Summer Fun

** Click here to see my birthday blog candy **

Hello to all of you.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I had a quiet, relaxing weekend.  It was dreadfully hot so I used that as an excuse to stay out of the heat and work on some cards ... trying to work ahead a little bit cause this week is going to be crazy busy.  Well, since it's Monday, we have a new challenge for you over at the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog.  It was our lovely Marit's turn to choose a theme and she picked Summer Fun for our theme.


I used Summer Things - Cool Cat on my card.  Doesn't he look like he's having a relaxing day?  I colored this cute cat with copics and colored pencils and added Glossy Accents to his nose and sunglasses.  I used my Memory Box scallop die for the waves and cut it all out with my nestabilities.  I added some twine and a button and a diecut sun to finish my card.  Please be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the DT.


We're being sponsored this week by Quixotic Paperie.  Be sure to stop by and check out her fabulous selection of goodies!
