Heartstring Design Team Blog Hop and Give-A-Way

Fun in The Sun
Welcome to the "Fun in The Sun" blog hop sponsored by Heartstring Designs. If you landed here from Gaby's blog you are in the right place. If not, and you want to start from the beginning, click HERE.

My inspiration came from thinking about spending time in the garden picking flowers for my mom (from her garden!). I love to garden in my spare time (lol, I have so much of that). I like to put flowers on my mom's desk to brighten her day because she is always there for me:)

The stamp is from our wonderful sponsor My Heart Stamps For You. I colored her with Prisma colored pencils. She is holding a beautiful flower created by Shelley that can be found by clicking HERE. I finished off the card with a sun, flowers, and grass from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.

I really enjoy making custom cards and if you would like to win a package of Funky Cards all you have to do is:

1. Become a follower of mine if you aren't already and...
2. Leave me a comment on this post and tell me what you like to do on a sunny day.

I will choose a winner by random generator on July 18th, which is when our challenge ends. Good Luck:)

Now, it is time for you to hop on over to Anne's blog to see what she has created for you!

In case you get lost along the way, here is a list of the entire blog participants in order:

1. Shelley
