Dreaming of Summer


I really am dreaming of summer, it is awful here, so gloomy and the wind is howling so much it woke me up this morning which I can tell you takes some doing!!

I was actually going to blitz the housework last night but I made this instead!! Never mind, I am going to have a mad couple of hours once I have got this post up.
I have used Strawberry Girl by Mo Manning which I treated myself to last night, she is soooo sweet. A very nice friend at work gave me a few sheets from the cupcake collection by papemania which was just perfect for this image. She is coloured with promarkers and the flowers and ribbon and fabby little strawberry charm from my stash. I went round the edge with stickles for a bit of sparkle.
I have made for 4 challenges all for something new which is the image and papers
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Something New plus ribbon
Pile It On - Brand Spanking New
Creative Inspirations - Something New
Sparkles Forum - New Thing
thans for poppin in, have a fab weekend.
