In the Summer Time...... when the living is easy DT wk 141 Here Comes Summer.

Good Saturday Morning Peeps 
I hope you have your coffee nice and hot
and your up for another fun challenge
with us at the Secret Crafter
on this beautiful summer morning

This week's challenge is set by little ole me
 and is

' Here comes Summer '

So basically anything that reminds you of summer,
it could be bbq, beach or holiday,
anything as long as it reminds you of long lazy summer days.

For this card I used 3 Make it Crafty images,
I photoshopped them together to make the beach scene
and coloured it with copics.

The cloud background paper is available from The Pink Petticoat and
the yellow embossed sunrays is from a Tim Holtz embossing folder
and I sanded it to bring the lighter colour of the core-dinations card through,
for the shaped card I used a Grand Nestibilitie label, I think its label 4.

Thanks for stopping by, good luck in the challenge,
and I look forward to seeing you're fabulous creations thoughout this week.
