One Little Word - July Blog Hop

Welcome to another month of One Little Word. In June we were encouraged to get a bit messy and creative and produce 9 little cards, choosing a colour that maybe continued a theme from our album or a colour that was speaking to us, and to just pull out some supplies and make some mess.

I thought I was going to do a whole heap of copper stamping and painting, to tie in with the "I Scrap" class I did in March, but when I pulled out my "Grow" album and spread all the pages out, apart from a very subtle floral theme in browns and creams, every single layout had a tiny, but very obvious touch of beautiful red.

So my colours were set - Crumb Cake, River Rock, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler. I wanted to GROW the floral theme a little more, use some stamps I haven't yet used and include Shimmer Paint, as I have been using that a lot lately.  My stamping room is now an utter mess, but I don't think my cards came out messy at all . . . What do you think?

Oh, and of course if I was using a touch of red, there had to be a quirky little lady bird somewhere!
