Hi Friends! Well, I have to tell you – weather (in Canada) is weird. Last week, the tail end of June, I had to light the wood stove because of the cold, damp weather. This past weekend and right through the week we are in the high 30’s – soooo HOT! It’s as if Mother Nature flicked a switch and said: “Ok, East Coast of Canada – you can have summer now.” I am a warm weather girl and as much as I love the beauty of snow in winter, the cold makes me grumble. So despite the HOT temperatures, I shan’t complain. I did learn today though that planting veg in the garden with the 34′ sun isn’t a good idea. I suddenly felt quite ill and it occurred to me that (a) I should have a hat on and (b) I need to plant earlier in the morning. So I had a cold shower and skid-daddled down to my stamp studio, which by the way, is really cool. I often wear a sweater in my studio, even in the summer. Except today. LOL
So let’s get onto today’s cards, which is very summery! I used the new “Pop of Petals” bundle as well as the new “Detailed With Love” stamp set. Super easy card to make. Markers direct to the stamps is one of my favourite things to do, and I just pulled in the colours with my blender pens.

White – 4” x 5 ¼” plus scrap piece for butterfly
Bermuda Bay cardstock in half to create card base.

Blender Pen to pull colour into flowers and leaves.
