I'm Dreaming of Summertime

That's the theme over at Charisma this week, so have a break from the Chrissy card making and think Summer - oh flip-flops & sunglasses, I remember you!

I wanted to use a summer image on my card & also summery colours, and found these lovely yellow & brown digi papers from Summertime Designs. My cardstock is SU! Whisper White & Chocolate Chip, the sentiment is from my very talented friend Lisa and I've just added some SU! chalks to colour it and the sunflower chipboard is from my stash.

I'm also entering my card into the Anyone for Anya challenge as I've used their lovely sketch.

Our theme this week was set by DT member Karen, who sadly has had to step down from the DT, we'll all miss you hun & sorry you're leaving us, but that means there is a DT call up on the blog, so hop on over for a look. We're a lovely team (even if I do say so myself LOL) so if you fancy applying we'll look forward to hearing from you.

In the meantime have a lovely Sunny day (easy if you're on the other side of the world) but for us UK girls, I think we'll have to pretend - it's raining again!!

How cool is that, to see a summercard in December! While we here in the Netherlands are eating "pepernoten and speculaas" and waiting in tension for "Sinterklaas" and we see only Christmascards on the blogs, this card is a relief! ;) Love the brown and yellow together, it reminds me of sunflowers! Nice theme in these cold winter days!!

Love from AFA!
