Hi everyone! I have a new card to share with you today with a GORGEOUS Saturated Canary stamp called Ava!  She was a freebie from Krista HERE!!! Is she sweet or what!? Thank you so much Krista!

I have been doing so many Christmas cards I thought I had better hurry and do some summer ones, since I missed that season completely haha!  I was making this one to go with the last theme of "outdoors" at the Saturated Canary challenge, but missed it. Oh well, I can still show ya'll.

Card Ingredients:

Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  Echo Park Hello Summer 
Tools:  MS Frond Punch, Cheery Lynn Butterfly, MS Flower Bed Punch, Cricut
Embellishments:  Seam Binding and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

I used the Cricut to cut clouds from the Winnie the Pooh cartridge, then glued felt to that and cut around. I drew grass with my DI markers and distressed all my edges, except the butterfly which has white paint.  

Thank you for taking the time to come and see Ava! I hope you like her as much as I do!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Dena,
Oh it is lovely to see you crafting more often again. I do so love your cards and the amount of love you put into them. Your little card with the kittens in the snow is stunning and your penguin card is the cutest!
I really must get started on my christmas cards. Trouble is as soon as I am able I have to start my friends wedding stationery as she has brought the wedding forward a whole year, so its a rush now to get everything ready.
Ah, nevermind. Hope you are well, take care Linda x
