Summertime Designs

Hello crafters!
A number of months ago I came across a really great blog.  It is a free digital scrapbooking blog run by a very generous lady called Summer Driggs.  Summer is one of those rare people who are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, I have so much admiration for her as she certainly hasn't had the easiest of times.
If you click on the tag above you will go to her crafting blog (I say that because she also has a family blog), once here you will be astounded by the sheer ability of this lady to make such beautiful digi kits.
Even the names of these kits are beautiful: Limeade, Memories & Boy oh boy kits to name just a few.

Here is a card I made using a paper from the 'Apples & Almonds kit' however, my printer was running out of ink and it printed it in shades of green instead of the browns that it should have been!  I didnt want to waste it so Ive used it here on a card I am making for a friends birthday next month.  The image is perfect as he has an allotment and makes lots of lovely gifts with the surplus fruits of his labour!  Last christmas we were given 2 chutneys and 2 jams and they were all very very tasty!  This image is from Beccys Place, I came across her from the free digi site; she has some lovely slightly different images including hiking boots and a lovely christmas carousel horse.  Please pop over and have a browse!

This is indeed a very lovely card. The greens seem so natural, Keryn - would never know your printer was out of ink. I know your friend will love this birthday card - it is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the link to your friend's digital papers - she's quite talented!

Lovely card Keryn and what a fab image - I'm always on the look out for something a little different and digi images usually tend to be what I'm looking for. Hugs, Claire x
