My card this week is a summery one...a wishful thinking card....for all of you that have a cold winters day, this could be around the corner...just waiting. 

Sunny Holiday Bear

Coloured with pencils,and paper pieced her towel, hat,and beachball... the cloud paper was a freebie from 'Bird'....torn manilla folder for the sand,and a torn piece of water looking paper from my scrap box...added the cute shell beads and the sentiment...done.

I picked a favourite again, one that just popped up and said, 'look at me'...from Peggy  
I think she is gorgeous...

Well, thats it...I'm off to work shortly, then a funeral this elderly uncle died on Thursday...have not seen him for years..they all keep to themselves, and whenever we have a funeral or some reason to get together, it is always filled with laughter, and we must do this again, and all the pie crust promises are made.....and broken again. by the time you are in your car to drive home....but thats all good...just the way things are... so have a great up all your paper projects, and I will see you tomorrow...

Big welcome to 4 new followers, thank you so much for joining me....and did you see that blogger is going to close 'Google friends connect"..but I think it is only blogs that dont run their blogs through google blogger..fingers crossed we can all stay in the one place together.....

Your card is darling!
I know what you mean when attending a funeral it's like catching up and having fun and empty promises are made for a get together... why does that happen>
Hugs Bonnie

Jane said...

Sorry to hear about our uncle. My family is like that too...shame really but that's how real-life is sometimes...Hmmm
Meanwhile your card is teasing us in the UK with promises of sunny days yet to come, sitting on our beach towels, enjoying some rays.

Hi Chrissy

Love your fab, summery card. Although I had to look twice as with the shadowing on the card it looks like this cute little bear has taken to the beach on his trusty magic carpet, lol.

You have created a really wonderful scene with the sky, sand and surf.

Wonderful pick as your favourite too, the image is gorgeous and her colouring is amazing.

Michelle :o)
