Hi Sweetie/Flourishes

Hello.  I am back.  I couldn't resist playing along with Flourishes sketch challenge.  Especially since I got several new packs of their stamps.  I decided to use the blueberries.  Yummy!  These fruit stamps are so cute.  They remind me of a 50's kitchen.  I think that is why I keep using gingham and bolder colors with these stamps.
                        
Let me tell you...blue Copics bleed just as much as red.  I had a time with this image.  I colored it 3 times before I was satisfied.  Not happy, but satisfied.  So that means no clicks to make the pics bigger.  LOL
I can't wait to see the new release coming.  I am horrible when it comes to new stamps.  I think I might be buying all my Christmas presents early. 


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Kraft
Stamps:Flourishes/ Berry Sweet
Ink: Memento/Tuxedo Black, MS/Forget me Not, Tim Holtz/Antique Linen
DP:Basic Grey, October Afternoon
Seam Binding: Blue Bird Lane Etsy
Buttons: PTI
Twine: PTI
Die and Frame Die: PTI Friendship Jar Fillers
Mulberry Paper Leaves: Recollections
Spellbinders: Classic Ovals (LG) and Labels 10

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  :)
Hugs,
Heather

Girl this is so pretty! I have to confess, I clicked to make the image bigger and it still looks perfect! I think when you tell someone not to do something, they more than likely will do the opposite! Ha Ha!

Of course I had to click on the picture but it doesn't change my opinion; your card is lovely. Blue is my favorite color and that makes it even more lovely to look at. Your berries are wonderful. You really have a great feeling and talent for coloring. Love your gingham paper; gingham is another favorite of me.... And you know how I feel about your bows:) Definitely a winner!
