Summer Days

I have not been a good blogger this week. I've been fighting with Google. For some reason it wouldn't let me access anything on blogland yesterday but thankfully seems ok today so I'm going to get this post done quickly in case it changes it's mind.

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine. It seems like summer has come back again for the time being, lets hope it lasts.

Because it's been so nice I thought I'd show you a couple of cards I made playing with my favourite Elusive Designs Wildflower stamps that feel really summery. This set of stamps are the ones I reach for the most and are so versatile, I just love them.

These were simple cards. I just used two stamps and some coordinating chalk inks to create a scene and then matted them onto plain card and added a silver peel off edging. I shall add a greeting later when I know who I'm going to send them too. I shall definitely be making these again in different colours.

Thank you so much for looking.

Hi Lisa

Your cards are gorgeous. Love the effect you have here.

I had the same problem with blogger/google last night too - something about me needing to confirm I wasn't a robot!!! What???!?!?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love Jules xx

Stunning results Lisa!
I really like the way that you make your projects from the gound up, as I try to do myself.
Kits *& bought embellishments have their place but YOU don't need them!
Your creations are more beautiful without.
