Bloomin' Summer!

Good morning my lovelies! Hope you enjoyed the weekend, mine would have been better if there had been a bit more sun and a bit less wind chill! Hope we're not in for another bloomin' miserable summer!
I'll stop moaning now and move quickly on to the new challenge at Songbirds which is "Bloom and Grow" - a lovely theme where you can really go to town adding all those gorgeous flowers to your cards! We are sponsored this  fortnight by SKdigis who gave us some images to play with. I have used the very cute Bo the Dragonfly to make my card, he's coloured with copics and then I added an extra layer to his wings made from acetate coloured with alcohol inks and sprayed with glimmer mist (messy... but fun!).
Please pop over to Songbird Challenges now, check out the gorgeous cards my team mates have made and then why not enter one of your own lovely flowery cards into our challenge, go on... it'll be fun!
Have a great week, here's hoping for some sunshine!!!
