Craft Your Days Away #25 Summertime

I can't believe that we are up to challenge #25 already at Craft Your Days Away - we've almost been running for a year now.  Our newest challenge has been set by Donna and she has chosen:


I'm not sure where the British Summertime has gone - lets hope it returns soon.  Anyway, we have our regular sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, who are offering a prize of $10 to spend in their shop.


 I love the image that I have used on my card - it is the current July freebie over at Digi Stamp Boutique.  I've coloured it with pro markers - isn't it just a perfect image for Summer time?  I have used some neglected DCWV papers and stickers that I had in a kit from QVC a couple of years ago.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Digi stamp boutique - July competition, their image
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
Bloggers Challenge - Summertime
Daring card makers - Wish you were here
Fairy fun Fridays - on holiday
Samuel Taylors - Summer - Check out their prize - some fab Molly Blooms stamps!!!  (I need the beach side huts stamps)

Don't forget to enter into our challenge at Craft Your Days Away!

Thanks for looking,
