Today is the first day for links to Rinda's 2016 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt. It's a favorite summer activity for me, and usually by this time, I have quite a few of the items checked off. Not so much this year, but I do have three.
The first one is #8: A drawing, art project, artistic photograph, greeting card . . . created by you. I've actually made quite a few cards since the beginning of June, but here's my most recent one, and an entry to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
I used a new-to-me Simon Says stamp set called "Spring Flowers," embossed in white and watercolored with my Zig Clean Color markers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's "Painted Petals," white embossed on a scrap of black cardstock.
I added a few rainstones from Papertrey Ink, and mounted the watercolor piece onto some Raspberry Fizz cardstock and then onto a white card base.
Next for the scavenger hunt is #10: a bicycle. We took our first bike ride of the season last week, riding 12.5 miles on the Erie Canal path from the Brighton town park to the Pittsford Dairy where we indulged in homemade ice cream cones. I had black walnut, and it was delicious!
Check out my very cool basket which was a gift from Sarah last year. It's made byt the Nantucket Basket Company, and I love the shape of it. I also have a new seat this year, also a gift from Sarah. Much more comfortable than my old one.
Last for June, is #20: Someone laughing.
Our friends, Pete and Arlene, were here for dinner Monday night. I wish you could hear Arlene's laugh. It's positively infectious! I'm not sure what the story was, but there was lots of laughing, and I quickly got in a few shots.
