Summer Heat

So many blogs have jumped on the summer waggon, that I decided to do the same.
So here is a summery card, with bright and sunny colors.

And on the inside:

The papers are all BG papers. The stamp is a Penny Black stamp, that felt very summery to me. I colored it with crayons to get the naive look of a summer afternoon. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the "ribbons". A final touch of doodling finished my card.

This card participates in the following challenges:

Tuesday Trio - Sketch and theme
Cooking it up - Sketch from another blog, Yellow & Stitch
Freshly Brewed - Summertime

Adding a link to your comment

I'm writing this post mainly for myself, cause I keep forgeting this code, and it's really usefull.

If you want to add a link to your comment, simply use this code, onlu without all the spaces. The only space is between the first "a" and the "href".

< a href = "link" > text to click on < /a >

It's really this easy and it works!


Working with my niece

Yesterday, while I was just finishing up on some cards, my niece came back from kindergarden (she's five y/o).
Whenever she finds me working, she asks to sit by my side and watch.
Of course, it never ends with just watching, cause she's a very touchy-feely kind of person. She has to touch, to feel. So she picks up papers, glue, embelishments, sometimes even tools I have on the table...
And then I asked her if she wants to help me create a card.
She loved the idea, and this is the card we made.

Who's afraid of colors?

You know how sometimes you start making a card or a layout, only to end up with something completely different than what you initialy saw in your mind?

That's this card's story.
I started out with a sketch and a color scheme, only to find - halfway through - that  don't really like the color scheme...
So I started adding, and changing, and trying different colors, and came up with a card I really love.
