Summer Fun

It sure has been hot the last couple of days and Scrapbook Sisters seem to have chosen a most apt challenge this week to go with the weather,"Summer Fun" not that I find the heat much fun.I'm even allergic to Sunshine lol! it's no joke when you've a family that likes sunshine holidays, I'm the one wearing factor 50,sat in the shade returning from tropical holidays without a hint of a tan line.

For my DT card I thought my Gorguss Girl would love a bit of fun in the sun so I put her in her brightest sunny dress and fashioned her a sunshine with the help of my Nestabilities.


 Loving the Lime Twist,Out of the blue 6x6 paper pack by My mind's Eye Papers, just perfect for a touch of summer. That girlie looks like she should have worn a higher factor sun lotion though ,I went a bit heavy with the E21 me thinks !


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Craft Room Challenge,Summer Birthdays,
MTTCC146,Summer,
CCH73,Beautiful women,
CraftyPad 127,Bold and bright,
So how are you going to have fun this summer,if it's card making ,why not enter this week's challenge!
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

Really cute card, Julie! I hear ya on the sunshine. I love the warmth but if I'm out too long I get covered in water blisters. My skin looks like bubble wrap even if I'm not burned.Particularly the back of my neck and my arms.Not pretty.
