Happy Monday everyone!
Phew not sure where the last 3 weeks have gone - I am lucky enough to work termtime only which means I get the lovely long break to spend all summer with my little ones, it's going far too quickly though......
So, welcome to our latest challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers, hosted by Lin, who has chosen the theme Fun in The Sun
In the hopes of encouraging the sun to shine for longer than 5 minutes, Lin would like to see something relating to the summer fun, so that might be holiday related, or something in the garden, basically something you might do outdoors when the sun is shining that's fun, clean and legal!!
Please ensure your card meets the required element to qualify for a winner or Top 5 slot.
PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE RULES BEFORE ADDING YOUR CREATION AND CHECK IT MEETS THE CRITERIA AS LAID OUT ABOVE - ANY ENTRY NOT COMPLYING WILL UNFORTUNATELY BE REMOVED

Here's my DT card for the challenge:
I have used the 'Winnie Goes Camping' image from our fab sponsor Saturated Canary, (love, love, love the fab work of Krista Smith!!) coloured with ProMarkers and edges distressed with Pumice Stone and Iced Spruce Distress Inks. The backing paper is from MME's Quite Contrary paper pad. I gathered some cotton lace to make the flower, added a brad, stamped 'sweet' and die cut the '16'. A perfect card for my niece - their family caravan is kept at a campsite in a nearby village and they quite often stay there at weekends during the summer season for fun in the sun (or rain!!) so that was my inspiration for this card!
Now, pop along to the challenge to see the creations of my fab team mates and why not take part yourself?
Happy crafting everyone........I have lots of cards to make for birthdays over the coming months including a very special little girl of mine who will be 5 a week today so I'd better go tidy my craft room!
Back again soon
