This Dream Valley challenge is all about Summer & is being sponsored by Squiggle Stamps & the DT were lucky to be given an image to colour of their choice. I chose Miss Evie Flower Power & coloured her with Promarkers. The papers I used were from Wild Rose Studio Bella paper pack. I edged them all with TH Distress Ink Dusty Concord & Spiced Marmalade. The flourish is a Sissiz die. The birdhouse & fence are Marianne Creatables, again coloured with DI. Evie is mounted onto a shape I cut out on my Robo, added a little gauze & ribbon from stash.I placed the flowers so it hopefully looks like she is carrying a garland of flowers. Placed a few more in corner too. The sentiment is an old QVC one, coloured with DI.
This is a scheduled post as I am still away on holiday. If the internet is not too slow, I will try to find challenges to enter, but it is very hit & miss.

Xmas in July

This week over at Divas is Xmas in July & is sponsored by Pink Gem. This is one of my favourite stamps & I have used it loads over the years & this year will be no exception. He is called Robin with Mistletoe & coloured with Promarkers. The papers are Papermania from last year. I mounted him onto Labels 2 Nesties & edged all the edges with Pinflair Snow Dust. Folded a ribbon & added that to the side. Sentiment from stash, bought at a local craft shop a long time ago.
I am late posting this as blogger did not schedule correctly & I was away for a few days from the house & did not take my computer.
