Summer Fun!

Happy Monday everyone!  We had a pretty easy weekend this weekend with just an overnight guest trip and back on the dock last night by 7pm.  I tried a new recipe on the guests for dessert called Vanilla Creme Brulee Cheesecake and it was really good, so I will share it here later in the week.

Today we have a new challenge at Pollycraft chosen by Marit and it is Summer Fun!  There were some fabulous entries for the Great Outdoors challenge last week.  We hope you can all join us again this week for the Summer fun challenge.  Do head over to the Pollycraft challenge blog and check out the fabulous projects from the design team if you get a chance!

Here is my card:

Doesn't Sonny look ready for a beach party?!  The papers I have used are from October Afternoon and the ribbon is from my stash.  I have coloured Sonny with copics (see details below).  I have used the sketch from this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch 110-32
The Secret Crafter Challenge #143: Holidays
Designed2Delight Saturday Challenge: Let's go to the beach
Prairie Fairy Fridays: On Holidays
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: Summer

Here's a close up of Sonny:

And these are the copics I used:

Have a lovely day!
