The theme of this week's Just Magnolia Challenge at is "Summer", and this is my take on it as I always associate Roses (my favourite flower) with Summer. As I don't have a particularly "summery" Magnolia stamp, I have used this one - OK, so she is wearing a little cardi, but up North where I come from, children have to wear a cardi when they play out, even in Summer!!! To those of you who are passing by, I would love to receive your comments. Crafty hugs, Sylvia xxxxPS: Tilda coloured with Copics, papers are "Madeline" from K&Co. Charms from

Love this card! My fav, pink! and such a cute image. Thank you for for your kind words eariler when you popped over for a visit
My little 'problem' wasn't even noticed until I was in Secondary school, and then nothing was done, but I knew I wasn't 'thick', not with all the rhymes and pictures I hold in my head to help me remember how to write and spell things! The computer is a fantastic tool and great help!! So, your grandson will be just fine~I've helped run a play school and even helped children who couldn't read at school, at the time no one knew my secret. The only reason I've mentioned it,is, sometimes I do muddle words and there has been some very bad spelling mistakes that may offend people! have a lovely weekend,
