Susan Branch stickers

Here's another card for CAS-ual Friday; we are to use stickers or rub-ons in our cards. I've used 3 stickers from some old Susan Branch scrapbooking kits, adding only the stamped birds and the ribbon and button to this one.


supplies: white card stock, Susan Branch checked border sunflower fence and "summer" sentiment, all stickers, Lawn Fawn "Bannerific" birds, gold card stock, gold satin ribbon, brown button, thread


I've been a fan of Susan's work forever - I have her illustrations for recipes cut out from old Country Living magazines, many of her books, some fabric, and these scrapbook items.  She has just started a blog, and posts several times a week.  I highly recommend it first thing in the morning to get your day started with a smile!

Lin, I adore your card, and I, too, have always LOVED Susan Branch's style! (I've had several of her calendars and I keep the pictures to frame!) I can't thank you enough for the link to her blog...I love it! The chirping birds alone make me happy...then there are the beautiful visuals and her awesome writing style. As for your card, I love the happy sunflowers behind the fence, and your ribbon and button are the perfect touch. So sweet!

Oh I remember having a Susan Branch book many years ago. I used to try to copy her beautiful illustrations and script for my own recipes. Thank you for reminding me Lin and pointing me to her blog. Oh, I nearly forgot to mention your lovely summery card - don't you just love the word 'summery'!
