Summer is here …

3 Jun

At least I hope it’s here to stay for a while, given the crazy weather we have been getting in MN.

Over at Crissy’s, she has declared summer too – a summer theme card! There are many things I love about the summers – allergy season from spring is slowing down a little; no need for coats, hats and mitten – thank goodness, when you have to run around the house to put on 2 sets of gloves before leaving the house (sometimes 3 sets when the 1st set comes off before the 2nd set goes on); grass is lush and flowers are blooming, especially the sunflowers … and here is my sunny flower card for Crissy’s challenge.

Background is stamped using Impression Obsession cover-a-card distressed diagonals. Flower image and sentiment are stamped using Stampendous Daisy Thanks Perfectly Clear stamps. The entire card was inked using Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks – Wild Honey and Vintage photo.

Enjoy the warm weather!

    Hi Steph, Your card is awesome. Of course I love the CAC BG, the way you mounted your flowers, and the colors you chose to highlight your sentiment too! Thank you so much for playing and good luck in the drawing too!!!
