Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and for this one we would like to see projects showing your favourite of either Summer or Autumn (and you must say why please).

I have chosen summer.  I'm not too keen on it being really hot, but I do love this time of year for the flowers being in full bloom and gardens being at their best.

I have used a Julie Hickey stamp set called Sunflower bee.  I started out by having a play with some texture stamps from Stampin Up in shades of yellow and brown.  The hexagon stamp comes with the set and also the bee which I first stamped on the card and then again to colour and cut out, then just stuck to the card without having to cut round the tiny legs etc.  If you're wondering why I didn't just colour it on the card, it was because I had some blotches from one of the stamps to cover.

I stamped the sunflower with a brown Memento ink, coloured with copics and fussy cut that out too.

I hope you can join us during the fortnight and the sponsor this time is:
