My flowers are Celebr8 and 49 and Market.  I've added several wooden laser cuts by KaiserCraft, and sprayed them with White Gesso.  I've also added a few pearls.

If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, you're currently getting to feel the sun's warm rays bake down on you, and it's the prefect time to head off to the beach and make the most of it!

I've made a beachy card this week, with one of the images the team is showcasing, from our fantastic sponsor for the week.

My image is called At The Beach.  I have coloured it with markers and added in a bit of a beachy scene behind her.

My papers and tags are from the Bo Bunny Make A Splash pack.  I've distressed and inked all my paper edges..

My flowers are by 49 and Market.  

I chose the lacy edge because the design reminded me of seashells.  It's a Poppy Crafts die cut.  The little beach hut is a Find It Media die cut.

Hope you're enjoying your Summer if you're 'up there'!  I'm LOVING my Winter 'down here'!

Thanks so much for popping in for a look today!

This is our Summer Break challenge and the theme is:

This wonderful Summer image is called Have Fun In The Sun.  I have coloured the image with markers and used a Spellbinders die to cut it out, along with the heart paper - not that you can really see the edges of that one!

My papers are from the Authentique Swaddle pack.  My flowers are 49 and Market.  The flippers, waves, tube, goggles and starfish are Twin Seven foam stickers.  I've added a strip of lace and a Bo Bunny die cut doily.

Nothing quite says SUMMER, like a day at the pool, soaking up the sun!  

This stunning image from Digi Doodle Studios is called Jenny Poolside.  I have coloured the image with markers.

I've used Poppy Crafts dies for the image and sentiment.

My papers are from the Stamperia Baby Boy pack.  I was particularly drawn to the heart paper, because it goes so well with the image.  I have distressed and inked the edges.  

I've added a strip of burlap and flowers from 49 and Market.  The bikini and basket are Birch foam stickers.
