Simon Says Stamp Encouraging Words Blog Hop!


Welcome to my stop on the Simon Encouraging Words Blog Hop!  The hop started yesterday and continues today.

I was sent the new Suzy Watercolor Paintable Prints set called Fruit Puns.  Here are 2 cards plus 2 panels that I watercolored with my Spectrum Aqua markers and water.

SSS Encouraging Words Blog Hop


SSS Encouraging Words Blog Hop 2


SSS Encouraging Words Blog Hop 3

Since these panels are A2 card sized, they take just a tiny bit of trimming to frame with a colored cardstock to make these simple cards.  There are 9 panels in the set, which is made of nice heavy watercolor paper, and all of the sentiments are punny ones!  Aren't they fun?   Here's what the whole set looks like:

Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Collection: Encouraging Words

  149. The fruity puns are perfect to use on any card, but especially ones for kids to remind them how special they are. Everyone loves a pun and they're much easier to understand than a joke or something along those lines for the special kids and the younger ones. I also enjoyed seeing how you had water colored the fruits because they are all so pretty! Thank you for sharing!
