Here Comes Summer!

Only one day of the weekend left now and I hope you have all had a nice one. I had a lovely time yesterday at a demo at Simply Create at Alford. The one and only Kath was demoing Hero Arts stamps and Distress Inks. I'm full of enthusiasm now and hope I can catch up with DT work and have a play. But I digress!!

This week at Just Cute Bears our challenge is Here comes Summer. Now you might be thinking "what Summer?" Well if it's not too good where you are you might just have to use your imagination!

I think this cute Penny Black bear just says "Summer." Look at him, doesn't he look as if he's enjoying himself? Lying in the sunshine in his hammock with a lovely cold drink lol!

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black - kickin'
DP :- Wild Rose Studio.
Roses :- Wild Orchid Crafts sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
MS punch.
Jewels, Sakura clear glitter gel pen and clear gel pen, ribbon from stash.
I'm going to enter some challenges with this card :-
Totally Papercrafts :- Animal Magic.
Papertake Weekly :- Sketch plus lemon and lilac.
Pollycraft :- Ribbon and Bling.
I hope I've got this right now! That's the trouble with scheduling a post, you're never sure you've done everything properly until it's actually posted.
This is a nice easy challenge so I hope a lot of you want to take part. As usual you're welcome to combine it with as many other challenges as you like.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
