June PTI Blog Hop!!!


It's time for the PTI June Blog Hop! This month we were challenged to take inspiration of summer colors from a photo. At first I right away thought of my purple iris that bloom along our house each summer that were better than ever this year! I did create a card based on that using the new Picnic Basket set, but than inspiration hit me again! While at the beach with the kids the other day, we all took a swim break for a snack and I watched 3 sun-kissed kids enjoying their Bomb Pops! I know- red, white & blue- not a very original color combo! But, it is very summer and I just went with it!




Of course, I didn't have my camera at the beach because of the horror of water or sand and a camera! So I took a photo from the web.


And here's what I came up with:


I used the new Card Couture template to make this as a little 4th of July gift for my Mom. I got her a cute little clear stamp set, red/white/blue star gems and some various 4th inspired ribbons. I'm going to tuck it all in the files inside to be her little 4th of July crafting kit!
I used the Vintage Picnic set as well as Let Freedom Ring, Spring Rain & Pure Poppy inks.

Thanks for hoppin' by!
Hugs- Kelly
