Its Summer Again!

My exams ended. At last. I am free!!!
Yay for reading, crafting, music and lazing about! Summer's here! It's very, very hot already, but still I'm lovin' it!
I appropriately kick-started with a summer themed card, inspired from Lulupu Challenge#28. I used both the shades of pink, orange, yellow. Actually all sorts of colours can be found on the hat!

Though for me, I spend almost the whole year in flippies! The most comfy footwear ever! I loved making the small flip-flops on the card. The straps are quilling strips, and added a dab of glitter in the middle. For the iris folded hat, I liberally demolished the glossy newspapers and magazines lying about. I hand drew and cut out the cat eye shades out of black CS. I would look horrible in cat eye shades, but I love them anyway.

The sun hat is iris folded, and looks like a bit of a collage, like the inspiration pic of  Runway Inspired Challenge #57, so I'm thinking of playing along!

Today is going to be so good! I am again rejoining my singing classes, which I was forced to discontinue dues to the pressures of the 12th year. And tomorrow, my brother comes home for a visit(he stays in Bangalore)! Yesterday he asked me on the phone whether I wanted to go clothes shopping on him, and I was like, no, I just want craft supplies. He thought I was nuts!
I just read through this and found a lot of exclamation marks!!! :p  I really am happy!

Thanks for suffering through my excited ramblings, and happy crafting!
