Fun in the Sun!

 Well not here lol the weather is diabolical: cold, wet & windy (I'll just have to stay in & craft - every cloud has a silver lining).  I saw this free image on Michelle Perkett Studio blog & had to use it .  The papers are actually NOT digital for a change these are Basic Grey, Lime Rickey & I thought they were just perfect :)  I did lots of random stitching (I love doing this).  The sentiment is free from Pink Cat Studio &I finished off with Glamour Dust, ribbon, gems & beads.

I'm entering this card for these challenges:
Meljen's Designs - Fibres, Ribbon or Lace
Sentimental Sundays - Summertime
Quirky Crafts - Summer
Scrappy Frogs - Summertime Fun
Michelle Perkett - A Stitch in Time
ABC - Weather
Crafty Creations - It's a Stitch Up
Pollycraft - Let's Have a Sing Song (Summer Holiday)

Hope you're having a great weekend (despite the weather if you're in the UK).  I am but unfortunately my week off is coming to an end (I'm trying not to think about it).
