Sentimental Sundays "Celebrate Summer" Blog Hop!


Hello, I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend & welcome the the Sentimental Sundays "Celebrate Summer" Blog Hop.  Tuesday 21st June is the official 1st day of summer in the northern hemisphere and we are ready for all the summer fun to begin :o).  For our friends down under who are moving into winter & may not feel like creating a summery project they are welcome to create something sparkly or shimmery. You don't have to enter the challenge to do the Blog Hop though it would be nice if you did ;o)

You should have arrived here from CEAL's fabby blog.  If you didn't & would like to join in the Hop please start from Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.

My card is made using an image from StampFairy called "Patsy Beachtime" which I coloured with ProMarkers (& a bit of Prismcolor pencils).  I did some machine stitching round the edge of the papers, added lots of flowers, 2 ribbons, a punched border & 2 tickets (there was a cute wooden butterfly on the fence which balanced the card nicely but I didn't notice it had fallen off when I took the photo lol).

We hope you will join us in our "Summery or Sparkly" (+ a sentiment) challenge this week.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs & the prize is 4 individual sentiment sets. Your next stop on the Hop is Tameko (you will find lots of inspiration on her blog).  If you happen to get lost on the way you can find the Blog Hop list over at Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog cos there are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their Blog Hop posts: the winners will each get a $10 gift certificate for Whimsy Stamps!  The Hop ends Friday 24th June at midnight EST & the winners will be announced on Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday 26th June.  So Hop on over to the next stop & Good Luck!
