Wetlands sunset ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was a good one and you have lovely plans for the weekend. I’ve used an older stamp set to create this card and here it is …

An A5 card 
Good to post
The summer sunset means night is beginning
The birds and grasses
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges 
A Inky Mess Challenge #21 Mixed Media Anything Goes

Summer Nights from the musical Grease
Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge 
Use more than one stamp: I used two

Things with Wings (the little wading birds)

I do really love this stamp set because it always works – every time I have used this stamp set I’ve been able to create a beautiful wetlands scene and that makes me so happy lol! Today’s scene is about that sunset too – the end of a beautiful hot summer day lol! Lots of inks were applied and applied quite neatly too – it’s the only way I can create a sunset. I’m now dreaming of sitting by the sea and dipping my toes in the water. Have a lovely weekend everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
