Summer's here!!!

I have seen this little image on my fellow design team's blogs several times, and every time I fell more in love with it. LOL - is it possible to fall in love with a stamp..... Anyhow, I just had to have it and couldn't wait to use it.

I guess generally one would use different colours for Daisy VW, something more hippie like, but I thought the image went so well with my paper that I ended up using somewhat different colours to the norm.

This VW was coloured with my prismas of course and blended with grumtine, cut with my nestie and placed on 3D foam. I added some clear glaze for highlights with my Sakura glaze pen, and some crack glaze to the lights. It's an old vehicle so it's allowed to have cracked lights.

Back to the subject of this post! SUMMER IS BACK!!! I cannot tell you all how happy I am, but I somehow get the feeling you already know. And no more moaning from moaning Meahni, hahaha. We went straight from winter to summer, I am not complaining, but we jumped right over Spring. Now all we need is a little rain, my water bill is sky high already, and I need to save for my next Bella order, lol!

Talking about Bella, don't forget it's Bellarific Friday tomorrow and it's my sketch again. Looking forward to getting a sketch from someone else, then I'm allowed to moan if it challenges me as much as my own did ;-)

See you all tomorrow at the Bella post! LOL!

Gorgeous card Meahni!! I LOVE pink and brown together. Did you cut your own card to make the card base, or did you buy it somewhere. I am dying to make some square cards, but don't know where I can get square envelopes. I live in the sticks remember!! Thanks so much for the congrats message over at my blog. Means so much. I am over the moon!!! I am definitely going to make the most of this opportunity. And thank-you for stamping me some more images, you are such a star!! I look forward to receiving a Bella or two cause I am dying to take part in the Bellariffic Friday challenge. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Ours is going to busy, which is a bummer. I just want to stamp and colour. It is raining and missy here today so perfect crafting weather!!

Lovely work as always. :) I stopped by looking for your Bellarific Friday card because that is my original image for Em and still one of my favorites. You did a wonderful job with them and the colors are so soft and just perfect. :) I always give a little happy sigh when I see Ella and Lulu. :)
