Do these colors remind you of summer? They do for me. As I peruse in my garden and look at the plants happily growing, there are so many shades of all colors that washes my eyes with beauty. I love summer and all the glory it brings forth.

As you know, we were in an intensive violin summer camp all last week, and seeing all the teacher put so many hours teaching violin to such wide age group, makes me wonder how many of us really appreciate what they do. I decided to prepare some cards to send out to the teachers that taught us this past week. The Dostamper Stars 192 gave me a good color combo and I played with that for the cards. The new and fantastically beautiful Beautiful Branches got to get its first use in my craft room. I love it. The sentiment and image are all from the same set and the thinlit that is part of the bundle. I did apply texture to the back layer with the Lovely Lace TIEF, to add a bit of interest. Picture not always tells everything and in this case the very small pearls that I added to the flowers are not showing well. But in person added such a delicate detail. This card is being sent out along with a photo of the teacher with my child. It will be a lovely memento from the hectic week and I hope she will know that she is appreciated indeed.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have enjoyed it and I hope you will take a moment to visit the other Dostamper Starts that participated in today's challenge. Be well.

  1. I always love your work, Miriam, and this week is no exception. I'm glad you pointed out the tiny pearls because I originally didn't see them but it's a lovely addition. And that lacy embossing is perfect for this card. Thanks for sharing!


Thank you for Shopping with Miriam.
