RoP Summertime and Vacation

We are having a new challenge for you over at Roses on Paper. This time it's our sweet Iris who is your hostess. She wanted us to make a card with Summer and Vacation time in mind.

Well - as you might now - Summer in Sweden is either sun and heat or rain. I can tell you this last week we have really had our share of rain. We had a heat wave the week before and everyone was thinking - Oh - it's too hot. Well - now we all are wondering - where's the sun??
So for my card I decided to use Miss Anya from the set Rain, Snow, Shine.

I coloured her with my copics and made the "sun" behind her with copics as well. Chalked around the edges with pine cone. DPs from SU. Added the letters "SOMMAR" = Summer in Swedish from the stickers I received from sweet Serena. Added flowers and the "Hälsning" = Greeting in Swedish.

Hope you like it. Also - I hope that you have not missed the news regarding Belles'n Whistles.

I also want to take the time to congratulate the ladies that made it for the Guest DT spot for August and September:

Lilian of Color to Paper
Lynda of Lynda's Scrappy Place
Krumel of Kruemels Bastel Blog

Kram and hope that you find the time to join us for this challenge.

Good Morning Anki, what do you mean saying "I hope you like it" Are you crazy? LOL I DO - I DO - I DO Like it! Very pretty card, don't feel bad, we here in NY are getting LOTS of rain this year too. =(
Hopefully we'll get some summer sun though.

Hello Friend!

Well, I just got back from my holiday in Florida! We were at Disney World for 10 days and it was a blast but the weather wasn’t too great. It rained quite a bit!
Thanks for the heads up sweetie I will start stocking the mailman now, lol! You are just too sweet and thoughtful!

I hope you are well!? I am just reading this post and the new Elizabeth Bell stamps look absolutely fab I have so much blogging to catch up on! I love your summer card with Anya it is just gorgeous as always.
Big Big hugs, t

Lovely card, love this image. I think it's great that you didn't use the girl with the sunglasses for Summer! Our summers are often wet also (well, this year we can't complain) so I think it is funny!

Beautifull flowers.

You made me curious girl, if I see the mailman I'm sprinting to the door :))) This will cheer me up, I got some bad news lately.

Big hug, Renata
