One of my published cards...

Happy Friday! I hope your week was fabulous! I am not around that much, summer finally arrived here and we have been spending our time outside. It's impossible to stay inside without aircondition - we live under the roof and it's too hot in here. I don't have a new card to share, but I remembered that I am allowed to share one card from my Paper Crafts publication and I thought I'd share the one that only made it a Online Bonus Project. Here is a larger photo of my card:

Love that cute little Jenni Bowlin paper with the bird. The sentiment rub-on is Melissa Frances and the other patterned paper is October Afternoon.

Yesterday I made Elderflowersirup. The elder bushes finally blossomed out and I always wanted to try that. I took photos and will share the recipe when the sirup is finished in some days.

Things I've learned today:
In the eyes of an almost two year old girl, it's essential that only her Mom turns on lights or opens the door to the kitchen. It's a disaster if her Dad does this instead...

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
