If you have come here from Tresa's blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Erin's blog and start from the beginning!"

This is simple do to- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! These fun card was so easy to make with the new Tinkerin' My Reflections paper! I love these colors for summer, and as soon as I saw these stamp-sets, I knew I had to have them!

Originals Template: Lucky Three (turned on it's side,) and another that I can't remember right now Paper: Tinkerin' My Reflections level 2. My Acrylix Stamp Set: It's a Zoo, and Thank You. Ink Colors: Clover Meadow, Sunny Yellow, Twilight, Sunflower, and Black Staz-On. Embellishments: Mini-Medley's White Daisy, White Hemp, Connections Club, and Summer Craft Buttons, Citrus Leaf Organza Ribbon, and I used a sponge to apply the ink.

Now "Hop" on over to Rebecca to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs and My Acrylix Stamp Sets!
