sunny summer

Over at Seize the Birthday this week, Barb has challenged us to make cards around summer activities.  I love warm weather so just being outside in the summer is one of my favourite things. I dug out one of my favourite vintage wood mounted stamps to make this stamp.  Getting the smooshes watercolour background "just right" took several attempts but finally got one that I liked. It's hard to see but I used a green sparkle pen for the leaves on the tree.

Hope you can join our Surprise Party guest Lorraine (thank you for all of your amazing creations the last couple of months!) and the rest of the team to create some crafty goodness around summer activities.

I think summer may have finally arrived here so I'm looking forward to spending some time outside this weekend.  Hope you can too.
Thanks for stopping by,

Card details:
