Simon Says Stamp Encouraging Words Blog Hop!


Welcome to my stop on the Simon Encouraging Words Blog Hop!  The hop started yesterday and continues today.

I was sent the new Suzy Watercolor Paintable Prints set called Fruit Puns.  Here are 2 cards plus 2 panels that I watercolored with my Spectrum Aqua markers and water.






Since these panels are A2 card sized, they take just a tiny bit of trimming to frame with a colored cardstock to make these simple cards.  There are 9 panels in the set, which is made of nice heavy watercolor paper, and all of the sentiments are punny ones!  Aren't they fun?   Here's what the whole set looks like:

Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Collection: Encouraging Words

You should hop over now to one of my favorite card makers,  Lisa Addesa !   Or if you haven't started the hop yet, you can begin at the Simon Says Stamp blog. 

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25.00 coupon at EACH STOP along the blog!  That's 11 winners from just today's hop (and don't forget to do the same for the blogs on the Friday hop!)  The winners will be chosen randomly from the comments at each blog, so make sure you leave a comment at each stop to increase your chances of winning.  The winners will be posted on the Simon blog next Tuesday, August 8.

Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!

Awesome coloring. Love them.

Love these prints and your colouring is beautiful.

Laura Peddicord said...

The fruity puns are perfect to use on any card, but especially ones for kids to remind them how special they are. Everyone loves a pun and they're much easier to understand than a joke or something along those lines for the special kids and the younger ones. I also enjoyed seeing how you had water colored the fruits because they are all so pretty! Thank you for sharing!

Linda W. (ScrappinBari) said...

Just love how you colored those fruity panels, Lin! Such fun for quick cards too!!
