Lazy Days of Summer

Hi guys,
I wish!! it's more like winter hey! lol
we have a lovely challenge for you today at 
it's called Summertime,
May be it will put the weather in a better mood and we may see some sun lol,
Now I enjoyed doing my swing type card so much the other day I couldn't resist doing it for this time too, I have of course used a gorgeous Teddy Bea image from Teddy Bo which I have coloured with distress inks then cut out,
I made my easel style card again and cut out the middle for Teddy Bea to be able to swing,
I thought she'd look cute in a trellis effect frame so I used a Martha Stewart punch, 
I was given some lovely ribbon which looks like leaves so I trailed this around the frame and added roses from WOC for the flowers,
This is a closer look of Teddy Bea, isn't she gorgeous, I love teddies,
the rest of my card has again flowers from WOC but this time I've used larger flowers and a charm,
I kept the look as soft as I could to compliment the detailed background, or at least I hope I have lol,
the tag has been left plain to fill in with an apt sentiment etc,
Teddy Bo Challenge ~ shaped cards, (hope this counts)
A spoon full of sugar ~ here comes summer,
Creative card crew ~ things with wings,
Stampavie and more ~ more than one fold,
Timbroscrapmania ~ pink, love and fantasy,
Sarah Hurley ~ summer,
Digital Tuesday ~ In the Garden,

well guys, I hope you will join in the fun, we love to see your creations, 
don't forget we now do a top three,
see you soon,
Love and hugs Liz xx
