Crafty Friends Team 2 Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Hello Everyone!

Phew what a scorcher! At last the weather has turned the corner here in Kent and we are loving the Sunshine! However I am also taking part in the Cancer Research Race for Life 5K tomorrow - could be a tadge warm - drinks are already in the freezer. Think I might have to walk some of it rather than run - but at least there is no time limit!

So on to the Crafty Friends Team 2 challenge and this time it is a photo inspiration challenge - and quite appropriate as the weather has improved!

For this challenge we are sponsored by:-

I've used the Summer Shades image from Stitchy Bears and here she is on my card:-

Hope you like it - and take it from me the ribbons and gems are pink but they do look a bit red in this photo.
Come and join in the challenge at the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog - we'd love to see your entries.

Right early night in store for me tonight in anticipation for tomorrow's Race for Life. If you would like to make a donation you can always click on this link

Bye for now - enjoy the sunshine!
