Summer Greeting

      It's the 15th of the month and a new challenge is starting over at QKR Stampede.  Our theme is always "Anything Goes" and you can play in as many other challenges in addition to ours as you choose to enter.  Remember, while you may use any image from any company, if you use a QKR (or Eureka) image, your entry goes into a separate challenge just for those entries.  That means your chances of being a winner are much higher!

     For my DT card today, I used an image from our sister company, Eureka Stamps, called Butterfly & Daisy Flower.  The image was colored using water colors and cut with a QuicKutz large square die.  I merged the sentiment before printing the image.  I inked the edges of the image to give it some definition before layering it onto the pink CS background.  That pink CS was embossed using my old 'Linen' EF.  

     I had already decided on a very CAS design before I ever started water coloring, primarily because most of my supplies were still stored away in preparation for a move out of state.  That's now behind us and I can unpack all the crafty things I've been missing.  But first, I'm going to celebrate "National Relaxation Day" with a stroll through my garden to smell the flowers and watch the butterflies.  :-D


     I hope to see your projects entered into our challenge these next two weeks.  We love visiting your blogs and social media sites.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Oh wow this is so pretty NC! Love the beautiful pink and purple colors too! I agree with you about having a stroll through my garden and seeing my cone flowers along with those delicate butterflies floating along...I'm relaxed already! Sounds like you can start relaxing with your unpacking too! LOL Nicely done!
