Watercolored Anemones WPlus9

Sharing a card with a new stamp set. As soon as I saw the cards made with this set I knew it would be something to invest in, so here is my first card with the watercolored Anemone stamp set from WPlus9.

I used shadow inks, no distress inks on these but they will work just as well with distress inks.

(Adding one more card a little bit later..)

Have a lovely day!

Living in such a beautiful landscape, the swallows are pretty much the dominant feature in the skies these summer days and especially when the sun is setting and the temperature cools and they fly criss cross around the garden, quite a delight to watch. I am in awe of God's Creation. God speaks that way without Words as we can read in Psalm 19:
The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.

My card features a swallow. It may be a bit abstract but it just happened that way.

My second card is also inspired by nature and color. I stamped on a wine label which usually appears on the back of a bottle. I used a bird stamp from Inkadinkado.

Thanks for visiting:

Summer greetings!

 I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful summer weather!

Just popping in to share a little card and to say that although I don't post often during the summer months, I still think of you all and when life allows, I hope to be crafting again.

 Just adding a picture of how Nature can surprise at times. This is what I found in the nest last week - a mini little chicken egg which measured 3x4cm. I have placed a normal sized egg next to it, just fascinating. On opening it, it only has white in it, no yolk. And to think my chickens are two years old!

All the best wishes!
