Summer daydreams.

Hello all - hope your day is going well today?  We seem to have lost our sunshine here this week which makes me start thinking of how quickly summer passes - the start of the eighth month of 2012 already!  Anyway, this card reminds me of how lovely it is to sit and daydream on those perfect summer days with the sweet little image from A day for daisies and I'm putting it in for their current challenge (not a moment too soon as it ends not long from now!).
   The challenge was to use script so I turned to my old Webster's Dictionary that I picked up out junking one weekend - so useful and it was only a couple of dollars!  I also made a rolled flower from some of the same page for a matching embellishment.



I do love the ADFD images but seem to have a real problem when it comes to colouring them - they are so gorgeously simple and yet I often make a real pigs ear of it!  This one came out pretty nice though - phew......




I would also like to enter it into the following -

Thanks for stopping to take a look :)
