HMF #98 - The Lazy Daze of Summer

This is my 2nd submission for the HMF #98 - Here Comes Summer.  This is also a 2nd borrowed stamp from my daughters HM stash.  Since I had to root around the storage room looking for Fish Tales which I used in my 1st submission, I decided I might as well borrow a few more and have them stamped and ready to color. 

My office window overlooks the Bow River and it is such a beautiful view.  All summer long I am able to see people floating down the river on their rubber dingy's, canoes, kayaks and pretty much anything else that will float.  It's a great way to enjoy those long hot summer days. 

This little guy is supposed to be doing an Autumn Cruise but I have changed it to a Summer Cruise and he is floating lazily down The Bow.  Here are the ingredients:

Stamps:  HM Autum Cruise
Paper:  SU dp, pear pizzazz, daffodil delight & peach parfait cs, Recollections grey cs, Coredinations dk green & dk blue cs, & Manga artist paper.

Ink: Memento - black
Accessories: MS punch around the page & border punch, spellbinders dies, dots ef, Marvey corner punch, butterfly brad, primas, ribbon, copic markers & white gel pen
Techniques:  Alcohol Markers & Dry Embossing

I am really enjoying making cards with these little mice as you can tell by my SCS gallery.  I hope to do many more in the coming weeks.

I have been enjoying the Canada Day long weekend which is coming to a close.  Our friends to the south will be celebrating their day tomorrow and I wish them all a Happy 4th of July!

Take care and thanks for looking.
