Summertime...Yummertime Mio


Summertime refreshment is always welcome...from fresh squeezed lemonade to something a little "harder".  And the past few days....well, cold beverages are a requirement if out in the sun.

I submitted this card for a swap featuring beverages and I wanted to create something bright and cheerful, since summertime always make me crave fruity icey sweet colorful drinks....I guess it takes me back to relaxing beachside with a cool breeze with no worries in the world.

Anyway, this card features the {ippity} "Live Half FULL" itty bitty Unity Stamp Company set.

Here's the drink recipe that inspired the card:

Annie's Summertime Mio

Recipe
5 oz. Dry White Wine
2 oz. Soda Water
2 Fresh Strawberries, Muddled
1 tsp. sugar
Twist of orange

Directions
Mix together and serve over ice in a sugar rimmed glass.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
