Craft-Room - Here Comes Summer

OK first things first, Netty asked about the bike ride having seen on FB that I was venturing out.  In short not bad, got the bike a couple of months back and then it snowed and rained... Anyway been out a couple of times the week-end being the third.   Still very nervous of cycling on the roads so did not do the planned ride but I will.

OK Craft-Room Challenge and after your amazing response to Esther's use your scraps challenge we have another to tease and delight you from Maria.   The theme this time is Here Comes Summer! well we can but dream and it was nice last Friday.   We are joined again by Rarebird and another of their wonderful jewellery making with FP kits.   All you have to do is join our challenge with something distinctly summer themed.  

I've recently been get back into ATC mode for some swaps on UK Stampers Forum, while thinking of this challenge I came across some background I made ages ago and it seemed just right for a couple of summer themed ATC's.   The stamps i used are special as well, they were designed by Sue Law for a meet she and I had with a couple of other friends this is the first time I've  used them.   Some Promarkers and the Sue's dotty stamp and they were done.   They really express a British Summer at least to me.   Hope you are going to join us with your summer projects.

Other challenges I'd like to share this with are:
Alota Rubber Stamps - Summer Feeling
Crafters Companion - Summer
Stamp and Create - Summer Fun
Wordplay Saturday - Summertime

Right it's Monday evening and Sky Arts have the Queen and Paul Rodgers concert on so please excuse me but I'm just gonna schedule this and enjoy that.
