Tomorrow's the last day of June, and today is the first check-in for Patio Postcard's Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt. The hunt runs from June 1 to the last day of summer. It took me awhile to get going, but I have seven of the items on the 20 item list to share.
The Rosiness of Red. I spotted these beautiful roses on the Landmark House and Garden Tour the second weekend in June.
Wings: Another beautiful butterfly from the Chicago Botanic Garden.
Glorious Green: Hannah in her new yard in Wisconsin.
An Unexpected Reflection: Standing in the kitchen at the house Tracy's family rented for a week, I spotted the reflection of the lake in the oven door.
Pretty in Pink: Stunning roses at Trader Joe's
Picture Postcard Perfect: Sunset on Honeoye Lake
And finally, a card to share that I think would qualifiy for "Pedal Power." I made this card in June just before leaving for Chicago to send to Sarah's father-in-law, an avid biker. I'm quite sure he doesn't have a basket on the front of his bike, but I loved this small image from a new stamp set by Pinkfresh called "Itty Bitty Elements."
I stamped five bikes across the bottom part of the card, and then die cut a sixth bike to color and pop up in the middle. I already had a sentiment die cut in red from Papertrey's "Penned Elegance" that said, "let's celebrate." It was quite easy to trim the "let's" away from the celebrate. I added a strip of patterned paper from MFT "Black and White Stripes" paper pad and a thin strip of Pure Poppy cardstock.
I'm quite sure I'll find other candidates for some of these selections before the end of summer, but for now, it's a start. I have another 13 to find.
