Summer fun, fun, fun!!

....that's what I intend to have today. The sun is shining, pony and dog have been entertained, the cricket tea contribution is cooling ready to be filled and I am off to the brand new Hobbycraft that opens today fairly locally, where I am planning on spending all the overtime payment I have amassed this week...don't tell the Hubster though!!

Before I go here is a little summer creation that I put together inspired by all the summery themed challenges that are around at the moment, and it was also an excuse to have a little splurge at The Stampfairy!!


The image is Lenny Summer Fun and was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers. I found the paper pad in TK Maxx at the bargain price of £2.99. Some card candi and a spotty bow to finish off. 

I am entering these challenges

Open minded Crafting Fun #14 - Water, water, everywhere
Fab 'n' Funky #223 - Feels like summer
Crafty Ribbons #97 - Sunny yellow + ribbon
Allsorts #267 - Splish, Splash, Splosh
Little Claire's #47 - Summer time

Have a lovely day whatever you are doing and thanks for sharing a bit of it with me!! xx

Sounds like you have your day well in hand, with all chores accomplished and a guilt free crafting shop in order. Hope you find lots of goodies that just leap into your basket. This card does invoke summer fun, with the cute teddies & that cooling water from a sprinkler. I can remember playing this way myself as a youngster (we won't say how long ago!). Love the bright colors of the sunbrella...too cute! TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

Hi Sarah,
what a really fab summery card. I love your super image and it's coloured so well.
Great paper and ribbon used on this too.
I do hope you enjoyed your shopping trip to Hobbycraft.
O always spend far too much when I go there, but my nearest is 30 miles away.
Still have a £20 voucher I had for my Birthday in March to spend there.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
