A summery card……and some news!

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I’m sure you’re wondering what I’m doing here on a Wednesday as I don’t normally post a card today!!  Well I have some exciting news to share – I have been asked to join the DT over at Bee Crafty and I didn’t think twice as I really love Merrigan’s cute images.  The bee crafty challenge is a monthly challenge so there is a brand new challenge being launched today.  The theme for June is “summer fun” and here is my card:

Bee crafty #1 - summer fun

Bee crafty #51 - summer fun (close up)

I have used a super cute image called ‘whimsical girl summer drink’ which is available as a single image but you can also get the ‘whimsical girl summer’ set which includes 3 images for the price of 2.  The gorgeous papers are my minds eye from the ‘Gertie’ paper pad.  I also got to use my new eyelet circle nesties, which I’ve had for ages but completely forgot about lol!

The lucky winner of this month’s challenge will receive 2 images from the bee crafty shop

I would like to say a big hello to my new team mates *waves*.  Please check out their gorgeous cards over at the challenge blog, you won’t be disappointed.  I am delighted and honoured to be working alongside such talented ladies. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Cupcake inspirations challenge – inspiration photo

OSAAT challenge – 4th of July or picnics

Lollipop crafts challenge – inspired by a song (mine is “here comes the sun”)

A spoonfull of sugar challenge – flower power (my paper and one on my image)
