I wish this was my summer selfie! (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Oh how I'd love to look like this in a bikini hehe, those days are gone sob sob. I used my new Lawn Fawn frame die and I used some foam tape to give it height. I have had this floral paper for the longest time, I have way too many patterned papers that are beautiful and all sitting in pizza boxes hidden under more papers. I keep telling myself not to buy more but occasionally I just can't help myself if I see really loves new ones hehe. So I'm really pleased I have gotten around to using these ones anyway as they are a lovely colour combo. The image is another gorgeous one from Saturated Canary.

  3. This is so cute, Lucy. I love the colors. I wish it was my summer selfie 30 years ago. With our heat index at 106 it's kinda hard to exercise. It's a little easier to exercise my hand to my mouth with ice cream. Egads!

  4. The card is wonderful.
    I like the design and I also like the little lady.
    Thanks for joining us at Fairytale-Challenge.
    Good luck!
