As I type this we're still in rainy May, but hopefully by now, the sun is out and Summer is eventually upon us!  Today sees a new challenge over at An Oldie But A Goodie, this time, it's hosted by Natalie, and she's gone with the brilliant Summer theme of,

Please also use and state an item older than 6 months on your card.

Back sponsoring us this time is the fabulous Bugaboo, who are offering our lucky winner 7 free digi's from their store.  They were also kind enough to give us girlies a stamp of choice to complete the challenge.

So I have gone with this fabulous stamp "For You From Me" Block, available here.

I so love this stamp, one of my favourite flowers, the hydrangea as it so reminds me of my parents and my Mum's hydrangea plant at the front door.
This is a close up of my favourite hand made flower, made using ribbon, a circle of card and a button.
And, here's a shot of the raised bits - the silicone glue was in action once more

Sorry about all the pictures, but I wanted to show it at a few angles!

My card also uses Craft Companion paper, a charm (my oldie) and an MS deep border along with gems and a ribbon to finish off.
