Our Challenge for you at Elphine House this month is ‘The Dog Days of Summer’ We would like you to create something that reminds you of a hot Summers day. I’ve chosen ‘Tommy Tell Tale of Ice Cream’ by Elizabeth Bell for Elphine House Australia and some of my favourite Kaiser papers to create this pretty card:
