summer time's here!

Hello everyone

I cannot believe today is the first of June - half way through another year already!  Its almost time to start making those Christmas cards again, but before I start thinking frost with red and greens, I'll take time to look out of my open window, breathe in the smell of freshly cut grass and remember it is still summer time!

I picked out this lovely stamp and some summery papers and thought I'd make something pretty, and then I saw some different paper and continued to make something else pretty, so I'll post one today, and the other tomorrow.

Here is todays make using the cute mouse from the Lili of the valley trio set.

He is a Digi stamp so I resized him, but then lightened the outline using craft artist so he had as a sketched look.

I coloured him using promarkers and a pencil to sketch in a couple of lines further adding to the sketched look. When printing him, I added the LoTV sentiment too from the sketchy wishes set.
The papers are a combination of Anne Marie designs, and a pink dotty paper I had from a Digi kit.

Flowers and lace from my stash, with a die cut label shape, all aged with distress inks and layered up.

I hope you like him as much as I do.
