Summer time fun....

I have not been the best blogger this summer...we have had the best weather these last couple of months and I am so enjoying every minute of it. Once fall hits you tend to hibernate a little more, so that gives me lots of time to make cards! I have some wonderful images that I can hardly wait to colour up! I am seeing so many of you getting a great start to your Christmas cards. That is something that I need to do.

I received this adorable hAnglar from a special blogging buddy..... I fell in love with this little girl riding her bike. I have been playing alot with distress inks...and sooo loving them.

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Thank-you so much for popping in and visiting, I know how hard that can be this time of year!

    I have not got any, but I did buy some stamped images off Ebay and they are lovely. The stamps themselves ar like gold dust here, don't know if youhave more luck getting them.
    Lovely colours of the papers you have used, and the distress colouring is gorgeous. Debbiexx

  6. This is so pretty, such a cute image and love the flowers tucked into the ribbon. Enjoy the sunshine, we're not having that much of it at the moment but I don't like it too hot so I don't mind too much. The flowers are looking good, hope yours are too. Marianne x

  13. Wow, love this little hanglar on the bike. What a darling card and such great colors. Just love the flowers. Bought you a little scrapbooking gift at one of the stores I hopped in. Think you'll love this new product. I'll be home late tomorrow. Will call you on Tuesday. Love the distressed inks. You'll love what I've learned down here at some amazing stamping stores. See you on Tuesday.
