oh, I love your designs. the last one with your children's image is so sweet. The ultimate summer vacation would have to be at a house by the beach with beach service, maid service, cook, grandparents for babysitting, Brazilian food, and at least 2 weeks of doing absolutely nothing, just laying around, reading, sleeping, eating and enjoying the breeze and the sunshine. :) One day soon I hope. :)

Hi Irene,

Firstly, love the new Stamps!!!

Secondly, a Summer Holiday perfect for me and my family would be going to our favorite camping spot. It's a place called Buffelspoort (with is Afrikaans for Buffalo Valley). Although there are no buffalo there is enough entertainment for kids, especially over the December holidays. Remember here in South Africa we have our Summers from about October to late March. I love it because it is in the mountains and in the Bush. There are heated swimming pools both indoors and outdoors, Mini golf courses and trampolines. A spa and Jacuzzi baths set privately in little mountain coves.Accomodation to suite all but we love staying in the Tent Town.The tent homes have a little bathroom and kitchen area...Just perfect for all the comforts needed in a Bushveld setting without feeling like lyou could have just stayed home... At night we gather around the fire and have a "braai" (Barbecue). and by the second or third day the kids made friends and the parents start interacting like they have known each other since school themselves. There is a carnival atmosphere and the daddies and mommies compete hard for the title of the games around the pools, like Mr Biggest Belly and Mrs. Munchies... At night the stars are out in there thousands and the sound of game in the distance, promises a Safari on an open Jeep.
That would be my ultimate holiday, the typical AFRICAN Summers Holiday!!!

Cocoloko07 said...

Désolée! Dans mon commentaire précédent j'ai oublié de te dire que, mon meilleur été serait d'être en Provence, dans mon sud de la France autour d'une piscine avec des amis et un bon cocktail berçée au chant des grillons!

My ultimate summer vacation is spending three months on the island of Crete, snorkeling everyday, buying fresh produce at the local market and getting a fantastic Greek suntain.

Kary Sol said...

Wow Irene!!!
Fantastic stamps set. Thank you for the chance to win.
In the summer I like to go to the sea. Next week I go to Ukraine to the daddy. I it did not see three years. I worry very much....
Thanks for your blog, for inspiration .....

sharingmydaze said...

This is one of my favorite stamp sets you designed! My family would love to cruise the islands of Greece if we ever get the chance. The ultimate we have been lucky enough to do is cruising down the Nile in Egypt. The tranquility of the land and the lovely sounds of the chants from the minarets calling people to prayer is hypnotizing.

Colleen Winston said...

What a gorgeous stamp set!

My ultimate summer vacation would be doing as much of 'nothing' as possible. Life is too busy most of the year and I really treasure those 'lazy' summer days with no agenda to stick to. An awesome day would be spent laying in the sun reading a book, playing with our new puppy and of course some water fun thrown in for good measure.

Erica said...

Summer vacation should be spent on a great classic beach - like Cape Cod or the Hamptons. A chance to cool off from the TX heat, but still stay out in the sun.

Eva said...

First of all, I really think this is my favorite stamps design from you, so pick me!!! Hehehe....anyway, my favorite summer vacation would be going on a cruise..but haven't had a summer vacation in so many years, can't even remember anymore...hehehe...

Charlene said...

Love the beautiful stamp set. My dream vacation would be to go to Hawaii. Charlene =^..^=

Zarah said...

They are BEAUTIFUL!!
My ultiomate summer vacation would be one of those spontaneous car trips DH and I have been planning for so long. Just hopping into the car and driving though Europe - ending up whereever we feel like, every day... That'd be FREEDOM for sure!

Jennifer Sloane said...

My ultimate summer vacation would be finally getting to take a honeymoon with my husband to tour Ireland like we have both wanted.

L'Hélène said...

My ultimate summer vacation is either a nice beach (the nearest sea beach, as opposed to a lake beach, is 12 hours away) or Europe. I would so love to see Bruges, Paris, London, Toscana, Corsica, Spain!!

Thanks for the giveaway!

jan farnworth said...

what an swesome looking set. My ultimate summer vacation would be to go somewhere where we can enjoy the hot weather in the water. To relax and play and not have to do the normal rountine things. It been a long time since my family did a nice long vacation away from it. all.

Karen said...

My ultimate vacation would be able to go to Italy or Greece!

The ultimate vacation would be on a great island with my husband and a "staff" we only saw when we needed something! LOL I need this stamp set. My daughter did a piece from Swan Lake for her ballet recital. We have great pictures of her in costume by a metal gate - these stamps are perfect for those scrapbook pages.

I love the stamp set Irene.I have been watching the Tour de France everyday for the past 3 weeks and I think that covering the tour route through France (after the Tour went through) would be the ultimate vacation. They travel through the most beautiful country side.

Wirda said...

my ultimate summer vacation, is the last one spent with my father...about two years ago...when he was still alive...and no we did not take the train, we did not fly...it was no cruise either...
it was riding together. He was very ill then, and battling cancer. But I say it was the ultimate vacation, because it was the most precious of moments when it was just me and him. It was two souls...finding a place in this world... longing for freedom...from our inner fears...that was what I remember most.

Helén said...

My ultimate summer vacation is actually just staying at home! With a hectic life throughout the year with work, school, kids' activities etc. I just love spending a few weeks at home with my family during summer. Nothing planned, no alarm in the morning, just taking it day by day, doing things together that we enjoy as a family!

La Vikinga said...

Hi!
Nice page, art works and stamps. The ultimate summer vacation for me (living in a cold country lika Sweden) would be 4 weeks in a warm country with islands where I could rest with no telephones, hardly no internet and where I would be able to REST from the city noice and only hear the waves at night instead of drunk people trying to find the bus stop....

I would love to create projects with your July stamp set - my mind is reeling with the possiblities.

My ultimate summer vaction - loading up a camper and touring around the provinces of Canada. Exploring all the little nooks and crannies that this fabulous country has to offer and are seldom heard or seen.

Don't get me wrong would love to travel the world too but I think one should know their own country first.

Froggietalks said...

My ultimate summer vacation? I am torn between going to Sweden (my husband would LOVE to be there for some concerts) and Chicago (for the Cornerstone Music festival).. either one would be fine with me, as we would be going somewhere!! And of course, there would be lots of stamp stuff that I'd love to get my hands on that I can't find in rural Canada.

Beth Norman said...

Awesome stamps!

Gee, this is a tough question. I guess right now my mind has been on Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province where I once lived. I'm missing it so much I won't even head out there because I'm afraid of breaking down and won't want to come home. On the other hand, my heart is on PEI so if the opportunity arose, I'd be there next week!

Chok Keun said...

Wow!!! Love this awesome stamp set.

My Ultimate holiday? That would be bringing my whole family to a holiday, to anywhwere will be good. Destination is not so important as my dad has never step out of Malaysia, except to Singapore where we are staying now and working in. My mom always wish to have a chance to travel together with my dad, and I guess it would be great if I can convince my dad to travel!

Vanessa said...

My ultimate vacation would be to hike the entire Appalachian Trail...I hear you need about 5 months to do that! I think it would be terribly challenging but also very cleansing and spiritual to be one with nature. LOVE your stamps. As usual, they are so unique, light, and inspiring!

Renoa said...

OMG!i love that set of stamps esp the gate!!!gorgeous kat!

I would like to spend my summer vacation in the UK..it's a place that i've been dreaming to go, a place that i've been peeking to see, a place that i've been longing to put my foot to. I hope with the strife that i have put onto lately, I would have the chance to go there this year,even if it'll take forever, i would never give up *wishful thinking*

But ofcourse i would like to go there with someone who's very fun & loveable! :D my boo / my dear friends :D Oooo goodluck to whoever wins that! it's a precious one!Your work never fails to amaze me...eeeppsss all so gorgeous! keep it up yeah!

Xoxo,

Easy answer for me...a scrapbooking cruise to some island paradise (maybe near Maylasia so I could meet a very talented paper artist who lives there) :)

Hugs & thanks for all the beauty you share with us.
