Happy Friday everyone! I love Fridays, don't you? It's that start of the weekend and another week of hard work completed feeling!

It's time for another Fussy and Fancy challenge and this fortnight it's my turn to host the challenge and for this one I picked Summertime as your challenge. You can interpret this in anyway you like- you can use an image appropriate for the season, use colours inspired by summertime and anything else you may choose.


This fortnight we are also sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and I used the cute little Harriet and Tab 2 die for my card. She's all dressed up for a hot summer's day, licking away at her lolly!
