Sunday 29 June 2014


Today sees the start of a new Sentimental Sundays challenge which is "Summer" (with a sentiment). Our summer weather here is the UK as always is a bit hit & miss (at the moment it's more miss than hit unfortunately lol).  I made a tag (which was actually made for a swap group I'm in on Facebook) & kept it clean & simple cos I love this image which was a part of an Acid Drops & Whatnots stamp set I go free with a magazine :D  I coloured it with ProMarkers, used some Glamour Dust on the water & the sky was made using chalk & a cloud die cut.  I inked the edges & finished off with an eyelet and ribbon.  Our fab sponsor this week is All Dressed Stamps so there is the chance to win some gorgeous images.

The challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Summer or Summer Colours 
Sweet Stampin' - Summer Fun
CFC - Summer Lovin'
That's Crafty! - All at Sea
Wags & Whiskers - Summer Fun
Milk Coffee - Summer Fun
Allsorts - Summer Girls

(without the sentiment)

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend xx
