Dreaming of Summer

Good evening to all my wonderful friends and followers This evening sees the launch of a new Anything Goes Challenge over at All Dresssed Up Challenge Blog as always you must use an All Dressed up image.  If you want to join in and don't have an image then there are some great freebies to be found on the blog page,

You could win your personal choice of 3 All Dressed Up digi images, be selected as one of the Top 3 or be chosen as a guest Designer for the next Challenge.

For my Design Team card I used the lovely Dreaming of Summer stamp at the time it seemed like a good idea but given our terrible summer maybe not but we can all hope and dream !!

  16. Carole, your card is exquisite. The dreamy purples and little sweetheart have stolen my heart. :o) You always use the sweetest combination of trims and flowers. I love the use of the chippie and I am truly enamored with the sentiment. You always use Maja papers so beautifully. I'm excited to tell you that I have just colored up my very first All Dressed Up stamp! It was a joy to color. I will certainly be playing along in your challenge when I post it next week. :o) Thank you for always inspiring us so richly!
