As you know I am making 12 cards not tags.
I decided that my theme would be summer and butterflies....2 of my favourite themes. I also wanted to make something just to celebrate June and the joy of summer.
I made a background using Tim's bark stencil as I do not have the lines one he used. I also just dabbed my distress ink pads as I don't have his custom blend pad either. I also wanted to use my new twisted citron distress ink....I am loving his new colours!
Here is my inky background. I used watercolour paper,

Cute card Thursdays summer colours
I had a rare Thursday at home yesterday and after I finished my list of things to do I had the afternoon outside in my studio. We had wall to wall sunshine from dawn to dusk. Billy loved being outside with me.
and when it got too hot he found some shade
and as the sun went down we even enjoyed dinner alfresco.
Thanks as always to everyone who visits me here and for your kind comments. I would like to give a warm welcome my newest followers. It's great to have you here sharing my creative journey. Here's to a flaming June.
Bye for now,
