My main image is the delightfully cute Molly Blooms (my new favourite!) but the background is 'Beach Umbrella' kindly donated by Meljens Designs who are one of our sponsors for this challenge. The second sponsor is Love to Stamp and both are offering wonderful prizes so I do hope you'll join in this lovely challenge! Do hop over to the challenge blog and see what my talented teamies have created.
I did find this card great fun to make and I just love all the bright summery colours. I also used a different embellishment for the very first time - that's the twig supporting the 'Fun in the Sun' message. There I was yesterday, hunting around the gardens outside our apartment looking for just the right twig! If any of my neighbours was looking out of the window, they'll now be convinced that I've totally lost it!
Well, it's the Summer Crafting show at Doncaster Racecourse this weekend and I'll be there tomorrow adding to my small stash. (yeah, right!) If my friend, Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps is swamped with customers (not an unusual situation for Barbara!) I will be helping out on her stand so if you see me, please stop and say hello.
I'm also going to enter this card into The Paperlane Challenge, which this month is 'Anything but square'.
