behind each of my cards. It's typical to not want to part with anything pretty and these kits are packed with this problem. I pulled out my envelope punch board from Stampin' Up and whipped these up to create some unique sized cards and matching envelopes and use up the pretty paper...why hadn't I thought of that earlier?!? 

You can check out Gossamer Blue and their kits here. I created a layout for Addison's birthday party with the rest of this so I'll share that later this week, hopefully before too much time goes by! :) Hope you're enjoying your summer as much as we are!
