Paint Party and Summer of Color Week 5

Hi, First I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dearest Mum, she is 87 today and is much loved by us all.
 

For Paint Party Friday am showing one of my Practice Sketches as The Encampment from last week is making ultra slow progress due to the fact we have been out a lot this week with one thing or another and when we get home I drop off to sleep...............its an age thing.............lol


These are the colors of next weeks Summer of Color (week 5) only one more week to go.  The icecream flavours are called ' Wild and Reckless' they are such fabulous colors

and this is my creation, yep some more houses, mainly because I love them, but this time with a twist to reflect the icecream title.



Products used:  A Manilla tag, Gesso, Distress Inks and Multi-matt Medium.  Stamps by Teesha Moore, Lindsay Mason and Kaisercraft.  Added to a digi frame from Pic Monkey and a digi mouse, least I think its a mouse......................

Many thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting PPF and another lot of thanks to Kristin for bringing us Summer of Color.  Both fantastic sites to belong to and everyone who takes part has the greatest time, including me............

Thank you for popping in and making my day with your lovely comments.  Enjoy the weekend and lets hope the sun shines for us all.  Take care, hugs Annette xx
