Totally Papercrafts ,,,,,,, Summer Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) oohh another Friday has whizzed round !! I can hardly believe we are already almost half way through June !! I hope you’re all looking forward to a nice weekend of fab weather and BBQ’s !! I will be going to London on Sunday so I am hoping for glorious weather in the UK !! :-)

This week on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge it is Sarah’s turn to choose the theme and she chose ….

SUMMER ,,, lots of scope there !! I have gone with Summer Birthday ,,,, :-)

We are sponsored by Meljen Designs so some fabulous digi images on offer for one lucky entrant :-)





The postie arrived yesterday with a parcel from the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and inside it was this oh sooo cute House MouseFull Of Hot Air’ stamp and I just HAD to ink it up !! This is the current HM stamp of the month for June :-)

I followed Jill’s fabulous sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge,, thanks, I will definitely use this one again Smile

I coloured the image with Copics, inked the edges with red chalk ink, added a few drops of Star Dust Stickles here and there and used Glossy Accents to the candle. The papers are from Pink Petticoat and I kept it simple and just added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. I did add a gingham bow to the top L corner but I preferred it plain so I removed it,,, luckily I didn’t tear the paper cos I had stuck it on with a glue dot !! the sentiment is a clear stamp from Papermania.





The DT have made some fabby creations for your inspiration so hop on over to the TPC to see them :-) please leave me a comment before you rush off tho ,,, so I know you popped by :-) xx

Ha! Ha! Dream on Lols - we have a severe weather warning for today, so if you want some sunshine, you'd better bing it with you.
