Summertime (and the living is easy)

I am really getting into doing challenges again so I checked out Penny Black Saturday and found a few surprises, they are doing a MONTHLY challenge, how great is that I might get mine in on time now. If you can remember last year I missed the deadline on a couple. New look for the blog too and to celebrate they are having a blog hop.

My idea of summertime is a picnic, and in my supply of stamps there was a Penny Black critter stamp that hadn’t seen any ink, that is sad, but I inked it with Memento tuxedo black and coloured with prisma pencil crayons and odourless  mineral spirits.Summertime also  means bright  colours and yellow is the brightest colour I can think of, the designer paper I found in my scrap box and works perfectly with cardstock from Stampin;up, daffodil delight and tempting turquoise. I didn’t have a sentiment here at the cottage so I will finish it at home.


Thanks for looking today and check out the Penny Black Saturday and create your summertime project.
