Summer Lovin'

Summer Lovin! Well ... I am not so sure about that. The temperature here in Melbourne today has been about 16 degrees celcius (approx 60 degrees F). Not exactly favourable for any sort of summer 'sport'.
But, I have been very inspired by all of the 'Summer' challenges on at the moment. So, I turned the heating up to 22C (72F) put on a T shirt and made this card.
The family have been complaining about how hot the house is, but I simply replied "Take off some layers - can't you see that I am making a card" They just don't seem to get the connection.
You all understand. Don't you?

  9. Gorgeous coloring! I'd love to know what colors you used to do her hair. Your post sounds familiar to me...I'm always cold so I've usually got my heater on at work even during the summer- everyone pretty much thinks I'm crazy but it feels good to me :) Love the card!
