Summer Afternoon

Good morning!
It certainly feels like a spring morning, if not a summer afternoon today! Let's hope it stays like this, though I suspect it's likely to snow again at some point lol!

Anyway, here is the card I have made using the Summer Afternoon free Hostess set...

Would you believe that this is the first time I have inked any of the set? Ashamed..... 

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I've used some Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

Cardstock - Whisper White
Designer Series Paper - Neutrals
Stamps - Summer Afternoon, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Inks - Soft Suede, Crumb Cake

  7. Great image for a retirement card Lizy. Love the monochrome effect too.

    I think you're luckier with the weather than us. Snow lying this morning and snowed on and off most of the day. Funnily enough the more it snowed the more it disappeared till not much left except a lot of water!!
