Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge-July 2016!




Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Paper Sweeties Monthly Challenge!  And, there is a sale going on to save 10% with the coupon-sparkler along with a free package of apple pie sequins with every purchase 7-1- through 7-4-16!  Everyone loves a sale!  So, stop by the shop...happy shopping!:-)

A yummy wagon display with treats and ice cold lemonade with the inspiration photo!  Sounds like a great 4th of July party to me!   We will be having a busy weekend getting together at my sis's cottage for two bdays.  The following day we will be going to Cedar Point amusement park with son and friends and watch the fireworks over the lake!  I'm looking forward to the fun!  Whatever you have planned...enjoy and stay safe!  And, I hope you join in on the fun with the challenge!

A $20 gift certificate goes to one lucky winner of the challenge!  This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my card made for Dies R Us Challenge!

 And, here is my card...




For my card, I started with a white card base and added a water colored panel using Color Burst(Ken Oliver) ultramarine blue paint.  The mason jar, sentiment, and hearts are from the stamp set Mason Jar.  The cherries are from the set Homegrown.  Sweet Cut dies were used for the mason jar  Sweet Cuts-Mason Jar and for the cherries Sweet Cuts-Homegrown.  Sweet Cuts-Borders were used for the gingham tablecloth. Twine(Strawberry) and (Blueberry) to finish the card.

Please hop along and view more inspiration from my teammates...

Maria Patrick--that's me



Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Take care and have an awesome day!

Hugs,
Maria
