New PS set- summer lovin

Hey all, I am to a happy start today :D saw one my card as a Winner, and a was yesterday, but seen it now.
I am sharing the ones I made yesterday in 2 posts, the backlog is almost finished, as I decided not to share one of the cards, wasn't very happy with it.
 The first one is made using the new stamps which I got delivered 2 days back from Paper Smooches, I won the last blog hop, and chose these. Since I am taking coloring bit seriously, I thought of taking the outline stamps. It is the summer lovin set, it has many small stamps, so I cannot mess up too much while coloring I guess ;)

I stamped and fuzzy cut the hibiscus, and colored using the colorQ palette. These hibiscus, reminds me of my hometown - Hyderabad. all my family and friends are basking under the sunshine, and I am here still bundled up in winter gear....not fun at all.
Then I wanted to add some color to the background of the flowers, after fiddling in between blue and yellow, chose the yellow. I am really tired of my grey days here, haven't seen sun in many straight days. So subconsciously a yellow background. I chose the chalk pastels for this, scribbled on the card, and used my finger to blend in.
After adding the flowers using foam adhesive, I stamped the sentiment from the same set. I decided to add a smily face, also from the same set.
A few matching rhine stones to finish off.
Oops, almost forgot to mention the chevron chipboard at the bottom.
It gives me a spring/summery only if I can feel that sunshine, it would be brilliant.

Before I finish, sharing 2 different types of flat breads, which I made yesterday night for dinner.

This is a savory one - called methi parantha (Fenugreek leaves flat bread) - a dash of caraway seeds to enhance the taste - my kiddos, who are not into Indian food seemed to like this one.

This one is a sweet one  called puran poli - stuffed with cooked and mashed lentils with molasses. My daughter like this, and so do I.. I guess I am getting homesick. I usually cook something which I don't cook often when I get homesick :)

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
