Relax ... it's the summer

Family get togethers. Hen parties. Long Walks in the Country.
      Picnics. Cooking. Window shopping. Kindle Fire.
                     Netflix.  Pub Lunches. Vet Visits.
Those are just a few of the things keeping me from my craft room this summer :-)

 

When I need to make a card poste-haste, I go in search of a sketch 
and I found this one on a great new challenge blog  - Seize the Sketch
This was my first chance to play with my new Memento Dew Drop inks. 
I think I am going to like them... a lot!  
With a bit more practice I'm sure I will be able to produce a crisp, clear image ;-)

Challenges
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes

Stamps: Clearly Besotted 'time to relax' & 'shine bright' with matching dies. Memento dew drop inks in rosebud and grey flannel.  DP: Prima 'rosarian' and Digital ddesign essentials 'digitally smitten'. Gems.
