Summer Afternoon

This stamp set I used for the following card reminds me of a quote by Thomas Jefferson, "Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today."  Also, Proverbs tells us, "Do not say to your neighbor,
“Go, and come back, And tomorrow I will give it,When you have it with you." Proverbs 3:28  So as I was making this card, that is what I was thinking about and realizing that I have been putting off a lot lately and need to get back on track.

Anyway, here is my card!  Just a small lesson to myself!

This card was inspired by a sketch challenge blog I just found and loved the sketch called Freshly Made Sketches.  Please check them out.  And this is the first time I have used this stamp set from Stampin' Up! which is a hostess set.  It has three different stamps and I love each one of them.

Here is a side view!

And yes, I did the inside and used a verse from Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set, Scripture Collection #1.

Stamp Sets used today are:
SU - Summer Afternoon, Cottage Garden
ODBD - Scripture Collection #1

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful evening!
