Happy Days

Oh how I love warm summer days. I am a real sun freak - a careful sun freak - but still a sun freak. 
There is nothing better than being outside on a warm summer day and I only have 5 more months to wait!!! 
Yes, in Melbourne Australia, we are well and truly in our WINTER months. 
So ... I really really like seeing all of your happy sun shining cards while I am rugged up with the heater on. 
I love seeing all the bright and colourful papers as I dash to the car in the rain to drop the kids somewhere. 
I am thrilled when I read about the warm summer days that most of you are having while I am deciding whether or not I will put on 3 or 4 layers of clothing today. 

But, through the power of positive thinking I decided - if I cant beat you up, I mean, if I can't beat you, then I should join you.
Sassy Cheryl had this cute little image of 'Sassy Sally in her inner tube' and I am her!!! or at least I want to be her. 
I want to be her so so badly. 
Here is my happy summer card to wish you all happy summer days, while using my happiest teeth chattering voice.
Don't forget to pop on over to Sweet Stampin cause we are having a Ribbon and BOWS challenge. Note my BOW on this card. (Is twine ribbon?)
