This is a decorative plate that hangs out on the bar in my kitchen. I decided over the weekend it was finally time to get rid of the hearts on it (from February-YIKES!!). This is the new summer look!!

I wanted something bright and cheery for summer. I found the roll of yellow dotted ribbon in my closet and started there. My kitchen has greens in it, and my decor has sunflowers so this coordinates well. Its the Flower Fancy set stamped with Craft ink in Yoyo Yellow, outlined in Summer Sun and Always Artichoke leaves. If I had new color craft spots it would have been Daffodil Delight! The welcome is done with the retired Well-Worn Alphabet. The plate was a gift from a friend many years back (thank you Lisa!!) and I love changing it with the seasons. I know this particular plate was from a party plan company and I'm not sure if they are still in business, but I have seen similar items in the major craft stores. Once in a while it gets put away, but never for long.

I had every intention of stamping today, but so far it hasn't happened. I've been cleaning and running errands and am heading out soon for baseball. Not looking forward to that, but need to go support the 2nd Crete Pony team then be there for Kyle's game. It's warm out and horribly humid. Yuck, but Good Luck to BOTH Pony teams!!

Wow, that is SO cool! I didn't know such things existed! How fun it would be to change the plate with the seasons. I may have to look for one of those!
You did a great job "re-decorating" it! Beautiful, and I'm sure it goes with your sunflowers, too!!! :D
