Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
Here we had a misty-sunny-cloudy day, but it was pleasant for walking around.
This is another of my DT pieces for Gecko Galz for July, made BC - before cast!
It is a page for my friend's calendar, which I make her each month.
The background paper is from the Isla Bonita set, breeze, and has been matted onto blue and yellow cardboard. The swallow images are from the Brave and Worthy stamp set, no 7. One has been printed onto foil, the others onto paper, fussy cut, and inked with blue DI. I added a die cut fence and a beaded branch as embellishments.
(Material list: card in coordinating colours, BG paper, images, blue ink, beaded branch, die-cut fence.)
I am inking to Manon's paper Saturdays.
This time of year is so enjoyable because of the abundance of flowers, wild and cultivated.
There is a field full of flowers - sunflowers, dahlias and irises, by the Rhine, and you are allowed to cut you own and put the money into the box. I think this is a wonderful idea, and hope that the trust that the flower growers show will not be abused.
'Only flowers that have been paid for bring friends and joy!'
And I got some more flowers for my little balcony for a good price today, by hanging about till the market was closing and cut the prices:
Mr W.B. (watch-bird) approved
And outside the bees kept be(e)ing busy
And the horses were grazing like they had nothing better to do....
Have a great weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
