Summer Sunshine @ Moving Along With The Times

It is time for some Summer Sunshine at 

Ms Clarie is in charge of the challenge this week 
and she has picked a shiner for us all!
Summer Sunshine

Things are still really chiller down here in the southern hemisphere (understatement) so a dose of summer rays would be blissful!  Think that may be why I had so much fun making this card and why I could not resist the colors let alone this gorgeous image!  

 I would love to take credit for this image, but alas, it is not mine :( 
I did snag it for FREE from HERE though :))
Think it is meant to be a wallpaper for your computer but I think it works great in this card :$

 Wouldn't be me if I didn't do the inside too! 

Now ... I have never been much of a digital paper kinda girl but...  I have no idea who it was but on one of my DT rounds I stumbled across someone who had the most amazing DP and it was digital!  I could not help but go and peak at where she got it from and .... I'm hooked!  All the DP in this is from Raspberry Road Designs and are all from the Summers End and Country Home collections.  I am in love with all the papers over there!  

This card is heading it's way to my sweet lovely mum :) She just got a new job and she took a huge leap of faith with it and ... Did not consult me once!!!! OMG this is a huge step for her and I am so proud she is learning to trust in herself and her own judgement.

Who is sponsoring us this week ???
