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.
