Flowers, Fruit, Birthdays and Monthly Releases

Now what do all those things have in common?  Lots of each for the month of July!  But let's start with the monthly release - by Doodle Pantry

I love having a vegetable garden and having lots of flower beds.  So I used this new digital image of the wheelbarrow for both.
For the first card I used a pre-colored image but added some woodgrain and color.  Then filled the wheelbarrow with flowersoft flowers.
Base is GKD Sweet Mango cardstock.

Sketch is MFT.

For the second card, I used a digital set, Cherry Tomatoes,  from the Doodle Pantry store.  I tried to size them so they looked like full size tomatoes. Also used the set, Wagon Wheel, from the store.  I really like making a scene and/or mixing sets, superimposing pieces upon each other.
The base is GKD Sweet Mango cardstock and the piece layered behind the image panel is GKD Tomato Red. (How appropriate !)

The designer paper and sentiment are both included in the new set, Old Wheelbarrow.  Here is the whole set:

You must head over to Doodle Pantry to have a look at the new release.  Laurie has the cutest digital sets for the Wizard of Oz characters, not to mention a beautiful Black Eyed Susan, some Christmas sets, and.... Well, you will just have to check it out!  And when you see all the wonderful sets you want, now is the time - 25% off all new sets July 1 - 7.

In future posts, I will get back to the title because I have 1 daughter and 4 grandchildren with birthdays within 11 days of each other in July. So you will probably see some of those cards here.  AND we have a grandson due July 4th. Of course July - as if we didn't have enough in that month already!

Okay, I will let you go for now.  Have a wonderful 1st day of July.  Try to stay cool.
