Last month I was very lucky to be one of the winners over at the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge and as well as receiving a fabulous prize courtesy of Kelly I was also given the opportunity of being a guest designer for the months of May and June.
This is the first of my cards and the theme this fortnight is Sunny Days They have some fabulous sponsors lined up as well as some candy and you can find all the details over on the challenge blog here.
I've used an image from the Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse triple cd collection' as it brought back memories of when my kids were young - it was a very hot summer and we spent most of the time playing and cooling off in the paddling pool (it was one of those large rigid sided ones and even I could splash about in it!!) The lovely sunny spotty paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and it was all layered up with white and yellow card. The dies I used are Poppy Stamps fancy flower which I coloured to match those on the image and Marianne LR0152 to mount the sentiment. I found a metal clip star shape in my stash and when I added some card candi I had my sun and the ribbon had the perfect wording - sweet cute lovely fun - to finish the card.
I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Spring flowers' (my 2nd entry)
Divas By Design challenge 'April showers'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Here comes summer'
