Hi and welcome to The Craft's Meow July Release Blog Hop! If you came from The Craft's Meow Store Blog, you are on the right track. There are four stamp sets to be released today and I am showcasing the Lovely Birds set illustrated by Nina Brackett.



This is a really cute and versatile set. I love those sunflowers!


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then colored with Copic markers.


The patterned paper is from Emma's Shoppe collection by Crate Paper. I adore the mixed font sentiment, too! =)
