Clinging on to the summer we still haven't had

Ok so I know some of you lucky people out there have hasd scorching temperatures and days with hours of glorious sunshine but here in my little corner we have had lots of rain, and muggy temperatures or dry and winter temperatures and a complete mixed bag when it comes to the weather, though today is fairly nice. Not a proper summer of lazy hot sunny days.

My card reflects what summer should be and I'm obviously not the only one who is clinging onto the hope of summer as there are a few challenges out there with a similar theme.

For my card I used one of the fab LOTV images, just how my hubby gardens only it wouldn't be pop as his choice of drink more like cold larger or red wine and definitely no physical effort involved. I love this freebie paper from one of the magazines a bit like my garden wild and in desparate need of attention as there are loads of weeds and twitch grass and a battle I am loosing at the mo,but wait till my son is back at school come the revolution!lol.

The dotty paper is just a scrap I found no idea who or where from sorry and a peeloff and a few childrens sticky bugs to finish off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges providing I've not missed deadlines as I do seem to have lost track of days, don't know whether to blame the bank holiday of having toothache from my broken tooth which I thankfully got fivxed about 2 hours ago so have a very numb and bruised mouth now and am talking more rubbish than usual.

Charisma-make a summer card
Lili of the valley-lets get dotty
Allsorts-inspired by the garden
Cards for men-long summer days
Everybody art-layout
By the cute and Girly-indian summer

My second card is using a fab digi design by Spyder who not only gives you the chance to win a challenge but you get this digi image to use too. I think this is a fab summer image but would also make a new home card too,what do you think. If you would like the image yourself just pop along to Spyders corner and join in the fun.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges;-

A crafty little place-anything goes
Raise the bar-a living area


Lisa left me a comment to suggest my toadstool could enter her celebration candy challenge over on her blog here, she has some fab candy and a fun challenge too and you have until 13th september to enter. I have also posted a link in my side bar with a piccy of the candy if you are feeling idle , but I'm sure you are going to want to hop over and see what she has and the challenge for youself. Thanks Lisa and congratulations on your latest DT position.
