C9 Birthday Bash Blog Hop...

I am so glad you are stopping in today!  It's a fun day over at Concord & 9th!  Its another day of the Birthday Bash Blog Hop!  I have a couple of cards to share today and there are prizes!

C9 Birthday Bash RECTANGLE

First up is my card using the set Pop Art Pineapple (all supplies linked below)...

I did a very simple watercolor wash with my Peerless watercolors.  Then added that adorable Pineapple stamp and sentiment over some silver thread.  To finish the card off, I added in some clear raindrops.

This next card showcases the set called Tree Hugs.  I am from Colorado and my favorite tree is an Aspen.  So when I first saw this set, I knew I had to have it.

This is a simple, one layer card.  I simply stamped the trees and then the heart and sentiment.  I added in some red hearts and the colored in the background and trees with some Pebbles Chalks.  Super easy!

Now for the prize!  Leave a comment here for your chance to win a $20 gift card to Concord & 9th.  Comments will close Monday, August 22nd at 12pm CST.  Head on over to Concord & 9th to check out all the details for their Birthday Bash!  Thanks so much to Greg and Angie for having me along on the hop!

Hope you all have a great day!
