Summer is here!

 
We are having Summer here in Melbourne! But ssshhhh! Don't tell anyone just in case it goes away. Summer means 'stone fruit' to me. Yes, I said stone fruit. You know - plums, apricots, nectarines, peaches, mangoes and of course, cherries. The sort of fruit that you can eat and drip over the kitchen sink. Yummmmy! It is my second addiction while the chocolate is melting in the cupboard. Come to think of it ... cherries dipped in chocolate - now that would have made a mess of Tilda's dress.
I am entering this card in a number of challenges.
Wild Orchid #14 have given me the sketch to follow
Cupcake Inspiration #92 have some very inspirational colours
Magnolia Down Under #77 are giving gifts
Bizzy Becs #January only need 3 flowers, 2 buttons and a ribbon
Southern Girls #9 say that Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund #12 say that I can choose hot or cold (guess which one I chose? Sssshhh)
