Where has summer gone??

Morning all, summer seems to have disappeared from South Wales, it’s gloomy and grey here this morning, although the rain has stopped for 5 minutes.  I’m not a big fan of sun-bathing but I love it when the sun is shining – so come on Mr Sunshine please come back to us lol! 

Ok enough of my waffling, I’m sharing a wedding card today (yes one of the 6 I had to make last week for the same couple).  I used the freebie image from Pollycraft so its quite apt that I am entering it into their challenge :)

Isn’t it such an adorable image and it was a dream to colour.  I will definitely be using this one again. 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Digital Tuesday challenge – dazzle me (gems and shimmery ribbon)

Stampin’ royalty challenge – keep it simple, sweetie (KISS)

CAS-tastic challenge – bling it up (gems and shimmery ribbon)

Creative cottage challenge – touchy feely (lots of embossing on my card)

Dutch dare challenge – anything goes

Paper play challenge – anything goes

Simon says stamp challenge – going dotty (my ribbon)

The treehouse challenge – seeing spots (on my ribbon)

Challenge up your life challenge – celebrations

Just us girls challenge – wedding card

Stamp, scrap & doodle challenge – clean and simple

I would like to say thank you to everyone that has entered my candy so far, don’t forget you until 8th August to enter if you haven’t already.  I’ll be back tomorrow with my DT cards for stamp with fun challenge and cupcake craft challenge.  Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping by.
