Sweatshirt weather this morning!  I headed out to the office and my computer tells me that it's 46 degrees this morning.  Really?  Hard to imagine that we may hit 100 by Thursday? 

We are playing hooky today and heading to the zoo before the weather turns steamy.  Rob's sister and kids are in town from MA and since we don't see them often enough, we are throwing garden and stamping work to the wind and heading out to the zoo to see the lions and tigers and bears, oh my.  Ok, I never played hooky, even it school, so really,  I'm up with the early birds and doing a few things in the office and then heading out to the garden for a smidge, hence the sweatshirt.  🙂

But I promised that I would share the Everything Eleanor card sample that we did for our Catalog Kickoff.  My challenge for myself is a big one.  I want you all to fall in love with the Summer Starfruit new In-Color.  I'll admit I was less than wowed by this one but man, SU knews me better than I do….I love it now.  So I'm on a mission to make you fall in love.  Watch for it this summer and fall.   I'm pretty sure I'm going to use it A LOT!  It's fun and different from others in my normal palette of taste.

  • IMG_7744[1]Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, Perfect Pairs

So here's to new love….Starfruit, you are probably a re-bound relationship.  I'm definately NOT over Concord Crush, but you'll definately work for a Summer Crush.  🙂
