Hello Gorgeous!

Good day blog friends,

Summer is here in our part of the world, seems if we have skip spring this year. We are enjoying the warmer weather but be cautious not to become too comfortable with  summer clothes at this early change of seasons. Usually we are caught off guard with a cold front in September. OK, enough talking about the weather and on to my card . I tried to incorporate a summer feeling for today with the pink and green colour combo. Love this girl’s pretty pink dress and her waistline is to die for! Although my creativity is still running low my enthusiasm for card making is better now. I would love to know what you think about this one.

Challenges:
