So can you say cuteness??  Country cuteness?  Camping cuteness?  Either works here!  The new Birch Tree Rectangle frame is just fabulous!  I love the detail of the branches and the sweet leaves that come with it.  I colored the frame with Copics.  

Next up, the adorable Big Bear stamp.  He is actually a mix of watercolor and colored pencil.  Once colored he was fussy cut out.  The sentiment panel was first stamped with the Mountain Layers Slimline Stamps.  They work just as well on a regular, A2 size card as well.  I had to get those purple mountains in there.  Lastly, the What's Up sentiment was stamped in IO Black Ink.  

At this point I decided I needed some trees in my background so die cut and colored with Copics the new Trees Dies.  


Everything was assembled on a dark gray card front.  The card front was stamped tone on tone with the Wooden Plank Cover a Card.  This stamp is one I use frequently as it comes in handy for so many designs.  

The new tropical image, Hammock Time,  is perfect with the new Happy Retirement sentiment! I stamped the image with IO Black Ink on Mixed Media Paper and then loosely colored with Ken Oliver Colorbursts.  


The new stamps and dies are available now!  You can find then all HERE.  

Next up on the hop is the talented Lynda!  

Enjoy the hop!
