Summer Days !


Wow I can't believe I did 2 cards in two days.....you know I am enjoying my days off ! This little card is made from a kit that I got from a swap on SCS...thanks Lena I love it ! This was just perfect for the challenge given by Suzanne Dean to create a summer themed card, the images must be colored with Copics and color at least one embellishment with Copics.
My embellishment colored with Copics is the wooden stir stick that Edwin is standing on I colored it using E33.
The images used are Surf Edwin #136, and the Pier Fence #615 both of these images are in stock and you can get them here from Diana.
I have followed the sketch at Papertake Weekly sketch #41. I am also entering at Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge #11 where they want Summer.
Over at Quixotic they want to see embossing in any form so I have liquid embossed Edwin's hair, his surfboard, the life raft and the water.
At Challenge up your life they want us to recycling...I used a coffee stir stick for Edwin to stand on.
Just Magnolia #57 is Hot n Spicy = Summer for me especially here in AZ !
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Great Outdoors
The Corrosive Challenge is clean and simple

The raffia for the bow and the sentiment are from my stash.
Copics used for this card E00, 0000, 11, 30, 39, 51, 53, 55, YG21, 23, 67, YR16, C1, 3 and 5.
I used cat eye chalk inks to give the light blue tint to the sky.
Well that is it for me, I hope you all have a very safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
Hugs,
