The Heat is On - at Crafty Little Fairies

Time for a new monthly challenge at Crafty Little Fairies today and this time the theme is Summer.

Apparently it is the hottest day of the year , so far, today - so we couldn't have picked a better dy to launch our new challenge.

For my card I have dug deep in to my old stash and found this great 'Diva' stampp from Joanna Sheen which, I think, is just perfect for a bit of flat colouring…….when you want to colour but don't want to faff  around with shading!

It's also unusual for me to add sentiments to my cards, but I just had to add this one as it just says it all really. Now that the summer is coming along we really want those weekends to last don't we?

There are lots of summer related posts over at the Crafty Little Fairies blog with a surprising range of themes, so it is well worth a little look for some gorgeous inspiration.

Meanwhile, I am going to enter in to some other great challenges as usual, and here they all are:

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will pop over to Crafty Little Fairies to join in with the fun.
