Heartfelt Creations Alumini Blog Hop

I can't believe May is almost gone and we are speeding into summer!  The last Tuesday of the month is set aside for the monthly Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop.  I have used a  Heartfelt Creations stamp that was brand new in the package and just begging to be inked up, "Aztec Gold Sunflowers".  Sunflowers have always reminded me of summer and all things bright and beautiful.   If you arrived here from Lisa's
blog then you are on the right track.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning with Olga's blog so you don't miss any of these beautiful creations!



My card base is Canson cardstock and I stamped my sunflowers on Stampin Up cardstock using  Adirondack Pitch Black ink.  I used  a Spellbinders oval die for my sentiment and cut my leaves on Bazzill cardstock using  Spellbinders "Foliage" collection.  My design paper is from PinkPaislee's Queen Bee collection.  My flowers were colored with distress inks.

Thanks for visiting!  Your next stop on the hop is Linda's blog and she has a gorgeous creation to share with you!  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog you visit while you're hopping because one randomly chosen commenter will win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.  You have until Friday, June 1st at midnight EST to leave your comments.  The winner will be announced Saturday, June 2nd at noon.  The winner will need to email Emma Lou with "winner of May Alumini Hop" in subject line.  Here is a complete hop list in case you get lost hopping:

I like how you added the foloiage die in with the sunflowers. I have that stamp, so I will have to try and remember that the next time I use it. Nice job on your card.

I noticed at least four different people using multiple comments to try and boost their chances to win - it doesn't seem fair. They are different comments, so they didn't get posted accidentally. The previous poster did it 10 times.

I love to read your comments!
