Lazy hazy days of summer!


Well summer may be here in name but not in N Ireland! Its wet wet wet and windy and that's not my IBS I'm talking about lol. But to keep the summer spirit alive I have made this little step card for the new challenge over at SIR STAMPALOT! We had such a lot of top class entries last month and we all so enjoyed checking them out but it was a total nightmare picking the winner and top three!!! This month, I am sure will be no different and be sure to check out the brilliant prize on offer!
For my card I used papers from DCWV, the images are from Magnolia, the shells were a free stamp from a magazine, stamped with distress inks. Everything else is stickers. The images are coloured with copics. This just reminds of when I was little and we went to a place called Bray in Ireland for our holidays every year. The beach was beautiful and we would spend hours on it as a family with picnic in tow lol.
So lets see what summer means to you all and remember you could win a brilliant generous prize from Sir Stampalot!
I want to thank everyone for their lovely comments on my toot yesterday, they mean more to me that being on the inspiration blog! You girls are the best. Big hugs!
A big happy WELCOME to my two newest followers DANNI and MIRIA. You've made my day!

Congratulations Pinky on the feature, just popped over to have a look and leave a comment. You must be so pleased to be fetaurred, what an honour.

This card has so much going on, fantastic.

I'll send you some sunshine if you send me some rain, but overnight please, not during the day, as my garden needs it.

Hi Pinky

A catch up at last!!!

It seems to be taking for ever to rescue everything I want to keep off my dying laptop.

Loving your creation - very summery. I have never done a step card - they look great.

Hope you are OK - despite the weather.

Love Jules xx
