...And the livin' is easy.
Fish are jumpin'
And the rivers are high...

OK, so maybe not the exact words George Gershwin wrote, but the words are true for the UK.
Summertime?? We bypassed Summer, we did not pass 'go' and did not collect the expected rays of sunshine! But we have had an awful lot of rain this year!!

Instead, we shall find Summertime over on the Sugar Bowl as the optional theme for the new challenge.

Our lovely Mama Gayle created the fab sketch for this challenge, and her gorgeous card is made with the image Skool Days. This is such a pretty stamp and of course it's perfect for this time of year when children are finishing the school year. Teachers are breathing a sigh of relief and parents are excited to have their little darlings at home for 6 or 7 weeks :)

Ooooo pretty, pretty, pretty!!
Maria's super sweet card uses a stamp from the newest release - Candy Heart.
I do so much love these little chubby fairies :)

And another pudgy-licious fairy....Lil' Sweetpea.
Isn't she just the most perfect little cherub? Of course she's you see the family resemblance? Her big sister is Pippi Longsocks!
Well they ARE sisters in my little world :)

The Sweeties are taking their Summer vacations and so this challenge will run for a whole 4 weeks, so I do hope you will join in with us and enter a card or two.

Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xx
