Summer's Here at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
It seems that Summer has finally arrived in my part of the UK.  Been scorching temperatures this week and it looks set to continue for a little while yet.  Bit too hot for working but luckily my office is air conditioned.  We have been to Manchester for the last couple of days for our daughter's graduation.  Hopefully I will get round to posting some pictures for you later and catch up with some commenting.  

In the meantime my card share for today is a little inspiration for our current challenge at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Summer's Here

Our sponsor is the wonderful LEJ Designs and I used a super little image called Beachy Fun for my card.

I created a little beach scene by using some sand coloured glitter paper together with some paper that had little beach huts on it.  For the palm trees I found some random paper in my freebies box that had lots of palm trees on it.  They were actually printed in pink so I cut a couple out and coloured them using my distress ink so they looked more realistic.  The strips with the word summer were from another piece of patterned paper.  I coloured the image in promarkers and cut around it before mounting onto the little scene.  
Thanks for popping by and hope that you will join us at The Crafting Cafe for our Summer's Here challenge.  You have until the end of the month so plenty of time to enter.
