It is Flowers and Helicopters

Because my post for today is FULL of flowers but I do also have a little helicopter in here.
This is my Card Postioning Systems sketch card for this week and I am using my new Hero Arts flower stamp again because I just plain love this thing! The sticker sentiment is by SRM stickers, I thought that worked so perfectly with this sketch.
I stamped the flower cluster three times so that you can only see the tops of the flowers and stems. I colored them with Copic markers and added some Aleene's Paper Glaze to portions of the flowers. The background is decorated with Glimmer Mist.
This card uses a BRAND NEW stamp set by Tami Mayberry for Gina K stamps. The reveal for this cute set was Thursday night and during the release party, there was a color challenge so, of course, I had to give that a try because I just plain love challenges, especially color ones.
The helicopter, the little sun and the sentiment are all part of the set. I colored the helicopter with Copic markers and added some Aleene's Paper Glaze to the windshield which gave it a glass-look.

And here is part of what we did today, we visited a rose farm. They had an open house today and it was just plain spectacular.
He loved that he matched the red roses with his red shirt.
This is big sissy running through the yellow roses that matched her shirt.



Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
