Hello, and...
Happy Friday!!!

It's the 15th of the month - that means it's Digi Release Day at Clear Dollar Stamps!!!
I have a couple of cards to show you today that feature the June Flower of the Month set, "Rose". I thought that this beautiful flower would look pretty in pink, so that's what I decided to use. It will be fun to work this up in different colors to see how the look changes with color variations. The sentiment I used in both cards is from the Patriotic Charlie set - isn't it a beautiful font? The first card is standard A2 size, while the second card is a 5 3/4 square.

All coloring is with Copic Markers. Cardstock is Bazzill Basics, trim and ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. Pink Pearls are ZVA Creations, white pearls are Hobby Lobby, and oval Spellbinders were used. The background DP is from Graphics 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection.

To see all of the new digi stamps, hop on over to the Clearly i Stamp blog, or to the Clear Dollar Stamps Website. Be sure to also visit the other DT members - I'm sure that they will have some beautiful creations posted on their blogs!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend - stay cool :) The forecast here is upper nineties through Sunday, then in the triple digits next week. Add 'heat index' to that, and it's going to be scorcher days! U2 concert Sunday night here, hope you have some fun planned for the weekend!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Food for thought:

"It's been a rough day. I got up this morning...put on a shirt and the button fell off. I picked up my briefcase and the handle came off. I'm afraid to go to the bathroom."
