Lawnscaping FIT June Blog Hop

It’s time for the Lawnscaping Challenge Facebook Inspiration Team’s (FIT) Monthly Blog Hop! We normally have the FIT hop on the fourth Friday of the month, but there’s a special event happening on the blog next week, so our June hop is a week early!

You’ve probably arrived from Yukari’s blog, but in case you’re starting here, you’ll find the full hop list at the bottom of my post!

This month’s hop is once again being sponsored by The Ink Road! Be sure to visit The Ink Road and Lara’s blog! We’ll pick a winner from all of the comments left on our hop to receive a gift certificate to The Ink Road!

PURPLE is our inspiration color for this month’s hop, and while it’s one of my favorite colors, I sometimes have a hard time creating with it!  I made a card with the walrus in Lawn Fawn’s “Critters in the Arctic” stamp set . The fan is from the “Best Pun Ever” stamp set.


I stamped another set of fan blades on vellum and punched a hole in the center of the vellum and the center of the white fan blades. Then I attached a brad to the center, but didn’t press it down all the way so the vellum blades can spin.

The “cool” background is made with the same technique (and stencil) that I used on this card.

Here’s a side and close-up look at my card:



Here’s our full blog hop order:

Suzanne – you’re here!
Before you continue the hop at  Lenny’s blog, be sure to leave a comment for me so you can have a better chance of being the lucky winner of a gift certificate to The Ink Road!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re enjoying all of the inspiration in today’s hop and are going to have some time to craft this weekend!

The Lawnscaping blog will be hosting a Lawn Fawn & coffee-themed blog hop next week, so make sure you stop by the Lawnscaping blog to get in on all fun and inspiration!
