Time Out Challenge #111 Holidays optional twist of a one layer card 
I went for summer holidays and not a one layer card

I am batch making birthday cards to give to my family when I see them in a couple of weeks. It’s been a lot of fun digging out some of my older stamps to play with and colouring them with the mix of watercolours and acrylics that I now use lol! I have been meaning to get some of these older stamps out to play with for a while now and I’m so glad that I finally have. 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
