July, August, September!

Howdy all! Hope your week if off too a GREAT start! Quiet weekend with some things accomplished, and off to a running start today! This time of year brings lots of tax related home office work for me but I'm feeling good about where I'm at. Still finding some time to stamp too!

July, August and September detailed below! October actually is done too, but I'll save it to share with November and December soon!

July. What color does July say?? Red, White and Blue obviously, but I used that for June. So I went with Purple. Purple is always the right answer for me! I thought July usually starts with full bloom on flowers around the house. They may not survive the heat of the month, but we at least start with them in full bloom! My pots usually contain at least some purple petunias. Sometimes all purple, sometime mixed. Here is what I did.

I was very glad to see a darker purple return to our color families! Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Gray Granite. The base, center petal, July, and center dots are Gorgeous Grape. Back petal is Highland Heather. Center and background dots and ribbon are Gray Granite. Awesome, right?

August I went with "regular" sunflower colors. There are soooo many varieties of sunflowers out there! I generally plant a few different ones. Here is my basic version.

Crushed Curry base, center petal, August and some dots in background. Daffodil Delight back petal. Soft Suede center and some background dots. Crumb Cake leaves, center dots and background dots. Burlap ribbon for accent.

September, a more fall colored Sunflower.

I hope that you are all seeing how flexible this awesome set Painted Harvest is! Many color options whether you want it to look like a sunflower or something else!!

This one is Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake. The card base and accent layer, center petal, center dots and September are Cajun Craze. Back petal and background dots are Crushed Curry. Center and background dots Crumb Cake. The ribbon accent is Copper Trim. It looks darker in the scan than it is in real life!

Thanks all for stopping by yet again! Product details and shopping links below! Happy Stamping!!
