A Day of Sunshine with Avocado Arts

Welcome back to Day #2 
of the...

Many of the designers are creating new things
each day, some are not, so I will include a complete
list of designers on the hop at the end of this post
so you can check out their blogs as well.

Of course, the theme is celebrating *summer* and today,
I am celebrating using the June set of stamps from
one of my new favorite companies...
Avocado Arts!
There are so many images in this set and they are
so very versatile.  They are clear stamps, so aligning
them on your projects is ultra-easy!

Here is another little something I put together
using the very same set.

I truly do love these images!
Each month a new set is created and delivered to your door.

One of the reasons that I am especially fond of this company
is because of one of the owners is a
very dear friend of mine.

This is Michelle Ogdahl and I when she brought
Avocado Arts to the Milwaukee Expo last month.
She is one of the sweetest girlies I know.
Not only do I hope you will check out
their blog and website, but I hope you will
pop over to their Facebook page and *LIKE* them
and please tell her I sent you.

I have some pretty terrific prizes up for grabs for
those who are visiting this blog hop each day.
