Here Comes Summer!!!! I Wish

Good Morning, well as the title of my post suggests, summer hasn't made an appearance yet here in Scotland, well we did have a few days sunshine in April and a day this month.  So maybe that's all we are going to get!!!!!.    Anyway I digress,  I wanted to show you a card I made with lovely summer colours in the hope that it would bring out the sun, but Mr Sun's not listening to me.

I've used sweet Tilda with banner from the 2010 Christmas collection, I think she is suitable for any season, such a pretty little thing.  I've coloured her with pro markers, cut her out and sat her on a blossom nesti. My papers are a mixture of Papermania, DCWV, Basic Grey and MME.  The full recipe for my card is below this post.

I would like to enter Tilda into the following challenges:

The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge:  The theme this week is Summer
The Shabby Tea Room challenge: Have a pictorial inspiration theme this week and an extra of either Spots or Gingham.
A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge: Would like to see Ribbons and Bows this week
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Would like to see Summer (so would I girls. lol)
Fab n Funky Challenge: Would like some Summer Loving this week
Bearly Mine Challenge:  Would like to see Summer this week.
Deep Ocean Challenge:  Would like to see Flowers this fortnight
I Love Promarkers:  Anything Goes this week.
Crop Stop Challenge:  This week it's a summer inspiration theme along with a wonderful blog hop.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, please leave me a few words and let me know you stopped by. Have a great day.

Haven't seen this Tilda finished yet and you've done her beautifully! So sweet and nice fresh colors! Great job Suzi!

Barb Hardeman said...

Oh, I'm so glad that you used this Tilda! I've forgotten just how much I like her. Love the softness and layers you've used here and the flowers are gorgeous! Could I send you a little of our sun? Perhaps you would like some of the triple digit temperatures to go along with is! A day or two of coolness would surely be a wonderful change for us!
