I have 2 neglected rolls of washi tape that I thought I should give a little love to; they both feature summer fruits and flowers.

Here's another card with a hand-made plaid background, in cool colors this time.
Once again, Simon's cardstock colors are a pretty good match for my distress inks!
Thanks for stopping by today - I appreciate your visits.

I've been trying to use supplies that have been neglected. Today's card uses some Tim Holtz Brushstroke Flowers dies, and I used solid cardstocks from some ancient 6" paper pads.

Here's another hardly used set of stencils with matching stamps, dies, and even background papers that I have neglected. I made this first one for a birthday in May, and enjoyed the processs so much I made another in a different colorway.

Since I have a little more time now, I've been revisiting some of my old cards for inspiration. Today's card is a result of that, using some elements from THIS (first) card, mixed with a new embossing folder just released at Spellbinders.

I took advantage of a Memorial Day Sale at Birch Press Design and brought home this lovely. In my opinion, you can never have too many roses!

Now that I have a bit more time, I've been enjoying pulling out my existing supplies and enjoying them again! Today I have a butterfly card.

I've been enjoying finding a woodblock stamp to play with each month for Amy's Woodblock Wednesday challenge! This month I have a Penny Black stamp called Scented Message, dated 2012, with a bonus sentiment from Paper Inspirations (no date shown).
I hope you'll dig out your woodblocks, old or new, and play along too - you can find all the info here.

.....that's the name of the Morning Glory seeds we plant each year to share a bean pole with a clematis. The seeds take a while to germinate, and a little longer to climb, and set their flowers, but when they open they live up to their name in spades!!

Here are 2 cards that use several elements from the new Sealed for Summer release: the Floral and Vine 3D embossing folder, and the Glimmer Bouquet foiling plate.

Our 52nd anniversary was earlier this week, and I wanted to share the card I made for my husband this year. I carried yellow roses on our wedding day.

I fell in love with these Honey Bee Stamps Daisy Layers, and finally got them home to play with!
First I used the stamps and the matching stencils together.

June is the month for weddings, and therefore anniversaries. We have our fair share in our family, and today I have a card that would work for an anniversary, or just any "thinking of you" occasion. I mixed some favorite stamps for this card.
