Clear Dollar Stamps July Blog Hop - Summertime!!!

Welcome to the Summertime Blog Hop
 for Clear Dollar Stamps!

If you arrived here from 
CASSIE'S blog 
you are in the right place. 
Wasn't her project AMAZING???

If you just happened to stop by and
 want to see the entire blog hop,
 Click HERE to see it from the start!

For my card today I used another new Digital Image
 from CDS called Vegetable Garden.
I think of summer time as a time to get my garden growing! 
How I love fresh from the garden cucumbers!

I used the cucumber image and 
the words from our garden on my card.

I distressed the paper with Antique linen and 
tea dye Distress Inks before coloring with
 colored pencils blended with mineral spirits.
After I finished coloring I again rubbed 
some more distress ink over the image.
The background paper is from Bo Bunny.

Yep, I love summer for fresh vegetables too. Except I'm lucky enough to have a neighbor that shares! Oh and the farmers that bring in and sale from their fresh corn-on-cob yesterday...can't wait for dinner tonight!

Heather said...

yep, cucumbers definitely say summer around here too! I have several in my sink waiting to be used up. Love that you used the cucumber image on your card.

Super card, and it certainly says 'summertime'! I just picked my first banana pepper from my 'garden' today. Gardens and fresh veggies just say 'summer,' don't they? Beautiful coloring and great job, Barb!

Babe O'Mara said...

Great job on the coloring. Cute card.


Margaret said...

Candy F. said...

Your card definitely screams summer to me! Great coloring.

What a fabulous card Barb!!! Your right, home grown veges are the best. Too bad we have too many deer around who would love a garden full of veges!

Nothing screams summer than fresh goodies from the garden. Love your card. I just picked squash and green peppers. Thanks for the fun hop.

Nice card, thanks for sharing (wish it was summer here in Australia - the vegetables are so expensive at the moment!)

Jerusha said...

I wish I really did have a garden so I could grow my own veggies. Perfect summer card!
