Flower shop Love U

My posts have been few and far between lately. Lots of company over the last couple weeks, running all over the U.P. sight seeing, lots of family get togethers, and HEAT, HEAT, HEAT!  This last week we have had four days in a row of over 90-95 degrees. And humidity almost as high. Just going outside to water my flowers was not fun! And we have gotten about 3" of rain in last 3 days. Much needed rain, I might add. This afternoon it cooled down a bit and I was able to do some dead-heading in my flowers, and got my tomato plants tied up and pruned a bit. But the water was still pouring off me, so I finally gave up and came inside. AHHHHHHH, blissfully cool and dry. TG4AC.
Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler, maybe even cold!!!! Can use a bit of that right now.

I am still working my way through some scraps and odds and ends that are cluttering up my work space. I just got this SU 'Flower Shop' set, and was playing around making some flowers, and wouldn't you know it, these bits of paper were laying there, one strip of border cut, and this sheet of rub ons, and they all went together! Love when that happens. So......

I used the sketch from Iwona's Sketch Book Saturday Challenge #100 for my layout. This also fits the challenge over at the Cards-in-Envy Challenge:  Layers -card creations that have paper LAYERS! I will also enter in the Tuesday Throwdown #156-Anything Goes.


 The deep coral  border  is DCWV cardstock,  cut with an EK Success border punch. The flowers are from the SU Flower Shop stamp set, cut with SU Pansy Punch (although I don't know why it is called a 'pansy'-pansies don't look anything like this.) I colored them with Copics, and highlighted the center with a Sakura Gold Gel Pen. , and I cut the leaves from scraps of Old Olive with a Quick Kuts leaf die. I used Imaginessence hot-fix crystals as accents on the borders. The design paper is scraps off my work table. the sentiment is a K&Co. 'Lucy's Linens' rub-on. 
Very cheerful. 
I love to have you leave a comment!
