It is Summer - honest!

We'll it's warm enough but I still can't see the sun shining! To make me feel a little more summery, I made this card for my pal, Janet, over at the RAK club. The image is Flo - a freebie digi from Pollycraft, and I coloured her with my promarkers. Isn't she gorgeous???
The papers are a mix from Pink Parfait (Forever Friends) and Henbury Lane. The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are from ebay (they come with stalks on them but I always seem to cut them off!) I've followed a recipe from Creative inspirations: 5 flowers, 3 papers, 1 ribbon and I've also entered it into the ABC challenge: A is for August.
I'm also in the middle of another project that I'm slowly completing, bit by bit... I can't wait till it's finished and I can show you all. I hope it's worth all the effort.
Anyway, I'd better be off. I'm taking the two littl'uns to an activity afternoon at the library :-)
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
