Expect No Sense from me Whatsoever!

Seriously ... I am too excited to talk sense! We have finally SOLD our house! Yay! The people that are buying it are totally lovely and I feel even more excited knowing that someone else is going to LOVE it just as much as we have!
Anyways ... I will try really hard to make sense of the new theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... this week we are asking you to share your Summer Holiday Art. Tricky I know when it has n't stopped raining for like for-ages ... but if you look out your window right now ... we ordered some UK sunshine to get you all in the mood!
The challenge runs from Monday to Monday ... and our wonderful site sponsor ... Simon Says Stamp gives us a $50 shopping Spree to give away every week.
Did I mention the fact that we have SOLD our house!
My summer holiday tag was inspired by the countless hours I spent as a child ... sitting and chatting with friends while making Daisy Chains in the sunshine. I used Dylusions Pure Sunshine and Squeezed Orange sprays ... Paper Artsy Hot Pick 1203 ... and some Lord Tim of Holtz Idea-Ology and text stamp. You know Tim ... the man that individually paints all the butterflies wings while combing the tangle out of the mane of Wild Lions with just a Distress tool and the lid of some Glossy Accents!
I must away ... so much to do ... packing and ... erm ... packing ... did I tell you we SOLD our house!

Lovely greet

Rosie said...

I love this - your work is always so bright and vivid - but I particularly like the fresh splash of white. This should be framed and on the wall - preferably mine, but you'd have to make a pink one ....

Rosie said...

Sid said...

Have you managed to sell your house yet Linda?

No really that's great news and I love your bright Summery tag too !

I know you must be excited. Congratulations. And yes, daisies are the perfect summer flower. The memorial daisies are what we always use for bouquets this time of year. Reminds me of my mum.
