summer fairy finna!

Good morning!
Well summer is over! the rain is back! well we did have 4 lovely days, can't be greedy can we? YES!!!!!!!! 
Today over at basic grey challenges we want to see "fun in the Sun"
Now I have a confession to make!! this theme was my idea!! now I came up with it months ago, but when it came time to make this card I suddenly thought hmmm what constitutes "fun" does my card have to show action, or can someone be having fun just picking flowers? and what did I mean by sun? does my card have to be set at the seaside for example? yes folks I can get a bit OCD about themes, well I mulled over my conundrum for about a week, getting stamps out and putting them back, now when I get like this, I can't make anything else, I just get blinkers and have to finish the card that is on my mind!! So eventually after dismissing all my stamps (?????) and all my digi's (??????) I found this wee beauty at Mo's! and she looks like she is enjoying herself!! and it's defo sunny, as she has her swimming cozzie on so Voila!! the rest as they say is history!! the rest pretty much fell into place, as I browsed my Basic grey papers this Kioshi one jumped out, and I had my colour scheme. colouring is with my copics, doily is cheery lynne, flowers are prima.
the challenges I would like to enter are:
totally paper crafts - here come summer (there went summer here!!)
papertake weekly - anything goes
dream valley - things with wings
ABC challenge -  S for Suprise
Well have a good weekend all!
