WOW!  Where has this month gone?  It has just flown by.  I wait all year for June so I can get together with my girlfriends and stamp.  There are several of us - some from California, some from Minnesota, some from Iowa and some from Nebraska.  We spend 3 days together in Iowa, getting there in time for lunch and shopping on Sunday, stamping all day on Monday and half a day on Tuesday.  Then we go to our farewell luncheon and go our separate ways until the next year.  We just got home on Tuesday evening and I am already looking forward to next year.  We spend hours laughing and eating and talking and stamping.  Top priority is laughing.  If it is in fact, good medicine, we have our annual supply stored up. 

My stamp today is an Amariah Rauscher stamp called Ramona and her Wagon.  I colored it with my Copic markers and then added a rub on butterfly.  The paper is from my stash and was double sided. 

A funny story - you know, how you get inspiration from strange places?  Well, this second grader was walking down the hall at school with a very pretty headband on.  I asked her to stop by my desk and wrote down all of the colors in the headband and came home that night and made this card. 

Enjoy your summer, it goes by so quickly!

Until next time, Happy trails to you...
