Summery cards

Hi there Bloglanders

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your Monday will be magnificent!  I've done my bit of crafting over the weekend and would like to share my contribution to The Play Date Challenge of the week with you:

And another card:

My heart and butterfly is actually very, very pink - don't know how it got to to this "purply" color. Anyway, this is the color scheme of this week's combo:

I love yellow so I had a lot of scraps to work with. Even the pink is right up my alley but the grey????? I used a stamp and ink in smokey grey to stamp the background for my cards.  No grey in my life - I'm kind of a primary color person and if all else fails, I revert to black or white.  In the end I loved the background most about the whole card and will be making some more without the pink and yellow.  While everything was out, I made some more cards for my stash:
And my neighbor's cat came over to help and didn't want to move when I had to take the pictures.  Now you know why the pink turned out purple! It doesn't really matter to me. I just love cats and are truly blessed to have this one in my life even if he is only a visitor.

We are still having the most wonderful summer weather in sunny SA - it is great to be outside, eat on the porch, work in the garden and just be.  I hope that when I'm looking / using these cards during our winter months, that I can regain the summery feeling.

That's it from me. Thank you for visiting my blog and please come back as I have a lot more crafting fun to share with you. Have a great day!
