Yay!! Summer is finally here. One of the best things about summertime is living and playing outdoors until the sun goes down. Neighborhood block parties are a common sight in yards all over town. Nancy Bear is the "Queen" of summer parties and her yard is the place to be in the summer. The pool will be full of little bears and tween bears preening along the side. And the toadstool playground will be a loud and rowdy place where little bears chase each other and play all day.
2: The summer has barely started and the sounds of laughter can be heard from the back and smells of steaks and hot dogs grilling fill the air. It's a great time to be a little bear.
3: And it's a great time to be a teapotter, cuz Nancy Bear has given us an open invitation for all 42,000 teapotters to stop by and enjoy the fun. We'll have to bring our own sunscreen as bears don't keep it around but she will have plenty of food and drink for all. So teapotters, get your sunscreen and your shades and lets head to the block party.
Bring anything you'll need to lounge poolside and soak up some of the glorious sunshine with us.
I brought a lawn chair to sit by the poolside and also to gaze out a the beach and watch the sandpipers running along the shoreline....
I drew the lawn chair.
Thanks for looking,

You drew the chair? What a fabulous scene and drawing! Love your sponging and grasses in the foreground and all that beautiful stitching. What a gorgeous card!

Love, love this gorgeous card, Pat - wonderful scene you have created with these stamps! Although looking at your very capable drawing skills I don't think you need stamps!! Great chair and so inviting just to sit awhile!
