I got some wonderful paper from work and that was the starting point for me. The lollies on the paper, inspired me to make my own lolly from the Pivot Tag and then I decided to make the whole card from the Pivot Tag set. The sentiment was sitting one a Penny Black stamp set that I needed to put away and I thought it would be fun to use the "cool" sentiment with Chilly the Penguin.

Hi Crafting Friends and today I am here with my second card for the Summer Lovin' Challenge. Here is the brief "Summer Lovin'! Make a project to celebrate Summer - this could be nature, or beach or 4th of July or anything that means "summer" to you."
Yesterday I showed you a card with the currently British Summertime weather Status RAIN!! Today I show off a card with the weather for our Summer Holiday destination in Spain and we are expecting it to be hot hot hot in Spain when we visit later in August :)
Those in the UK might get a smile from my first card. Unfortunately sometimes the summer in the UK can be wetter than sunnier! And Here is jinks all ready for a summer day in the UK. Today when I am typing this (Tuesday) we have had terrible rain storms and now sunshine. Rainbows are always a welcome part of the sunshine and rain though.

I am here with a New Baby card, this one made in pink to welcome a new girl, but could look fabulous in blue as well. Maybe I will knock up a blue one next time.

We've been busy this bank holiday weekend clearing the rubbish and old stuff from the garden and making our junkyard garden using pallets and tires. Keeping the costs down by using junk but hopefully making a garden that looks taken care of. We are not finished yet. And something major needs to happen to the lawn but it's a million times better than it was and we have a full skip out front to prove it.
On a personal level it's been a tough few weeks with one of my cats. She ended up having surgery on her thyroid and having many teeth out. It's been an emotional rover coaster. Pleased she survived the operations and like only animals can, she's bounced back remarkably. The photo collage shows Daisy's freedom. She is very much an outdoor cat but had to of course stay in post operation. Thankfully it was only 4 days but it was a long 4 days!
