Lazy Days of Summer

Happy Thursday Everyone! Well, we are in the middle of a heat-wave here in Quebec. Yesterday, the two younger kids and I pretty much stayed in and kept cool. It was 35 C but factoring in the humidity, it was 41 C. Much too hot for me that is for sure. My older son is taking a sailing program and was on the lake. I was a little worried about him but he said that it was much cooler being on the water.

I haven’t had the chance to do much crafting. The other two keep me pretty busy but I did manage to make this simple  card using the Whiff of Joy’s June stamp kit. I love the fact that it comes ready to use and in a nice little CD case, not to mention the gorgeous images.

I really love the new Websters Pages die-cut package that I bought. I cut the card base with my Creative memories circle system and just layered on this gorgeous die-cut. I colored sweet Willow from the stamp kit and paired her up with this tree stump that is from the 2009 collection. I stamped the sentiment and punched two holes at the top of the card and threaded some gingham ribbon through. It was fast and simple and perfect for Summer!

I have had quite a few emails asking me how I photograph my cards. I hope to get around to answering that soon. One tip I can give you is to take your pictures outside when possible. You can’t beat natural light. This picture was taken on my backyard deck.

Just a quick note to let you know that Wags ‘n Whiskers is having a DT call! You can find out all about it right ~here~.

Hi Jeanette,

This one is gorgeous, I love this reading girl! I also really read a lot, so this appeals to me! Beautiful die-cut you used, it fits perfectly and the ribbon is cute! With the tree log she's sitting on, it gives it a foresty feeling, very nice!

Hugs, Wendy
