Just Inspirational Challenges Week 29

Good morning crafters!

How are you all this fine sunny morning? The weather here is hotting up (41 degrees) and it's getting a little too warm to venture outside on foot for more than a few minutes at a time! I can make it to the local shop and back (good excuse to buy an ice lolly or a smoothie) or to hang out my washing but that's about it! Thank goodness for air conditioning and cars!

Anyway, i am here with my card for the new challenge over at Just Inspirational Challenges
