Happy Summer Holidays!


Well, I got into my usual summer routine right away this morning - coffee on the deck in the sun with the daily crossword from the newspaper.  I won't be able to do that again until we get home from holiday - but that's fine!

Today's card is a combination of two challenges -
The sketch is from Mojo Monday and the colours are from Create with Connie and Mary - Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Grey.  I always get a little nervous when I see Real Red.   I thought of flowers when I put the three colour scraps on my table and so I tried doing the spreading ink technique.  Now that I actually look back at my technique card, I see that I should have used glossy white paper.  Ah well.

Have a fantabulous Saturday - I'm off to get some stamping business done while doing laundry and packing.  I want to have everything ready for our trip today so that I can enjoy Canada Day tomorrow.  Thanks for visiting.
