If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday June 25 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on June 26 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Provence Window! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

For my floral birthday card, I first stamped two of the largest  Summer Flower Pops, colored then die cut then w/ the matching die. On one, I trimmed it closer & removed all the background petals & popped it up a bit on top of the full flower. One of the smaller flowers was used for the center & I used the yellow Copic to color the (originally clear) frosted resin stone for the very center.  The white panel was masked down the left side & the Flower Corner stamped a couple of times & colored.  After die cutting the larger gray gingham background & a ribbon out of the same paper, I attached these & stamped the greeting

Here’s a look at the inside. I wanted to color the Flower Corner but didn’t want the color to go thru, so I die cut a piece of 22# paper, stamped it, then attached it to the inside. Below it are the Copics I used. 

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Knit Happens! Yes m’am,  it does…and if you like to have some wine while you won’t be pretty. Just sayin’. Anyway, these are the colors for today’s Color Challenge (CC624) on Splitcoast. Daffodil, garden green & blackberry. And it seems I have a slight aversion to the blackberry. It’s an odd color, hard to work with & harder to match. The only think that came to mind was this cute little digi & I figured I’d delegate the troublesome color to the ground area. 
After printing it out, I colored it then die cut it. The dk purple bg (closest I could come to the blackberry color) was embossed w/ a knit pattern folder & it was pretty much done.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. This is going to one of my knitty friends who also happens to like my cards 😛

A big congrats to Helen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS495) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful, colorful gallery. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case because I have the same dies. So I kept the Dresden quilt die background & layout, but I used different papers, different colors & made mine a Christmas card.

I die cut the quilt 3 times w/ 3 different pieces of paper then put my quilt all together. I also die cut the poinsettia layers and attached it in the center of my quilt. The greeting was added below & I used part of the Filigree Frames to accent the ends.
