June already!

How did that happen! June and the Jubilee holiday are upon us, and as my son so helpfully pointed out (whilst we were discussing his astronomy homework and the transit of Venus across the sun this week) it will soon be the longest day and then the nights will start drawing in. What a thought!

Anyway I am keeping up with my 365 journalling just about. Didn't fill my May page completely but said all I wanted and have made a start on June which as you'll see is suitably Jubilee themed. I am feeling rather old though as I can remember the silver jubilee - much better than the golden one oddly but maybe it is just my age?

And in a fit of enthusiasm and still playing with red, white and blue I have already made my alphabetica postcard swaps for the month - letters K and L. Amazing what a long weekend can do for you.

I used distress inks for K - direct to paper and stamped for the key side and wrinkle free distrees technique on the back.

The front of my L card has some inky embossing and a bit of celebratory glitz. The reverse is painted with acrylics and stamped with lots of colours and letters.
