Is that it?

Good morning my crafty friends and followers. I hope you are feeling well? Thankyou so much for all of your comments and well wishes yesterday - it really means so much to me!

Today I've gt a card I've put together for the Penny Black summertime challenge - I've called it 'is that it? Its a bit of a knee jerk reaction to the rubbish summer(?) we've been having. I'm hoping its at least going to be dry here today so I can take the girls out to the park in Morecambe this afternoon for a good run around!!!!

Here's my card:

Okay so here's what I've used:
penny black mouse and flower stamp
Kate Knight rose paper (tropical)
Marianne design roses (small) and WOC rose (large)
Memory box madera corner die
dreaming of summer days LOTV circular sentiment stamp.

I'm really chuffed with this one - I think the colours work well - and it certainly depicts my summer!!!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
joannasheenchallenge: Animal Antics
totallygorjuss: Leaf it in
Creative Inspirationscinspirations: Colour challenge
Whimsy stampswhimsyinspires: Summer fun

That's all for today - hopefully back with more tomorrow!

Big hugs and I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
