The Stamp of Life: Lemonade2Drink

Good Morning & Happy Monday!

I hope everyone’s weekends were spectacular! I came down with some sort of sinus infection Saturday and started running a fever that night and continued throughout the entire weekend- BOO!

During that time, The Stamp of Life released another FUN club set, Lemonade2Drink!

I kept my stamping simple for this summer set :)

Here’s another:

Overall, Sarah really took note of my pins on my Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. The blue dress is KILLER & just like the dress I pinned which is way more expensive. I’m also quite pleased with all the Summer looks in this Fix. The last fix had a wee bit more fall than I’d hoped for, so this Fix was perfect…sigh*

Are you interested in Stitch Fix for yourself? Go check it out! Hopefully, you have just as much fun as I am!
