Girl with Freezie card

Good afternoon! It's HOT here!!! And after just walking to the post office and back I decided to get a Slurpee from the 7/11 ... aka a Freezie ... perfect day to share this summery card that Rose made with our Girl with Freezie image.

We are giving her away for free this month on our facebook group ... the only catch is... you have to make a card and post it in the group (and wherever else you like online with a link to Mad for Markers) If you do this you will receive the following months image as well :D

Rose has coloured this image with her zig clean color pens. 

Thanks for stopping by!
