Summer Days

Ah! summer days.  I love them, but not with all of this humidity.  The humidex has been quite high these last few days, with temps reaching in the 90's with the humidex factor, but I have not turned the air on yet.  Next week looks quite a bit cooler with temps starting out in the high 50's for Monday, the slowly rising to the 70's be weeks end.

Okay enough about the weather, that's really not why you stopped in.  This weeks bellariffic challenge was a sketch - and a very easy one at that.  Here is the sketch we had to follow:

and this is my card

The stamp I'm using if from a set of four called Summer Days.  I just love this set, it is so versatile, I have used it many times and will continue to do so.  Image was stamped on bella's bestest paper and then I coloured the image using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.

Designer paper is from MME- vanity fair.  Finished of with a bit of glitter on the flowers, a piece of twine made into a bow and then added a button.

Emily is giving away some bella bucks just for leaving a comment over at Bloggabella, so be sure to stop by and see all the other gorgeous creations for this weeks challenge and leave a comment.

Next week our theme is "FOR MY SISTAHS - FRIENDSHIP", I know there a lots of Stamping Bella images that would fit this category.  You can email your entry by thursday night to Emily for it to be posted on bloggabella on friday.

Thanks for stopping in today and love that you leave comments.  Have a wonderful weekend.

See you again real soon,

I love a simple sketch like this. It's a nice way to show off a beautiful image and still have some designer paper to play with. Your string bow and button is the perfect sunny day embellishment. Your temps there go from one extreme in the winter to the other extreme in the spring and summer. I hope you can enjoy a cooler, less humid weekend.
