The Colors of Summer

A new month means a new Customer Challenge at the Gecko Galz and the theme for the month of July is 'The Colors of Summer'.
So why not play along - join the challenge with the chance to win $25 at the Gecko Galz shop!

When I sat in the sunshine whilst having a glass of wine mused over the theme for this month, the obvious colours would be sunshine yellow or orange, blue skies or waters etc but for me the colours of summer are some of my favourite things - Lavender in bloom (the smell!), multi-coloured butterflies fluttering round the garden and lastly, a bit different, is bird song - the image of listening to bird song for me is of sunny days, in tree's full of blossom.

Three postcard toppers, intended for either a card or a journal page but I'm now thinking I might just use them for happy mail, pop a note in with them along with a treat -  a nice little envelope of sunshine.

I used three postcards from my stash (no fear, I have plenty left!!) and picked three lovely images for my favourite things.
