This is Honeybee Tilda and Meadow Daisy from the Magnolia Summer Memories 2012 Collection and it is colored in oranges and creams for the challenge at 7 Kids College Fund.

A long list for the colors used so here goes;  Copics and Prismacolor Pencils were used.

Leaves - YG67, 63, 61
Stems - YG95, 93
Grass (the little part that is actually part of the stamp iamge) - YG07, 05, 03

     Grass Green 909
     Moss Green 1097
     Apple Green 912

Summer Secret

Okay, it's been awhile since I posted anything and I can't believe how the time flies.  With a huge fence project and golf and work and looking after a house and yard the summer is flying by.

This new project is an idea from Norma at From My Craft Room.  She makes absolutely gorgeous items so check her out.

Lots of pictures for you so here goes.

Shell - E44, 43, 42

The flowers are from Wild Orchid, the die cut is Spellbinders and the phrase is stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Weathered Wood.  The stamp is from Impression Obsession.
