It's Summer...

Well it is on my card, just a shame the same can't be said for the rest of the United Kingdom!! We must of had rain everyday for the last two weeks, not all day but on and off so you can't judge what to do when.

I have wanted this Elisabeth Bell image for ages but just couldn't see what I would use it for until I got asked to make a card for three year old non identical twins, I knew immediately this image would be perfect. It is also especially perfect as the girls will be celebrating their birthdays on holiday.

I have used the sketch from this month's Elisabeth Bells World Challenge but unfortunately I thought it finished today but it was yesterday so missed out on entering that.
