In the midst of Autumn I give you...Summer!

Hello friends

Yes, in the midst of Autumn I give you...
It is in fact a die set called Summer Canopy, part of the Four Seasons Collection
designed by Lene Lok.
The idea here is that you can purchase the tree die, appropriately called 'Tree'(!)
and select seasonal canopies, Summer, Spring, Autumn and Winter.
Tree can of course be used on it's own and add your own leaves, blossom etc.

Summer Canopy die set is three pieces, the canopy,
the chair and swing.
I die cut from white card and stencilled through the die and added
more distress ink for depth and colour -
a technique I really should remember to do more!

Mounted onto white card mat (6 x 6 Matting Basics) and white card base.

Final touches is the Anniversary Wishes sentiment, from one of my typed sheets
available on the website here and little flowers from the Swallow and Heart die set.

It is nice that you can see the tips of the tree branches through the canopy.

Summer Canopy is available to pre-order on the website here.
Tree is also available to pre-order and can be found here.

Lovely comments on yesterday's post - Friday Die Day,
the Note Holder - thank you.  Ann suggests it could be a possible 
charity kit and I think that's a jolly good idea...stay tuned!

This weekend I'm camping out in my cabin!
Well, not quite but I do need to put in lots of hours so fingers crossed
that all goes to plan.

Take care friends, hoping the weather brightens this weekend
and perhaps we do feel a little bit Summery!
