Kathy McDonald

Linda, your party projects are wonderful! Who wouldn't love to be invited to this soiree? My favorite stamp in the new release is the surfboard. I've seen so many darling cards made with it that I now NEED to add it to my collection!

Safe travels!


I just vacayed in Hawaii so I have to say the open palm tree. They are such beautiful trees!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Susan N.

Hi! Vi! Looking good, glad to hear you are feeling much better. My favorite new stamp is "hippo". My daughter loves hippo's and this is the cutest one I have seen so far. Love all the new Summer Fun release stamps. Thanks for a chance to win. Wishing you a safe trip home.

Rachel Hope

OOOH, tough choice....I love the Open Palm and the Sand Dollar, both just speak to me! :)


Fabulous party! How do we RSVP ;-)

Vi has great taste, for sure; she picked a fabulous assortment from this release! And she even included my favorite--Simply Sublime! What can I say? I'm a sucker for punny sentiments :-).


Wow, these projects are fantastic..all of them! Thanks for the inspirations and ideas! You always to know what we {heart}!! This SUMMER FUN release is really cool! My FAVE? Hmmm..tough choice. I'd say the CABANA and the PIRATE BIRD (soo cutee!).

Hello Vi, great to see you doing well and no more surgery..yipppee!! I'd say, yes, it's LOOT TIME! :o)


The girl pirate! Love it! :-) Me and everyone else I am sure.

Whitney H.

I love the submarine and hope your day is simply sublime. FUN new stamps!

Lori Frost

You are amazing. Your party ideas sound so incredible. Thanks for sharing everything, it inspires me. As far as my favorite stamp, it would have to be the hippo or maybe the alligator.


I love the surfboard! So cute! The new sentiments are fabulous, as well! Thanks for the chance to win.

jen shears

I absolutely adored the ready set recline & open palm & cabana card!!!!
So glad Vi's recovering well!


These projects are so wonderful! Vi, it's great to hear that you are doing well! My favorite stamps (which is a very difficult choice, I love them all!) is the Palm tree and surfboard.

Take care and I hope your family gets to spend as much quality time together making more joyous memories!



Vi you look fabulous!!:) My fave stamp is the sun. Take care,

Kelly Marie

I think I have to pick the alligator. He is such a cutie!

Dana Klinkner

Vi, so glad to hear that you have recovered so well - blessings to you as you head home!

I LOVE so many of the new stamps....I really like the new open palm tree - it's a favorite for sure. But I do have to say that the hippos is just stinkin' cute. Oh you guys always do such a great job of making my wishlist grow and grow....sigh.

Thanks for the chance to win!


There's no place like home! Glad there's no submarine ride involved in getting you to Quebec . . . but that's my fav for this release.

Be well.

Suzie P.

A WARM HELLO. ENJOY THE RIDE home. Glad it's not in a SUBMARINE or on a SURFBOARD. The CABANA by the OPEN PALM is READY SET TO RECLINE in after DOING LUNCH with Mr. ALLIGATOR. It will be SIMPLY SUBLIME. Vi, my favorite new summer release would have to be ORCA with DON'T FORGET TO HAVE A LITTLE FUN TODAY! coming in a close second.


The snorkel boy reminds me of being a kid in Hawai'i, I can see oodles of cards coming from that stamp in all the A*Muse summer colors ;)

Kathy D

Oh, Vi! You look wonderful in the recent photo - so glad your recovery went well! I can't decide if Pirate Bird or Snorkel Boy is my favorite from the summer release.


I think my favorite is the sun. It looks so cheery, especially with all those bright new papers.


It is very difficult to pick just one new favorite, but I think I'll pick Enjoy the Ride". This would be a cute sentiment for a birthday that could go with the convertible, the love bus, etc.
Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Doreen Schostek

All of the new stamps look so relaxing and "summery"......but I think the palm tree is my fave with the cabana being a close second! Glad your mom did so well after her surgery!

Debby W.

This is the best release EVER, Linda! I love them all ... but my favourite has to be the hippo. He is just so cute and darling!

Jenn E.

This release has to be my recent favorite! Picking one favorite from a bunch of favorites is tough - but I've been most drawn to the images of the surf board.

I'm so glad to hear your Mom is feeling so well. She must have a bunch of spunk! :)


VERY cute ideas!

hmmm, to pick just one favorite stamp? they're all so cute, and there's several i'll have to have, but probablby my most fav is the cutest hippo! i have nothing like it in my collection, so i'll have to have one :)


LOVE the Hippo! And if that sentiment: "Hippo Birdie to you!" is a stamp, that one wins MY vote! I've been hand-writing that sentiment for years!


All of them are adorable how can I just pick one? They scream summer to me and I can almost smell the suntan lotion! Maybe the bird with the peg leg... Thanks for the chance to win!


I absolutely love the little submarine!

sue wisniewski

Too many to choose from but I'll try. The open palm tree, bird with peg leg & snokel boy but I hope you add a girl soon.
thanks, stamping sue


Vi you sure look great!
Continuted good health to you!

My fav new stamp is....(it's tough to narrow down!) the sand dollar. It's just so cute!
Going in my cart TODAY! :)


what happy news about your mom! :)
the surfboard stamp is sooo cool- love everything about it! and the new gingham paper is stinkin' cute!!! love all the fun ideas for a get together too!

Laura Bassen

Love that alligator, especially witht the Let's do lunch stamp. So great!


I love all the stamps but I think my favorite one is the cabana. It's just so relaxing and reminds me of when I go to Las Vegas and they have the cabanas by the pool and I wish I could be in one.


The little peg-leg birdie is darling.


I love the snorkel boy. I love the whole release actually but he's my favorite.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.


I LOVE the alligator with the "Let's Do Lunch" sentiment! So cute!


My fave is the Open Palm Tree - it reminds me of Florida. I am a transplanted native Floridian and I still miss it!

Melisa Hunter

So many cute stamps! I love the surfboard!

A. Flora

The little boy snorkling. I have 2 little boys and he reminds me of them. Adorable!


I think the cabanna is my favorite! This is a fabulous release!!


I love the cabana - it will be a perfect stamp to "take me away" during the cold winter months.


Yikes, that is hard to say. I like so many of them. I really like the Snorkel Boy so I will pick that stamp.

Thanks Vi for wanting us to have a some blog candy.

Molly K.

Love them all! My favorite would have to be the sailboat. Reminds me of summers on the lake. Also very excited for the gingham card stock!


Love 'em all...but that little alligator is so cute!! And the little boy snorkling...and...and...and...!!!


The top of my wish list includes the alligator, open palm and the cabana. I adore all the new papers as well. I am so glad Vi is doing well and feeling strong! Have a wonderful summer, Vi!


Best wishes to Vi! Take care! Well, there are SO many cute images ,but I think my favorite is the open Palm Tree! It's just so adorable and I love the added "coconuts" ! (second choice is the cabana!!!)

Amy L. Weber

What an awesome prize!! I want to win it so badly!! I'm especially lovin' the alligator--so cute!


surfboard is my fave


I heart the submarine, it is adorable!


I love these summer stamps! It's impossible to pick just one. If I have to I will say I love the snorkel boy and the surf board. Wish I could do both.

Susie P

Hooray! Thanks for the chance to win, my favorite is the snorkel boy, but I want them all!


I totally love the alligator! I can think of so many ways to use him!

Sarah Jay

I can't wait to add Sunshine & Laughter to my collection. It's so versatile and will go with so many of your images.


The Palm Sillhouette has to be my most favorite. The samples I have seen with it already are just breath taking. I just heart the new gingham papers also!! Thanks for the chance.


Ooooh, it's so hard to pick one favorite since they're all so adorable. I think I love the submarine the most.


Dear Linda and Vi, So glad to see Vi looking so well! I think my favorite of the new stamps is the open palm tree but it is a tough choice.

Gerianne K. Patti

I Love
The simply sublime sentiment- you can use it with the adorable submarine or with the margarita glass stamp. Can't WAIT to get that one

Happy Summer!

Doris G.

Oh, this is a hard one...but I am going to say the cabana. It is just darling....


Since I'm from Florida, I ADORE the whole release, but I'm a Florida Gator girl, so you know I love the new Alligator!

Anita Young

Such cute projects!! I love the open palm - reminds me of our trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago :) Thanks for the chance to win.


They are all so cute it is hard to pick just one. I will say the cabana brings back some great memories.

Jennifer Andrews

They are all adorable. I especially love the surfboard and the submarine. So many ways to use those.


Love them all... and even more so as I have seen how creative the creative team really is! I especially love the sentiments. But my favotire might just be the Sailboat!

Denise~Paper Ponderings

Choose? One? Oh my...how is that possible? Alligator? Surfboard? I love 'em!

Stephanie Jones

the SURFBOARD! I'm married to a surfer! Can't wait to get my hands on this down at Paper Tales in San Diego!


cute, cute and even more cute... LOVE them all.


I can't wait to find the cabana. I live in south Texas, somewhat near Corpus Christi and I think of Corpus when I see the cabana. I love the new summer stamps. Thank you for making my card making so easy and unique!


Fabulous release, I love the sun, submarine, and hippo!

Mary Ann

I LOVE Snorkel Boy. That's what my son looked like every summer when he was little. Brought back memories!


Hi Vi, Linda and all the other a muse gals! I am so glad to hear that Vi is recovering well, time surrounded by loved ones is incredibly healing! I love all of these new summer releases but the sailboat speaks to my heart, I grew up spending my summers on a C&C sailboat, so I can't wait to send that image on a card to my dad for father's day!
Best of continued health!



I love them all! My favorite is probably the submarine or the little snorkler. It's so hard to choose, they are all so adorable! And the papers, oh my gosh! I think I'm in stamp heaven! :0)


what fun images, I think my favorite though is either the sand dollar or the open palm. Just love them both too much to choose.

Dottie K.

What a great prize! I like the hippo and alligator. It's hard to pick they're all so adorable. Thanks so much for a chance to win. Love the new papers!!!! Can't wait to see them in person at my stamp store. Hope she has them!!! :)

erica m.

Do I really have to choose only one? The sentiments are fabulous and my fave stamps are snorkel boy and cabana!

Olga Hall

I am in love with this line!!! ohhhh to pick one??? I love the cabana....with the invitation of " let's do lunch"


Hey Vi! I was the crazy girl that cut tons and tons of Accucut shapes when I was there with my mom in April. It was great to hang out with you! I'm in love with the cute hippo. Thanks for the chance to play!

Christine Loy

Like most A Muse Fans, we would end up with all or most of the Summer line. I know I would. But, if I must pick - I would pick the hippo and the hippo birdie to you sentiment. It was a hard choice, like picking a favorite amongst your children!


Great to see that you're well Vi!
I have to say the "hippo" is my favorite and a top priority to purchase.


Love the alligator! My little girl has just fallen in love with alligators and your stamp is a cute one.

Sharon Knitter

I love the cabana! I want a real one.


Love them all if I had to pick it would be the surfboard!! Happy Summer!!!!


I just recently discovered A Muse, and I am very excited about these new stamps.
The submarine, sublime, and deep sea diver stamps have to be my favorite. I love the yellow sub card!



I would love to pair the adorable alligator with let's do lunch. Seems crazy, I know, bu alligators always look hungry to me! But I really like Orca, too. We are big fans of Sea World. GREAT new stuff!


I just love the open palm with the surfboard a very close second.

Kim Smetters

Love the FUN TODAY stamp since we as humans forget to take a little time out to enjoy the good times and special memories in the making...this stamp reminds people to do just that!! Great stamp :)

Joan Kriete

I just love them ALL! Summer in Chicago...will it ever get here! These cards make me hopeful and wanting to bring on the sun or go to find the sun either one!! Thanks for the new stamps and all the great ideas! Love AMUSE and your BLOG! Keep up the great work Ladies!!


There are so many great stamps to choose from in this release, but I'd have to say my favorite is the hippo! Sooo cute!


That little pirate bird is just too cutie. I can't help but giggle every time I see it.


Way to go, Vi! You look great! Wishing you well.
I have to say my favorite is all of them, but if I have to narrow it down, it would be the surfboard. My daughters just took their first surf lesson and it reminds me of a fun day in their lives.

laura gz

I have to agree with my sister - that little pirate bird is my favorite. Although the hippo comes in as a close second.

Ann I.

So glad to hear that Vi is well again! Loving all the new stamp releases! Must haves are the submarine for its uniqueness and the sun for its versatility!!


My favorite stamp in the new release is "have a sun-sational time". All these beachy stamps are making me smile!


I would have to say that all the sunshine stamps are my favorites. They are so versatile that you can use them anytime, for any occasion and they're sure to bring sunshine and smiles to everyone.


So glad to hear Vi is doing well. I'm jealous that you are going to Quebec. My mom leaves in Montreal and I live in Washington. Sigh. My favorite stamp of this release. There are too many to pick just one ... however Snorkel Boy reminds me of my son Gabriel. So that's the one. Have a safe trip.

Patty W

Vi looks BEAUTIFUL ! Reminds me of my dear Grandma!

Love all the stamps. A warm hello speaks to me, as well as the gingham and the pirate bird!

Beth Rang

Hi! My favorite new stamp is the girl pirate. Aaarrrrr!

Kellene P.

I'm loving the gator and the sailboat. Too cute!


I love the open palm \! Your party goodies and favors are so cute!

Brenda H.

So glad to hear that your Mom is recovering so well!
What cute projects and favors...love it all! My favorite is the palm tree. Thanks for this chance to win!
