The theme this month is  SUMMER HOLIDAYS

 I am dreaming  of Summer because it is Winter here,  in the land down under , Australia .
And ,  if I were to go on a Summer Holiday it would be to a luxury  resort where I could swan around all day in my Sunday best and be pampered ..Yeah right!!         Aint  never  gonna happen .

 For my DT card I chose a CD again , from  Kraftyhands , of course .
using Summer of 59 CD 

Summer of 59 CD Collection

Card stock from SU . I  just 3D the image to give some dimension .


Another quick and easy way to create a summery card would have been to use

  2. Super stunning Shirly would love to get hold of this CD as looks like the images would be lovely....a cold one in Adelaide? Equally as cold here too...Hubby is flying to Adelaide on Friday to take a few to the Crows game, hope he does not freeze being a member they may give him a hot water bottle..xxxx

  3. Such lovely cards Shirley-Anne. Your card made me sing 'Summer of 69' Hope the weather gets warmer soon. XXLeanne

  4. I'm pretty chilly sitting here in my coat in the freezing lounge room!!! Your card is lovely Shirley and I can see you swanning about in your finery, lol. Would love to be somewhere a bit warmer than here at the moment.
    See you tomorrow,

  5. Great idea to pop up the image for dimension. I do like this retro style image and card.

  6. I really love this card, it reminds me of my youth!!!!! I used to soak my net underskirts in sugar and hang them out to dry then my skirts would be as wide as these. Ah! memories :)

    Hope you will be a little warmer today, winter seems to last so long doesn't it? At least we have had a few weeks of real sunshine and warmth, could have been our summer, it's raining today LOL.

  7. Lovely card, and I love that green dress - don't you wish we had such lovely dresses now!
