Typical bank holiday weather but I never really think of summer starting until schools break up well at least after this next half term holiday as I'm not sure much work gets done in the last term of school from my own memory and experience of my son, though I'm sure most teachers would disagree.Not getting into that discussion though as I have a card, something of a rarety I feel at the mo, but not for many more weeks as half Andrews exams are done so normality will resume in about 4 weeks, well my chaotic reality anyway.
2 cute rubber stamps that I got as far as colouring for their first challenge but never quite got any further. It is such a fun image that so reminds me of summer though can't say it's because we spend all sumer on the beach as we don't we live miles from any beach but it reminds me of the hours my son spent in his sand pit and paddling pool when little and as my birthday is in august and we were usually on family holidays then I just associate all summer with my birthday and summer holidays, silly really but I like having a 6 week period where I can treat myself for my birthday. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.LOL. Can't think of the excuses I use for the rest of the year off the top of my head though.
Anyway back to my card. I went back to my comfort zone with the sketch from Raise the bar clean and simple with a few peel offs to break up the vast orange background and extra buttons as one just looked lonely and lost.
Pixie Dust studio and Charisma both wanted rounds on your project and I have a round image and buttons so thats 2 more challenges, I do love it when things fall in place.
The Pink Elephant have a challenge to use bright colours so I hope my sunshine colours count for that.
Cupcake craft challenge have a summer delights challenge so my summer sunshine holiday covers that challenge too.
There's a new challenge at inlinkz too to make a project for a birthdayboy using turquoise, blue, limw green and spicy brown.See the post above for details if the link I'm trying to add doesn't work.
Finally but definitly not least is the challenge over at cowgirl challenge. They have a recipe of 1 digi image, 2 different patterned papers and 3 embellishments. Don't know if my card will count as I made one of my papers patterned by adding the peel offs. I entered this with this card as I don't often use digi images as I'm more a rubber girl so as my cute crab was a digi had to try for this one.
