A Couple Floral Cards and My Deck

Hey guys!

During the summer months, I don't make as many cards because well, when ya live in Minnesota, you tend to wanna be outside anytime there isn't any snow. Lol! 

I love hanging out on my deck, enjoying the warm temps, the sunshine and lots of flowers. For those of you who don't follow me on my Instagram page, you may not have seen my colorful deck and yard. Here's a few pics.

Love sitting right here with my morning coffee!


Of course I needed an aqua bench so I painted it. Makes me happy!


Give me allllllll the flowers! And I painted the chairs too. Needed more color in my life.


My favorite pot this year.


New Squirrel-proof bird feeder. Love this thing!

 
We live on a corner lot so mowing takes me about an hour but I love to do it! So much better than shoveling, am I right?
 
So, now you can understand why I'm not down in my craft room creating as much lately. But. . . .

. . . .we've had a couple of cloudy and VERY humid days here recently, so I sat down the other day and did some coloring. First up is this beautiful daisy set from Altenew, colored with Copics. I don't usually use colored cardstock but thought the purple went really well with my Copic shades. **thumbs up**


This next one is an attempt at no-line coloring. I feel like I'm getting better at this technique. And for those of you who are afraid to try it, I say, give it a go because what I've found from the few times I've done this technique - it will look horrible until it's finished. I'm serious. I almost stopped trying on this one but persevered and I love how it turned out! This stamp is from Clearly Besotted.



Okay, I'm all set to go. . . . . . .yup, you guessed it - outside because it's sunny today - yay!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you know how much I appreciate it! Enjoy your week! ♥
