Summer Thoughts

It's that wonderful time of year when the flowers are blooming and summer is right around the corner!  The sun is shining longer during the day and there's more time to be out and enjoy time with friends.  Of course, there are always those special friends who live far away and it's nice to drop them a card to let them know what they mean to us!

This lovely sentiment from Conie Fong combined with this spring bunny delivering a flower seems perfect to convey that message!  

You can learn more about Conie and her art on her Etsy Site or Facebook.  There is also a challenge site for Conie Fong images:  Conie Fong FaceBook Challenge.  Everyone is invited to join and play along using Conie Fong images!

Wondering how I put this together and achieved the No Lines flower border for coloring?  Check out this video for layering images!
