Summer of Color ..Week 4

Good morning... quick post...before I go to work.. I love mornings..I am up early... but getting out of the house to be at work for 8 is really hard..No matter how ready I get the night before.. am always running out of the house at the last minute...lol..I had a conference call the other day at work.. and while I was taking notes.. doodling of course too.. liked what I did so came home and started on a bigger piece of paper.. This weeks challenge over at the Color of Summer 2012 is Strawberry Lemonade... sounds delicious doesn't it? love these colors... I so want to put my fav lime green in here somewhere yet...lol but we shall see...
It has been so hot all week..around 40c with the humidex.. then we got a wicked storm pass thru on wed.. temps have been much nicer but am so glad I took this pic of my peony because when I got home from work.. not a petal left to be seen...
Garden is doing great though.. first squash has made it's appearance.. whooo hooo!! I'm doing a nice little craft sale tomorrow too.. hoping it goes well... trying out a couple of new things that I am not quite finished... so hopefully tonight... as well as pack the van.. being there for 7 to set up... not so easy...lol
Glad that I made it before the deadline sunday to get my Color of Summer in... if you get a chance.. take a look... I haven't had a chance to get to very many this week ..
Anyways.. wishing you the loveliest of days.... and thanks for stopping by....
Kath

  4. That really turned out neat. Reminds me of something my granddaughter made me for Mother's Day. Your peony is gorgeous too, so good that you had a picture before the storm.

  7. This is lovely Kathy! I have not even started on my Strawberry Lemonade project - my mojo seems to have disappeared. Hopping around checking what all my other SOC friends are doing hoping for some inspiration :) Have a lovely day!

  9. Hey Kath, this is beautiful. I didn't know you could do such fine detaily work. Love it and I would not bother with the green, but, if you just put it here and there.
    Stay cool. No luck on those ugly plaques here and none of those pens either, they looked at me like I had 3 heads but I did finally see dominoes...
    Have a great sale, good luck.

  16. Gorgeous page, I struggled with the pink element on this colour but thoroughly enjoyed the challenge! Hope you're having a great day - Yorkshire is still covered in grey clouds and rain at the moment - ooh for a blue sky!

  20. I hope you had a nice craft show! Pretty Strawberry Lemonade design. The peony is perfect, too; it's a shame the storm blew it away so soon.
