Summer fun at Jane’s Doodles…

Happy Friday

Lots of pics to share today.


Muse Challenge #80

Therese inspired me to make this.

Jane's Doodles Doodle flowers II (640x427)

which I am also linking up to the challenge at Jane’s Doodles – Summer Themed Card – A little out of the box for Summer – Summer Flowers?

Jane's Doodles - Doodle Flowers II (497x640)

I used Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flower II inked with PTI, SU and memento tuexedo black inks. I used an aqua pen for the leaves.  The card front and sentiment are popped up with foam tabs. I used grey for the outline over the pink – it is a little hard to see in the pics.

I had intended to link these little book labels up to the challenge at Jane’s Doodles – but realised the challenge was for a card.

One of the things I usually do over summer is read.

Jane's Doodles Read all about it - book stacks (640x484)

I used Jane’s Doodles Read All about and Flying High (the sun). I stamped onto SU Whisper white cardstock 5cm x 9cm each with various inks and others coloured with alcohol markers. I also sponged a few with ink and sponge tool.

The back of the label has a small amount of double sided tape which will make adhering to the inside of a book easy.

I intend to use this set a lot to make labels for books – hopefully they will find their way home that way. I think my book club friends would like a little set each.

Little Miss A (9) is trying out for the school athletics team so I’m off to watch.

Have a great weekend

Thanks for stopping to visit.

  1. Beautiful card for the Muse challenge Vicki! Just perfect too for the summer challenge you are entering. I just love those book inserts too! Thanks so much for sharing, as I hadn’t heard of Jane’s Doodles – that has now changed lol! I’ve just now purchased that stamp set – SSS Sept card kit is also about books, so they will pair together really well.

  2. Vicki these are all so wonderful! Great choice of flowers on your HB card and those book labels, what can I say, I would have loved these when I was covering my text books… but I suppose it’s all computers and white boards now (recently I had an ‘aha’ moment when I found out that chalk boards are no longer in school rooms…)

    1. Thanks Therese. A lot of the kids text books are ebooks, but we still have heaps of books at our house. Ms A (9) still uses exercise books – for the time being any way. I’m thinking of labels for novels that tend to get shared around a lot more. Particularly if you want a book to come home again.

  3. Beautiful take on this week’s Muse! I love the outlines showing through the pink! So glad you joined us this week!
