Good Morning Crafty Friends 
Welcome To Day Two of Mark's Finest Papers June Blog Hop.
Today were featuring a favorite stamp I love. Its called Pretty Pears. I love the single branches in this set and I knew right away I wanted to make wreaths. For my first card I use the branch with the berry's.  Now this wreath is a little odd but I'm extremely happy with the end. I used my Tim Holts markers sprites to get dots of red and green. Now After I had completed this card I thought to myself how awesome this would make for a Christmas card. I know I know were just starting summer. Well I don't care much for summer weather like the heat (only because in WA we don't have AC) but I do love the idea of summer fun and good eats. 

Up next I used the simple branch in this stamps set and let me just say I love the design of this flower. I was so excited that I had to use this one right way. To get the perfect circle I used a circle die because with my eye sight it wouldn't have been a perfect. So I went with a die but if you don't have a die just cut a circle with your cricut machine or trace a cup. I  colored my image in with my Sharpies. I just love how well these colors pulled together. I use some cotton tread to create my own bakers twine in the same color. 

Here's the Design Team:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
