Paper Garden Projects Summer Stroll Garden Walk.

Welcome to the Paper Garden Projects Summer Stroll Garden Walk
Take a stroll through the blogs of the Paper Gardeners and enjoy some friendly inspiration. This month we are focusing on some big summer fun.

While you visit, subscribe to each Gardener's blog and take note of each designer's name and their special summery garden walk word in their blog post. Once you finish your garden tour, send an E-mail to with the list of designers and their garden walk word.

Everyone who sends the correct list of designers and words will be entered in a random drawing to win a prize. You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don't leave your list as a comment. You have until midnight (EST) on Tuesday, June 22 to send your list.

And the prize? How about this fun summer unmounted stamp set from Kraftin Kimmie - Mae (love that hat!).

So enjoy the garden tour (don't forget your sunscreen). Here is the garden tour guide list:

•Erin You are HERE!

So on to my project! I made this card using some stinking ADORABLE Beach Bum Summer Penguin stamps. I can barely handle the cuteness of these penguins enjoying a vacation away from their southern frozen climate. I also used the Cover-a-Card Bubbles Background stamp on this card. I stamped it just one time on a scrap of turquoise paper for the card. I then used a craft knife to cut it in waves and just overlapped them until I was happy for the bottom portion of the card. The cover-a-card line of stamps are HUGE by the way. 5.75" square, so any of them can be used vertically or horizontally on a card. Didn't really matter so much with this bubble one, but GREAT for other designs. Love it! I did my coloring with watecolor pencils. I hope you are enjoying him.

If you are doing the blog hop you might be looking for my special word? My word is picnic. Best of luck to you!
