Summertime

Hello everyone! 

Well, it's seems as though Summer has finally arrived here, yesterday it was 32°c... although I have to say that was a little too hot for me!

Today see's the start of a new challenge at Di's Digi Designs Challenge, and this fortnight  our theme is "SUMMERTIME". I've gone with warm colours and lush green for my card. I've kept it fairly simple to place more emphasis on the image, which is called "Do you like strawberries?" and can be found at Di's Digi Downloads. Cute huh?! Now, my Cupcake teamie Delphine is absolutely the bee's knees at colouring, and she has a great cloud tutorial on her blog, which I followed (thanks Delphine).. Although Delphine uses Copics (sadly I don't know what these are like as have Promarkers myself), I've attempted the tutorial using my Promarkers... what do you think of my effort? 

We are sponsord by Digi Darla Designs this fortnight who will be giving a prize to the lucky random winner, and also Di will be giving away some of her digi stamps to the lucky person who has used one of her images. Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the details, and also have a look at all the fabulous cards my DT team mates have created!

Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for popping by!
