A quick card

Hello folks,

How's your summer going? Florida has been very toasty and H.U.M.I.D.! Step outside and you're instantly covered in 'skeeters.

I've been doing some cleaning and sorting and not much else. Took some time out today to make a best wishes and happy new home card for our maintenance guy. Sadly, because he no longer lives on site he can't be the maintenance guy. Today was his last day of working here.

So I quickly painted this card for him and his wife. The tree is a stamp from Penny Black. I used the misti to stamp it on the painted background in black paint. Didn't make a good impression but enough so I could see the shape. Then I added the foliage and extended the trunk. In my rush, I forgot to add some highlights to the tree trunk. Oh well, I'm happy with how this turned out.

That's it from me today. Enjoy your summer and stay cool.

Crafty hugs,

Nan and the Girls

  2. What a wonderful way to say farewell your maintenance man - the tree looks amazing with the lush foliage you added, and the painted landscape is lovely. Glad I'm not where you are - I'd be eaten alive by the 'skeeters (nope, doesn't make'em sound better calling them by a nickname!). Hate them, hate them, hate them!!
