Summer Days.....


 Over at
Let's get Shabby
for Challenge #49

Pick ONE season from the inspiration photo 
 and craft a project.
 You need to be inspired by the picture of your choosen season…
Then.... Tell us all about it!
We are having a LOVELY summertime here in my part of the UK.
Lots of sunny warm days
(apart from the torrential downpour of rain yesterday!!!)
So, for my DT piece, I was inspired by the SUMMER pic.....
I had a little tag with a tissue transfer of a vintage bathing girl in my crafting stash, and a rubber stamp with the quote/saying... 'Friendship is the only flower that blooms in all seasons',
which would be perfect for a Summer Birthday card.
So here is my take on this Seasons challenge...
Vintage bathing girl on a tag
handmade flowers
string and ribbon
assorted papers
stitching and distressing
Rubber stamp
buttons and cheesecloth
wooden fence embellie
Now hop over to
..for the full deets There is a fabby shabby prize up for grabs this month
...and see what other wonderful inspiration the talented shabby girls have created for this SEASONS challenge... 
Thanks for Peeking!
