Summer's here!!


Well on my blog anyway!!  This is my entry for Passion for Promarkers this week (challenge 51) who have a theme of Strawberries and Cream - yum!!  I have a bit of problem using red promarkers  as the colour is so deep and I find it hard to get the light and shade just so!  Have to say that I was thrilled with the strawberry here (hence the close up LOL!). 
 This is another of the Slapstick range from Penny Black - I adore these images and had to buy this one - it so reminds me of my big sis when we were little!!  The colouring didn't go quite so well here and have covered up my atrocious colouring of her dress and bow with paper-piecing!!  That's why I was pleased with the strawberry!!
 The strawberry is a Magnolia accessory stamp, sentiments are from a big K&Co box that I bought years ago and paper is Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. As my flower is home-made I can also enter this into the Quixotic Paperie challenge this week.

Thank you for all your birthday wishes for my Holly yesterday-she did like her card and book!!  She's having a BBQ  late this afternoon, so fingers crossed the sun comes out!!
