Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you are all doing well and are ready for the weekend!!  I know I am ready for the weekend but this weekend will be busy as we have several overnight guests coming for the weekend.  I really enjoy having our entire family together so I am not complaining.  It will be so nice to see them all...but it will be busy!!!

Today, Whimsy is kicking off the Weekend with sneak peaks for the July release.  Today's sneak peaks include the new sentiments and dies!!!!
For my creation I used the Summer Seals Sentiment Collection designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo designs!!!  I just love these seals.  They are so versatile.  You can use them with images, put them on gift boxes or have them stand alone.

I really wanted to go with a summer feel so I used a fruity paper with strawberries on it from the Bearly Mine Delicious Delights paper collection (Fruit).I won this a couple of weeks ago at the Bearly Mine challenge.  I really am loving Donna's digital paper!!!

I went with a red, white and blue theme with a splash of kraft (neutral) and black. The navy paper is embossed with the Spots embossing folder from Provocraft.  The sentiment is framed with the Lacey circles from Spellbinders and the Fancy tags dies.

card recipe:
Stamps: Sneak of Whimsy's Summer Seal Collection
Paper: Delicious Delights from Bearly Mine Digital Paper collection, Navy, real red, Kraft, white and black CS
Accessories: Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Classic Circles, Provocraft Spots embossing folder, gingham ribbon, White May Arts ribbon, Bow easy
