It's summertime (in case you couldn't guess)

Hi all,

Martha has just set off with hubby for nursery and so Daisy and I will be together today. Yesterday, we went swimming and then the neighbour's two children came around for the rest of the day. They visit their Dad (our neighbour) a few days every week and Daisy loves playing with them. As it wasn't too nice weather yesterday, they ended up making necklaces and bracelets and getting out some craft stuff to play with, as well as taking every toy out to play with. I don't mind, as it keeps Daisy occupied.

Today we have a new challenge at our new Creative Craft challenge blog. We have some fabulous sponsors this week - Some Odd Girl and Rainbow Studios. Our challenge this fortnight is Summertime, so we want to see your summer inspired projects. I have made two cards this week. The first uses Summer Mae from Some Odd Girl. The papers are from my new Echo Park pad. I love these bright, summery colours.

This card uses Introducing Alfie by Rainbow Studios and papers by K and Co and DCWV.

Check out the wonderful projects by the rest of the DT.

Have a lovely day.
