August has always been one of my least favorite months of the year.
The summer's grown long-drawn-out and tired. The flowers are gasping for rain and cooler weather.
I am longing for fall.
Late this afternoon, this goldfinch was enjoying the remains of our echinacea.
Still, these late summer days have plenty of birthdays ahead, so I've been creating a few cards.
This first one...for our mailman...uses my Hero Arts dandelion, stamped in brown and colored with dusty blue chalk. I added a bit of leftover ribbon from my scrap box.
This is my first card using the new Momenta paper pad. Every page looks like a splash of watercolor! It's almost too pretty to use. I decided to do a bit of calligraphy and add this dandelion from Stacy Stamps. (Why is it we hate to see dandelions in the yard, but they look so pretty and carefree on a card?)
This next card was made entirely from scraps and leftovers.
Thanks for visiting!
Come back soon!
