Sweet Summertime

I made a couple of cards today, but found it really hard to get going with both of them. I think it must have been that Sunday morning feeling as they both seemed to take me forever despite not being very difficult or fussy cards! Anyway this first card is for Whimsy Stamps Challenge #72 Summertime. I thought this cute Lollipop Girl was perfect for this challenge.

I used some of my mountain of SU DSP - this packet was actually unopened and is now retired! I will be soon selling a load of my old SU stamp sets as I am not going to be a demonstrator for them any longer after this quarter - no point as I don't use their stamps any more really. I do like their card, ribbon, ink and patterned papers as it all matches, but the stamps are just not my style now and there's only so many flower stamp sets I need or want!

Anyway here she is...
