Thinking ahead

I don't know about you, but the fact that it's getting a little bit lighter in the evenings has got me looking forward to the summer time and the long, light evenings. We are also having some lovely clear sunny days at the moment, our little part of Scotland has escaped the wintry weather that is afflicting the north and west of the country and it looks as if it's warm as well (- it's really not!!) but when you look out of the window at the clear blue sky it does lift the spirits a bit :o)

My card today has very summery feel, I based it around the fun ribbon which I've had in my stash forever and coloured the lovely Sugar Nellie image - which I chose because the detail in her clothes and hair band matches my ribbon so well - with Promarkers. The backing papers are a mix of Basic Grey and Trimcraft First Editions and are both shades of my favourite turqouise/teal colour.
