I Thank God For a Friend Like You

I hope you had a great weekend! I've got a card to share with you that would be great for any occasion - made with lots of goodies from Scrap-Mart. After I stamped my flower and leaf, I colored in the details with my new Tim Holtz Distress markers.  They really make it easy to add more defined details than just inking with the pads. Then, I shaped the flower using the McGill Flower Tool/Pad.

Pumpkin Patch

I know it's just the start of summer, and I've already got a fall layout to share with you, but it seems like in the paper industry, we are always working at least a season or two ahead of time! At least this layout can remind you of those crisp autumn days ahead.

I just got the Victorian Picket Fence die, and thought it would be perfect with my photo. It's so easy to see this die as ultra feminine, but it worked great for a boy layout too. My daisies are made with Stacker Flower #2. I added greenery with the Flourish Leaf Strip and the Iris Leaves. I finished off with some great borders - Francesca and the Daisy Lace Bracelet.

This weeks challenge over on the CLD Challenge blog is Red, White and Blue - that should get you in the mood for the 4th of July! And remember, all entries this month will be entered to win aBigShot Die Cut Machine!
