Here comes summer

Hasn't the weather been wonderful this past week? Lovely sunshine - albeit a little too hot for me - along with some thunderstorms at night. It's cooled down a bit now, more to my sort of temperature.. lol.

Today, I'm going to spill the beans on a little secret I've had.... I've been chosen as a Design Team member for My Time to Craft !! I got an email this last week from Wendy, who is part of the blog, offering me a place. Well,  of course I said yes please!

I love doing Challenges - not for anything other than the fact that I didn't do them for so long, and I now find it's a way of using my stuff that I've had for a while and never used! They challenge me, and that is what I like. I love sketches, themes etc.. you name it, I'll give it a go. And I'm sure you'll find the regular ones I take part in, up and down my blog!

So.. without further ado, here's the first card that I've made for the Challenge blog. The theme was Here Comes Summer.. and this is my take on it.


This image is a lovely one, don't you think? So reminiscent of my children having a day on the beach. Usually their buckets were full of starfish, where especially my youngest, would pick them up out of the rock pools and take them back to the shoreline.. I think at one count she'd been busy all day collecting them up and putting them in a line that she ended up with about 30!


The button on the flower is one I got from a great little craft shop a while ago. How cute are they? Slightly more dimensional than I would have liked, but still pretty.

Well... I must get on - lots of work to do before I can relax a little on Wednesday.

Happy Crafting everyone!!
