Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 42 – Summer Fun

Hello!!  The weeks really are flying now, and we are well into summer -well supposedly we are - in my little corner of the world it's been all seasons in the space of a week!!

This weeks Scrapbook Sister's card challenge is willing the warmer weather to make a more permanent appearance by the theme of

although not the sort of warmer weather that saw 30+ temperatures during the day on Sunday and Monday, and 25+ on Monday night - I need my sleep and it was too hot and muggy for me!!

Anyway, enough of blah blah blah and British moaning about it's too hot/too cold/too wet and onto todays card...

What can I say about this card, well I spotted this little cutie "Flying Frog" by Nellie Snellen when I went to my class at scrapping Scrapbook Sisters last Tuesday, and Karen had just unpacked the box and I just HAD to have her!!  I wanted to do something Fresh, so went for Bo Bunny and Doodlebug papers and I've been itching to use this wired oversized ribbon for a while.

The sentiment is by Kraftin Kimmie and seemed to fit the image perfectly :-)

I couldn't resist and added a bit of sparkle here and there... and a few flowers, LOL!

Halfway through fussy cutting this little Miss I was seriously regretting my decision as the wand was getting a bit wobbly, but now she's stuck onto the nestie all is well :-D

I'd love to enter these challenges please!

Thanks for stopping by, I'm looking forward to seeing your creations
