SUMMER SOLSTICE


What a great theme this week over at TMTA - Summer Solstice. With Stonehenge just literally 10 minutes away from me I'd love to go down - but I'd probably spend all my time in a traffic jam - so I think I'll celebrate at home but be there in spirit.

I had to use my Cherry Pie Stamps for this one . The touch of holly is there, as all pagans know, because after Mid-Summer the Oak King gives way to the Holly King ready for Winter - oh no Winter already! lol!

I'm also going to put this in for the Art Pieces challenge which want's something magical. This is a weekly ATC challenge blog - a new one for me.

What a great card! I love the "pagan" touches with the background stamps and the godess - very "traditional" summer solstice stuff! *big smile*
