Where has the sunshine gone????!!! Hope that wasn't our summer, it was lovely while it lasted but a week just isn't long enough! I thought I'd share this summery card just to remind you what we're missing! The gorgeous image is by Mo Manning - I just love her stamps, they capture childhood so perfectly! This little girl could be modelled on my younger grandaughter -down to the wellies and tutu!! I kept this quite simple -coloured with copics, a little glossy accents to the wellies and doggie's nose and a touch of bling! I'm using it for these challenges:
 DP2   In the dog house!
TPE  Summer
lovetocreate  spots and dots
sassycheryls  polka dots

Have a good evening!
