You see me calling for summer, its so darn cold here today, one would never geuss we lived in Africa.  Do you remember a few months ago i was complaining of the heat, well now i gotta complain of the cold, i really wouldnt mind, if it would just snow and be done with.  So here is a nice summery image in the hope that it would warm me a up a tad.

Summer tilda and her tube, colored with copics and added a bit of glaze to the tube to make it shine, stickles on the water to give it a bit of a shimer and some swirly rhinestones and layered flowers with rhinestone centres.

entering this one into three challenges:
Just Magnolia they want you to depict HOT and nothing says it better than a summery Beachy scene
stamptacular sunday who also want some of the beach
Magnolia down under want us to use flowers.
think i covered all bases with this one.
