Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

Today, I have a card to share for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
 

 This month's challenge was to use this photo as inspiration:


Isn't it fun?
So perfect for summer!
I decided that it would be fun to make a card with popsicles and fruit
and use Psalm 34:8 as my sentiment: "Taste & see that the Lord is good."
I thought that I had a stamp with this sentiment in PTI's Daily Bread set, 
but when I went to look yesterday, it wasn't there.
So, I decided to make my own sentiment for my card on my computer
and printed it out on PTI white cardstock. 
Here's my card:


I stamped my fruit using Still Life: Summer stamps and dies.
I stamped my popsicles from Summer Sweetness, inking them up with several 
colours and then spritzing them with water before stamping them
onto my background or onto a coordinating die.


It had been a while since I played in my craft area 
and it felt very good to make this card yesterday evening.
I really enjoyed it!

Thanks for looking!
