FTTC82 – Summer Memories




It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC82)! It is the end of the month so we have a challenge host! Traci Major is our challenge host! Traci is challenging us to Summer Memories! With summer quickly drawing to a close, Traci wants us to reflect on one of our summer activities and create a card capturing one of our favorite memories of Summer 2010! We would love to see what you create!


We have a long summer…most likely we skip winter here, lol.  Since early summer, my mother in law’s yard has placed about 10 humming bird feeders all over the yard. It’s a small pleasure but we’ve enjoyed watching bunch of humming birds fly all summer. It’s funny that each humming bird has personality just like human … some are nice and some are not so nice :)  I just love watching them every time I walk to MIL’s yard. I will definitely plan to place some feeders next year so that they can come to my yard too!


SONY DSCI used Humming Along set to create the card. The stamped images were colored with Copic markers (Poppy Collection, Evergreen Collection, Green grass Collection & Spruce Collection). The designer paper was embellished with the scalloped edge ribbon and the same ribbon was used for the bow. To finish off the card, I embellished with pearls.




Be sure to check out other FOF’s creations!
