Adorables On The Beach

I got up this morning and the sun was shinning, so after putting some washing on the line I picked these stamps out of the cupboard to use today. By the time I came to put the card together the heavens had opened and it was raining cats and dogs, and it didn't feel anything like summer. However with this card, I have managed to cover three challenges. The first challenge, and the reason that I picked these stamps above any others is Pan Pastels and Summer Fun. The second is Craft A Scene and Anything In The Great Outdoors, and finally as this is the first time I've used these stamps since buying them last year, they will qualify for Judith's Forgotten Friday challenge.

I started by stamping the images onto some white card stock with Memento black ink, and then coloured them in with promarkers. I then printed off one of the scenes from the Adorables Summer collection CD, I did re size this as the original size was 8x8 inches, this one is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I've used an 8x8x card base, made from centura pearl card, and matted the scene onto the same coloured centura card. Next I added my images, which were all cut out, and ready to be placed. Now if only the rest of the summer (in the UK) could be this nice, I'd  be a very happy. It can't hurt to dream I suppose!!

Thank you for taking the time to look. Your kind comments are always appreciated.
