July My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi stampers!
Welcome to the July MMH release blog hop. This is another kit you don't want to miss!!!!
This kit is all about the lake and creating amazing scenes. This kit takes me right back home and my summer breaks at Lake Ohrid. Lake Ohrid is a lake which straddles the mountainous border between the southwestern part of Macedonia and eastern Albania. It is one of Europe's deepest and oldest lakes, with a unique aquatic ecosystem of worldwide importance, with more than 200 endemic species . We have vacation condo there and growing up I spent at least a month each summer and many weekends during the year. So this kit hit a sweet spot for me!!

Here's a quick look at the kit!

Kit Contents:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
14 Coordinating Frame Cuts
2 Fancy Dies

5 Ink Cubes (Dusty Blue, Lime Green, Forest, Cocoa, Sand Stone)

Blue Pearl Embossing Powder 0.5 oz.

Kit Value: $76.00

This first card was on the Hero Arts blog yesterday, so head over there for more details, but it was inspired by this photo of Lake Ohrid at dusk.


And here's my card for today ;)
