It's hot!!


Well folks...it's certainly not hot here today...it's very rainy...typical school holiday weather!! When I saw this image I just had to buy it..it reminded me of my childhoo when my brothe an I used to play in the paddling pool and he would wear his goggles and flippers...it was fun...well when you are 8!! The papers are from Imaginsce, I embossed the strip with a swirl pattern,the image is from Mo Manning which has been coloured with copics...and I added some pearls and a little sun...I knicked this idea from Peggy...thought it was brilliant and the perfect sun....I cut out a sizzix flower then snipped the ends off...cool...eh??? I have entere this card in a few challenges today:
