Summer is on Its Way!

At least we do hope we have a summer. We are still waiting on spring in Oklahoma, but this week, spring may be here at the latter part of the week. First of this week our lows were in the 20s and 30s. Thursday we are suppose to have 77° weather. Happy dance!

I would like to introduce you to one of Rick St. Dennis MFA new images, Été. Été is the French word for summer and I do hope that she looks summery.  I love roses, but unfortunately my green thumb does not include roses. I do try every year to grow them.
 

This little piece of art was simple to make. I colored Été with Copics (my E11 did mess up) and added Spicas for a little glitter. Stampin’Up! card stock was used for my base and die cuts. The background designer paper is from my stash. I have no idea who the designer is, but I did purchase it at Hobby Lobby. Next came the dies cuts. I cut with Spellbinder’s Les PappillionsTwo and Grateful Lattice. These two dies were introduced at the past CHA 2013 show. Rose and leaves are from my stash and accented with Crystal Stickles. Pretty easy, huh? (I will have her posted today in my Zibbet shop.)
 

Été will be entered in the following challenges:
Through the Craftroom Doors – Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time – Anything Goes

That’s it for this beautiful Tuesday. I hope to see you again soon.
