Christian Paper Crafts "Sweet Summertime" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Christian Paper Crafts "Sweet Summertime" Blog Hop!!! Each month on the 22nd, we have a blog hop to celebrate the theme of our Design Team Delights gallery for that month. Every one is welcome to play along! Create a card, layout, or altered item with the theme of "Sweet Summertime" and link it HERE on the CPC Creative will also find all of the deets there on how to win a prize. To find out more info on our monthly blog hops, click on the blinkie button on the right side bar.

For my blog hop card, I decided to make a summertime lake scene by using the cattail image from the "With Heartfelt Sympathy" set and the "Save Time" single stamp, both by Our Daily Bread designs. The background was sponged using scratch paper, Stampin Up ink pads and sponge daubers while the white cardstock was still inside the Labels Eleven die, in order to keep the white frame.

Cardstock: SU Soft Suede and Whisper White;

Designer Paper: Basic Grey 'Pyrus';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU Ink Pads and markers;
