End of Summer


I'm thinking today's weather is about as close as we get to real winter weather here in the tropics. Its overcast the breeze is cool and there is some misty rain that has been falling all day. It's probably around 26 degrees C (approx 78 Deg F) here today which is by no means cold but it's enough for me to pull on the jeans and get myself comfy in the craft room.

I relocated my craft room yesterday so that the boys could have their "playroom" back again and camp in there over the school holidays. While re sorting all my supplies in to the new room I came across some pretty pink floral paper that was free from a magazine and decided to build today's card with it.

The image is "End Of Summer" from Mo's Digital Pencil Too.

I coloured this sweet image with a mix of copics and Lyra Water Colour Crayons.

For the corners and the bottom strip I stamped a flower from Stampin Ups Flower Fancy set on to Whisper White cardstock and coloured with copics.

Very pretty paper, and the image is adorable. I like the way you framed the image with the sentiment, I sometimes struggle with where to but the sentiment. Envious of your "winter"!
