Summer? Really?!

Hello blogworld

I would get myself out there quick if I were you - it's only due to last today, then we are back to rain, rain and more rain - that's according to the on-line forecast for our area anyway!

So I wonder if our boss lady had a bit of a day when she decided over the Divas by Design that the theme this week would be Summer!

Our sponsor this week is :

I, unfortunately, was still creating in chaos - so this isn't the best card I've ever made, but I think daisies are a very popular summer thing!

So here we go - here's me card.

Front shot:

Detail of image:

I used:
Stampavie - Sarah Kay: Rose's Garden, coloured with my Promarkers

Go Kreate
Marianne Creatables - for the butterfly

Do Crafts - Tulip
I think the butterflies are Making Memories

Anything else?
Daisies from Wild Orchid Crafts
gems from my stuff

So, lets get those summery cards out and we'll see if we coax summer back then shall we?

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Sketch Saturday: Week #211

Wild Orchid Crafts: Challenge 52 - Anything Goes (the daisies are from WOC)

Papertake Weekly: 3-2-1 ( 3: daisies (or gems), 2: papers, 1: the die-cut butterfly (or the image!)
