Summer Bounty

July Anything Goes Summer

Summer means many things to many different people. For me it means quite a few things, boating, vacation, and fresh local fruit. Having just received my stamp set with peaches from MayMay Made It I decided to CASE a card she showed when the stamps were released. What is more summery than fresh fruit? This is my version of what she did. I used Inktense pencils to colour it and deliberately left in the lines so it would look fuzzy as a peach would do. Using another of her stamp sets called Tiny Faces I added a face underneath the sentiment. I also added some bubble gems here and there hoping they look like drops of water. Although the local peaches aren’t in yet, they are certainly something we are looking forward to. Our season is slow as we’ve had much cooler weather than last year but hopefully the local ones will arrive soon. The strawberries are delicious so far, but I heard from the blueberry farm that his crop is not going to be ready until August. As well he wasn’t sure if he would have his normal crop quantity so we hope we can get our usual large order and freeze them for the winter months. Have a fun weekend and thanks for taking a look.

    1. CASEing a card is fun, but one has to add something that is different too. I thought the face would give it a cheeky feel. Glad you like it.
