InStyle End of Summer Hop


Good afternoon everyone!!!  Are you ready to hop along with InStyle Stamps' End of Summer Hop???  Let's do it!!!  If you came here from Kimme's Blog, you're on the right track.  If not... go back and start at the beginning... I promise it will be worth it!! 

As always, once you've finished the hop, you can go to InStyle Stamps Blog and vote for your favorite creation you see along the route and YOU could win a prize!!  You don't even have to use InStyle Stamps, but if you do, you could win more!! 

My card was created with the new Sunflower image.  I don't know where you live, but here in Iowa, it seems we have a huge abundance of sunflowers.  Either out along fields or near farm homes.  Seems they grow early in the summer and you never see them towards the end.  To me, watching them get so all and dusty and withered makes me think they should grow at the end.  I always thing big stocks of dried corn stalks would be perfect decorated with these huge sunflowers.  And don't you think they'd look great next to scarecrow and such at Thanksgiving time?  I do!!

I used my Copic markers to color my sunflower and sponged some blue around before I removed my Nestabilitie from my image.  I also used my new BIG dots Cuttlebug folder to emboss a small strip behind my image.  It reminded me of the seeds in these big wonderful flowers.

Your next stop on the hop is Axa's Blog.  Have fun and remember to stop and vote at the ISS Blog!

Good luck!!!

Hi Tina, I love your sunflower card! I'm in Arizona so ours have come and gone. The sunflower heads are all that's left filled with lots of seeds. The birds love that!
