Dreams of Summer!

Nice sunny day here but autumn definitely upon us as there's a definite chill in the air. Got me to thinking though when I saw the beautiful blue sky, of warm sunny summer days - then I remembered this stamp. Part of a set of 2 (the other is just a smaller beach hut) and I was fortunate enough to win them a long time ago in a challenge.
I have used them both a couple of times and hunted them out again this morning when I made this -
Get your sunglasses on!!!!

Image stamped with Versamark, then coloured with Distress Inks.
Papers are old (very old!) from my stash as is the hessian strip.

The sentiment was a freebie download, I added a yellow button for the sun and a couple of charms - a flip flop for the girl and a pair of swimming shorts for the boy!
Inside decorated to match.

As I am typing this I'm thinking that I am probably going to have to put the heating on - cos it definitely isn't flip flop and swimming shorts weather now!

  6. Super card Viv and I love all your detail.....the charms and a clever idea of a button for the sun...if only that would work in real life and we could just hang a button up! Fabulous bright and cheery colours in those papers too.

  14. I love the organic hessian with the sweet beach hut Viv which makes me long for summer to return soon, no such luck though, also those wonderfully bright dp's complement this seaside theme so prettily and then the added charms finish it beautifully. x
