Its summer time!

Post number two for today! Please scroll down to see my Celebrate the Occasion DT post.

Sooo....isn't this weather lovely?? The sky is blue in Aldershot today and the sun is shining! Woo hoo! I really hope this lasts as I'm on annual leave next week and staying put in this country!

Anyway, all this lovely sunshine has inspired a couple of cards today....


I've used plain blue backing paper, along with some fab stripy paper that reminds me of deck chairs to make this page. My image is created from two Pollycraft characters which I have coloured with my Promarkers. The sentiment was created on my computer.

This card reminds me of me and Joe.....we love surfing. I'd like to say the characters look like us, but I think that would be pushing it a bit!!

This card has been created for the following challenges:
Oldie but a Goodie - photo inspiration (that photo really screamed summer holiday to me and this is my perfect summer holiday!). My old thing is the deck chair-like paper!
Tuesday Throwdown - Tropical paradise

My second card also has a lovely summery vibe to it....


Isn't that strawberry backing paper cute?? I've backed this paper with some plain blue paper, which I have also used around my image and my sentiment. The image is another Pollycraft cutie and I've coloured her with my Promarkers.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Passion got Promarkers - feeling fruity
Love to Create - spots & dots (my strawberrys are dotty!)

Well I hope my cards have left you with that summer feeling! Pop by the challenge blogs mentioned to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.

Finally, I'd like to introduce you to Penny the Pineapple plant! Hee, hee....I've wanted a pineapple plant for ages and mum found this lovely one! She's now sat below my living room window sunning herself!


Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
