Summer Hummingbird

  Another beautiful spring day in NW Florida!!! The birds are singing, my doors and windows open and puppy is ready for her walk....just need a bit more daylight for the walk and waiting to see if one of my neighbors wants to walk with us this am.
  Going to be a busy day - a bit of yard work, a bit of house work and some craft room time (I am still trying to finish off all the Christmas ornaments I overloaded myself with at Christmas time.....about a dozen left to decorate and I am determined to finish them before putting them away...course its starting to look like it might be Christmas again before I get them done....)
   Also have a softball game tonight too....
   Todays card I made for this months release challenge over at Flourishes - the challenge is 'summer' and/or the colors from the inspiration photo - pinks and greens. Check out the challenge here - www.flourishes.org/blog/
   The stamps I used are all from Flourishes - the main image I did with watercolors and koh-i-noor pencils. I layed down the first layer of color over it all and the background with the watercolors and then finished it off with the pencils
  The phrase at the bottom is one of my newer sets from Flourishes - I love the combination of big and small text and all the interchangeable phrases.
   The pinks of the image and paper and ribbon really do match nicely but somehow in the photo they look just a bit 'unmatchy'
   I used a bronze viva decor pen and a small bee charm for accents.
    All for today - time to get shoes on and let puppy take me for a walk.....
           Take Care
