June “Stampers with an Attitude” Focus on Summer Blog Hop

I’m working on something new for Photo Fun With Fun…my very first blog hop. If you are new to the concept, it goes like this: You visit (hop) from one blog to the next in order until you find yourself back where you started. This particular hop has 12 participants, (I’m #3). You should have come to me from Melinda Everitt’s blog. (If you are starting here with me, you can reach Denise Elliott and Melinda at the end of the circle. So when you finish here, please go visit Sheila Bennett

I made two “Summer”-themed cards for my contribution to the blog hop. Those of you who have scrapped with me know that I am a “recovering” naked scrapper, so my style is very simple. The basis for both cards was the Jubilee Scrapbook Workshop-On-The-Go. Both bases are 4.5″ x 5.5″ Colonial White cards, with the fold at the top. All products used are from Close To My Heart. To purchase any needed supplies, visit my Online Business Address.
