Perfect summer day!

Oh a glorious summer day with beautiful sunshine and warmth in the high 70's, clear skies for miles and a little time to sit in a bird sanctuary area to watch a demonstration on beginning watercolor painting. Later went downtown to the river with a few thousand community friends to watch the annual Rubber Duckie race. Yes, we all cheer them on as they float by in hopes that the first one across the finish line is ours with the lucky # we have purchased.

In between all of the summer fun I have been trying to learn more about the workings of this blog and work on a few birthday presents and other things I would like to get in the mail. So some quick little projects to share...This first one is all scraps to make a 4x4 notecard. I used paint jewels on the sunflower to give it some depth.

I picked and dried a few more made a little 4x4 incorporating them. Used sparkle modge podge to attach them. The background is from DCWV's luxury stack of pearlize paper--a beautiful RAK sent to me from my friend Fern/Moosemama-thanks a bunch it makes a beautiful backdrop for these flowers!

Here I added flowers to a glassine envelope.
I know that this seems like a lot for a envie but I will use it when I am enclosing a special note that is "the gift" I am sending. I will tie the envie with a sheer gold ribbon.
I hope the summer sun is good to you and the flowers are blooming and bringing joyful colors to your corner of the world...Jan
