Summertime at Anyone For Anya?

At last Mr Blogger seems to be behaving!

I hope you're having a great weekend! I'm sitting here listening to the England Cricket Team become the best in the world, it's thrilling stuff!

I appreciate that few others share my obsession, so I'll move on! This little cutie is 'Summer' from The Greeting Farm's 'Roll Call' set which I got last year, I think from Quixotic Paperie.

The current Anyone for Anya? challenge is "Summertime", so as well as using the image I chose bright, summery colours and paper with summer roses on it.

Papers are scraps of Craft Creations gingham and Flower Delight by Bearly Mine. The flowers are Prima with adhesive pearls in the middles from my stash. The ribbon is recycled, and coloured with Peach Promarker. I also ran the same colour round the oval card and then stickled.

The sketch is a pretty one from Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Well, I ought to be tidying now - India are now 221 for 9! 1 more wicket and we're No One!! - ahem!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink; Buttercup, Canary, Mustard; Peach, Coral, Powder Blue, Denim Blue

P.S I love your obsession of Cricket I just adore it as well I'm a Kiwi I live in New Zealand and both of my boys play it, I coached it up until last year but now I'm a cricket mum who does the scoring for my son's games.
