Summery Soda

Hurray, the weather has taken a turn for the worse! Never thought I'd say that, but I have been really welcoming clouds, drizzle and most importantly a temperature drop to below 20 degrees Celcius! No doubt I will tire of this weather type soon enough, but in the mean time I am pretty happy about it!

Today I am sharing one of my last 'sweaty' cards, so kept it fairly simple again. Today we're starting a new challenge @ Fab 'n Funky themed "Anything that Looks like Summer". We are sponsored by Lily of the Valley and Lacy Sunshine this week, the latter also let the DT pick an image to work with, I chose this thirsty girl. I mean, is there anything more summery than a large drink with ice? Euh....probably, but still! What imagery makes you think immediately of summer? Let us know, use it in your project and join our challenge! Remember, we're still in fortnight mode, so you have two weeks to play along. Hope to see you there :)
