The Best of Summer

Hi readers! Happy Sunday to you! I’m so thrilled to welcome another first time Simon blog guest designer to our readers! Welcome, Pam Sparks! She has made 2 incredibly beautiful cards with a mixture of Memory Box products! I’ll stop chatting so you can start enjoying!


Inspiration for my cards… Summer!  The view I see when I’m working on my Memory Box cards…a beautiful Summer day.

One of our son-in-law’s birthday was this week and he loves to grill!

We had a tart cherry tree in our backyard when I was growing up.  Lots of fond memories of making pies with my mom.







Thanks for reading today and thanks to Pam for being our guest!

  15. Both of your cards are lovely. The scene on the first one is just amazing…so much detail. And I love the crisp, clean look of the second one. The textured card stock is gorgeous paired with the smooth cherries. And your story about memories of making pies with your mom, was very sweet. Thanks for sharing!
