Honest, it IS summer!

Hiya folks!

I hope you aren't suffering with all the weird weather of late? We have had so much grey stuff recently, the veggies are suffering for it. Not many bees about either. And here we are slap bang in the middle of our great British Summer! Now there's a laugh. We do happen to have some muggy sunshine today though which is a blessing. At least I can get some washing dry on the line!

Speaking of summer, our challenge at Delicious Doodles this fortnight is:

Summer Holidays

This is our last challenge for the summer, as we are taking a well deserved break while all the kids are off and we all head off for some jollies. BUT we will be back in September! We are also losing two DT members, Claire and Jodi. I am sorry to see you go ladies. I've really enjoyed working with you, and have loved your fabulous creations. Wishing you both well in the future!!

For my card today I have used 'Rosalee':

When I think of summertime, I think of the gorgeous fragrance of the lovely roses in the garden. My Mum has always had a bed of Roses, and I remember sniffing those in the summers as a child. Of course I have my own now, which are just coming into their own, albeit a bit late and a bit bedraggled after days of rain.

Anyhow. The card. Made using printed dp's from Just So Scrappy, with inked edges, and some pink bazzil, a huge ribbon bow, gems and pearls.
Rosalee was previously coloured and scanned, so all I did here was print her out again. Cheat huh??!

So there you have it!

Hope you can join us in our last challenge of the season.
