Summer

I have given up any vague hope that we might actually EVER get any sun in the UK so have decided to make my own little sandy beach!!


I found this cute stamp set (ladybug Crafts Ink...now gone) while having a bit of a tidy up and as there are so many Summer inspired challenges around thought I would ink it up. I finally unwrapped the Marianne die set that contains the photo frame and coloured the image with Promarkers to match the Doodlebug Designs paper. The card is a diddy four inch square for a change.

I'm playing here

We are off to a Summer Party this evening so fingers crossed it won't rain , although I don't hold out much hope of that!!

Whatever you are up to this weekend I hope the weather is kind.

thanks for sharing your day with me and see you soon xx

  15. Fantastic card Sarah! Small but perfectly formed with the fab stamping and lovely paper. That photo die is now on my wish list. Love the glitter on the flip flops. My hubby has just ordered my eldest son some flip flops in size 14! If he doesn't like them we can use them as surf boards :D. Debra x

  18. Hi Sarah,
    oh I do love this fab card.
    That stamped image is perfect, and it's coloured perfectly too.
    I can't believe it's only 4" square, and it must have been so fiddly to make. LOL.
    Enjoy your wonderful evening out.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
