Hello there on this lovely sunny Sunday morning.
I can't believe how hot it's been and for how long here in the UK, we're just not used to it are we. I remember the summer of 76 with it's plague of Ladybirds, so I'm just wondering if we will get something similar with this heat wave, hopefully not.
Now I'm not really a football fan, sorry Brenda and Viv if you're reading this but I did watch the England match last night and they were fabulous, once the game actually got started. I'm feeling more nervous about the next game though as Croatia seem to have quite a lively team but I will be watching from the edge of my seat, as I'm sure most of the country will be too!
Onto the matter in hand now and I'd like to share a card with you that I made as a sample for one of the recent Inkylicious shows on Hochanda:
All the stamps that I've used are by Inkylicious and the sentiment is one of my favourites as it's so true. I think it's a reminder to us all that we should all stop for a while and treasure the little moments in our lives as they tend to be the ones that we look back on with the greatest affection.
I stamped the image using Desert Sand and then coloured it using Distress inks to give the image more of a water colour look. The two butterflies were printed and then fussy cut out to complete the scene. I coloured and blended the background using Spectrum Aqua pens and a touch of glycerine.
