A Happy Hello!

This year is just marching right on is JULY already! This is one of my favorite months since folks are decorating with red, white and blue. I gave my blog a bit of patriotic flavor as well and as always, if you prefer not to listen to my music selections, scroll down and turn off the player or mute your speakers.

Okay. Well, I thought I would make another card using that delightful Graphic 45 paper I got from Ellen's store. I paired it with another Lockhart image, this one is called Apples in Chintz Bowl. I ♥ Karen Lockhart stamps. They are so much fun to color! I used my Copic markers on this one. I sponged distress ink on the focal image while it was still inside the Nestie to give it a bit more color and to make the bowl of apples pop. I did the same for the sentiment. Fun! Fun! Fun!

Supplies-cardstock:Red Pepper(Memory Box). Navy Prism. Neenah Classic Crest Cardstock, Natural White. paper:Playtimes Past, Hopscotch (Graphic 45). stamps:Apples in Chintz Bowl(Lockhart Stamp Co.) sentiment-Everyday Classics(PTI). ink:Memento Tuxedo Black(Tsukineko). Olive(CTMH). Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo(PTI). other: Copic markers, ribbon. Classic Circle and Petite Oval Nestabilities(Spellbinders).
Thank you so much for visiting. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
