Summer's Here!!



Finally!  We're in the middle of a week of warm sunny weather - so sunny, in fact, that I had ginormous shadows on my card so I had to take another photo inside - here's the outside version:


Hmm. It's a lot sharper, isn't it?  Well, take your pick.  Or pic ;)

Anyway, the challenge at The Paper Players is Summer Holiday


I'll be spending my summer holiday in my garden, as I've already had three holidays so far this year.  I'm looking forward to seeing all the vegetables and flowers we've planting actually growing and flowering!

The inspiration card for the Muse challenge this week comes from Laurie Willison:


I used some more of my giveaway flowers from Loll, some stitched ribbon and the black sentiment (Hero Arts CL611 Many Birthday Messages).

  13. A brilliant card, Shirley! Literally!! I struggle about those outside pictures, too. I used to only take photos outside b/4 I got a couple of proper lights, but honestly I usually still like the sunlight shots the best, shadows and all. The question is, which one do you like best?
