Summer?!!

I have been overdosing on Christmas cards ..... Santa is starting to bring me out in a rash!  The weather is dull and it is dark at both ends of my day.  I decided that I needed a touch of sunshine and this little love from Wee Stamps just screams summer!


I've kept with a very simple layout for this to show her off
Whimsy/Wee Stamps - Summer Fairy by Sylvia Zet
Papers are Nitwits/LOTV Promises pad, so pretty
Semi-circle banner done with Whimsy dies and stamps

Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Lots of colours in this - Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy, Tumbled Glass, Broken China
Tattered Rose, Pumice Stone, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade
Dusty Concord and Shabby Shutters




Hugs, Sxx

Gorgeous Squirrel. Really sweet and you've used such pretty colours.

I think I may be overdosing on Christmas cards at the moment. I need to make a birthday card for Poppy but I can't convince myself what image I want to use this year. Maybe inspiration will come tomorrow!
