Hi Crafty Friends,

Oh how I wish it was summer here, it's so cold here in Oz at the moment as we are smack bang in winter! I love creating summery cards at this time of the year though as it reminds me that Spring is on its way soon and that's my favourite time of year.

I haven't used an image from The East Wind for ages and I am so happy to have finally coloured this sweetie up as she's gorgeous! I added her to some Echo Park papers.
