Long Summer Evenings...

This week Crazy Amigo's theme is Summer.

Here is a card made for an online friends birthday (I won't link it to her as she may not have received it yet), which to me has a summer evening feel about it. You know, the hazy lazy , sitting around not wanting the day to end kind of summer evening. Just before you realise you are cold! :0)

I hope it's suitable for the challenge.






Stamps I used are by IndigoBlu and the saying is from my range at Stampotique. Inks are Jenni Bowlin by Ranger available from Happy Daze (links on the right).

Oooh Jo, the colours and technique on the background are stunning and I love those stamps. IndigoBlu are only about 25 minutes from me so I wish they had a bricks and mortar shop ;-). Never mind it's the Stamp Magic show at Doncaster Dome on Sunday and I had a newsletter to say they are going to be there so I'm hoping to go too.

Know just what you mean about the evening temperature, lol!
