Summer blooms - Summer -Colour Palette-Dark Purple, Lavender, Cranberry, Light Blue, Sky Blue - Anything Goes - Summer - Lavender & Lace

I have been busy as I made some Christmas cards which you can also see on my blog. I entered them after this one:) I have also been a bit blue. My mom is taking a little turn for the worse. I think she is losing her ability to know how to cut her food up and so I make sure I am with her for at least 4 days of the week, after my work. It is just sad to see someone succumb to Dementia. On top of it my beautiful Doggie, Katie, Passed away. She was 13 (a Black Lab) and she was my peaches and cream. I thought she would last longer but she had a stroke and the vet said it was the best thing and I know he was right. So I have been away from making cards but I tried for some summer. It has been way too hot here. It is weird to say that we are looking forward to a chilly 27 tomorrow. Anyway, On this card I stamped and embossed the hyrdrangea 3 times and coloured it in tombow markers on watercolour paper. I cut each one out and raised it on background white paper. I tried to use lace and stamped on top of it for the background but it didn't quite turn out as I wanted. I had some left over lace which I used for the border after I used my dye inks. May the summer get a little cooler and a little rainy here:)

This is my beautiful Katie...All Smiles
