Guest designing

Happy Midsummer's Eve everyone! Today is the big summer celebration here in Sweden. Always with bad weather, and every year you expect it to be nice and sunny. That's a rare thing. LoL They are threatening with thunderstorms today and I so hope they are wrong about that or that it some magical way passes by without getting near me. I get such shortness of breath when the thunder comes that it feels like I'm going to die. Horrible!

But now to something more fun. This week I am guest designing over at ABC challenges which has the theme of Summer / warm weather. I chose to use an image from the Paper Shelter called Summer Holydays. She is coloured with my Letraset family in bright summer colours from the special editions set from this and last year. The work so well together.


The lovely gal is paired up with some yummy papers from Echo Park called Paradise Beach. Every singel paper in that pad is wonderful with stunning summer colours that I love. Almost hard to cut into them. To embrace the summer feeling I have also used some lovely yellow flowers from Prima together with a few roses from WOC. Cheery blossoms from I am Roses. A ribbon from a Molloy kit together with a few charms from Bildmålarna and Pagoni if I remember right. A bunch of dew drops represents the water. Also some chees cloth is used under the flowers. Hopefully bringing your thoughts to fishing. I used to do that all the time when I was a kid. Those were the days. LoL

So please pop by the challenge blog for the ABC challenges. You still have time to play with this weeks summer theme. There is some lovely inspiration for you over at the challenge blog too. Also a big thank you to Patty and the gals for picking me as a winner for the Male card with the mc bird. And thanks for having me as a guest over at your lovely blog.

Happy Summer everyone!

Love n hugs
Marie

Gorgeous card Marie. Love the papers - such yummy colours - a brand I've never used. I've hunted for those Prima papers and they don't seem to be stocked any more - they an old design, 2011, I think - so may have to look at some of these instead lol. Keep as well as you can huni big hugs Karen x

Hugs, Merkkari
