Here comes summer!


I can't believe June is here already!  So I thought it was time to change up my blog again; this background and header is one of several that I really like made by Ingrid

One symbol of summer for me is sunflowers, and so I decided to make a sunflower card to welcome summer, following a sketch that Shari shared with us at the Hero Blog.  Though the calender doesn't say summer quite yet, the weather here surely does; we've been having highs in the 80's, and you can see things growing! 

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CL426, CL266, CL137, S5101, BoBunny orange citrus dot, Bazill gold dotted cardstock, white cardstock, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, scattered straw, vintage photo distress inks, Hero Arts soft apricot shadow ink, VersaMagic Mango Madness, Versacolor Marigold, Adirondack Sunset Orange, assorted paper flowers, Making Memories velvet brads (thanks, Mary Anne!)
