I’m excited to be part of the Newton’s Nook 3rd Anniversary Bloghop today – thank you to Jennifer for sharing this sweet puppy stamp set with me so I could join in on the fun! More on the hop later in this post.

Quick summer cards

It’s summer. Face it, we’re busy! The weather’s been lovely where I live, plus I’ve been traveling like a mad woman, too. Sometimes we just need an idea for a quick card to stamp and get ‘er done so we can share some happy mail with a friend. For my cards, I just got out my Zig Clean Color Markers and went at it with these cute doggies! Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Here are all three quick cards – I had them all done start-to-finish in an hour!Sandy Allnock Newtons Nook Bloghop
