Fun in the sun at Sweet Stampin'

Good Morning,

That's another week flown by and I have my next GDT card for Sweet Stampin'

The theme this week is 'Summer Fun'

Looking at our British weather you might find it hard to remember what the sun looks like!

But let's brighten up our day with some fun summer cards :)

This is the one I made...

The little digi image was a freebie from Digistamp Boutique last year which I coloured with Copics.
Then I cut it out with rectangle nestabilities dies.
The patterned paper is one of my favourite summer papers and it's the 'Snorkel' collection
by Cosmo Cricket.
I cut the waves and the sun using the Silhouette. Then to finish off I tied baker's twine around the card and tied a bow through the button.

I added glossy accents to the goggles and sunglasses and some stardust stickles around the sun.

I have loads to try and catch up on today...I still haven't attempted the teacher's cards yet...
it's Father's day tomorrow and I haven't started that yet....
a graduation card for my nephew...
birthday cards....
I've a list as long as your arm and the more I look at it, the more tired I feel...
Do you ever get days like that?  Maybe I'm just in a lazy  :)

I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday to share my Father's day cards
(providing I get them made of course......)
All the best,
Sarah xx
