Thinking of warmer weather

This image always makes me think of summertime and looking outside today it really could be a summer's day but you certainly wouldn't think so when you open the door and feel the temperature - very chilly indeed!! 

Anyway I had this Sugar Nellie image sitting around on my desk waiting to be coloured so when I had some time for crafting last week it was one of the first things I did. I find colouring so theraputic, I don't need to be thinking about what to create, I just enjoy the process and then see where the coloured image takes me. 

In this case I used some lovely Crate papers which tied in nicely with the coloured image and also with the gorgeous new crocheted trim my sister Gillian gave me, along with a bunch of other interesting ones, as part of my Christmas present. The card just fell into place with very little help from me!!
