Lili of the Valley challenge - here comes summer

I for one can't wait for the summer - for the first time in 20 years (that's how long I've been in the UK) I am so missing the South African heat - must be the poo winter we have had.  So I decided to go overboard with the heat for this week’s Lili of the Valley challenge – here comes summer.

I just love these “man bears” lol, they sure make men’s cards a breeze instead of the chore I usually find them to be.  My hubby is the Barbie King – he does the meanest barbies ever lol so this one is definitely for him.

I don’t think I could have got my colours any more hotter if I tried.  The papers are from a K&Co 6 x 6 pad.  I found these screwhead brads in my stash, aren’t they fab!  The  image is from Lili of the Valley and I think he’s called “Just one more”.  I’ve coloured him with Copics and can’t find the bit of paper with all the pen numbers on – typical!  If I do stumble across it I will add them to the post.
