Enjoy the little things

Since we arrived in Germany 3 years ago, this is the first time I’ve spent the whole summer at home,  and I enjoyed every minute of it! The kids were away in Spain for 2 weeks, so I did have a little “holiday” and partied like crazy! 🙂 Once they were back, after the cooking and the cleaning, I still managed to enjoy some lazy summer days in my garden and at the nearby lake.

I wanted to make a card to show how I felt so I tried my hand at making a scenery type card.

I first played with some alcohol inks in green and brown by dropping them on lupo paper and and blowing them with a straw.I had alot of fun! I sponged in the sky with my Ranger mini blending tool and Stampin Up ink. I them stamped the leaves from Hero Arts  with my Momento dew drop inks and added a butterfly from my stash. I stamped the flock of birds from Lavinia Stamps and added this sentiment from Newton’s Nook, which really sums up how I feel this summer!

My hubby really liked this card, which surprised me as I don’t think its my best card but that gave me the courage to share it so I hope you enjoyed this short post. Make sure you come back on the 17th for my first ever blog hop as a participant, win some prizes, and all for a good cause!

I entered this card in:

Simon says Monday challenge too- Summer Fun. Cause this is where I spent my summer, in my garden!
