PLUS, our MOST cherished, crafty QUEEN of the DESERT!
Hannelie!  WE are SOOOOOOOO delighted to have her fine
talents in the mix with our crafty challenges this month!

~WELCOME, Hannelie!~

And WHAT a fitting combo was this week's sketch,
and DAY #2 of Wplus9's June/July release!  We're REALLY
buttering YOUR toast with today's samples! {!}
I was inspired to swim through my arsenal-o-Wplus9 products,
and play with Dawn's Chevron Impression Plate! *Swoon!*

For my texture rich background, I decided to get in the country spirit
with a patchwork creation, combining squares of color, stunning
chevron pattern, highlighted {or LOWlighted, as it were...} with
craft ink, dragged across the ridges, for a MOST pleasing result!

But WHILE the CRAFT ink was open, I realized it would make the
perfect, powdery accent for these DELICIOUS blueberries, from
Fresh Picked, that were the centerpiece from this fantastic label
and matching die, from the Preserves Jar Die collection. So, using
a "well loved" stiff, dry paint brush, I dabbed some accent onto the
desired spots on THESE yummy blueberries!  The Craft ink picked
up just a hint of the die ink, to produce a LOVELY powdery frost!

{Pass the CREAM CHEESE and a fresh bagel - I'm READY!}

But since we're already talking about sweet things -
CHECK OUT the Wplus9er's! 

And our WONDERFUL guest designer for this release,
Cherry Nelson!

~ Boy!  Am I glad it's SUMMER!~

These stamps are BRINGIN' the sun!  They are THAT wonderful!

Thanks, soooooooo much, for letting me share!

Enjoy YOUR sweet DAY!
