Prairie Fairy Fun Fridays - 25 Summer Vacation

Hello my dears, Woohoo!! it's nearly the weekend and the forecast is for SUN!! yippee.

Today we have a new challenge over at Prairie Fairy Fun Fridays, and the theme chosen by our Fairy Queen Roberta is SUMMER VACATIONS, my image which can be bought Here is called Summer Fun. Isn't this the most adorable image, I think that puppy wants to play, don't you.

I've used my Promarkers to colour it and I've also used one of my new Nellie's Multi frames, threaded my string though and chalked to distress it a little. My little seashells which I've used for embellishments were picked from the beach when I was in Spain last month. The full recipe for my card is below this post.

Do pop over and take a peek at the other wonderful creations my friends and colleagues on the DT have made for you.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, see you all later.

I love your card Suzi, and I love that you picked the shells and didn't buy them, makes it so much more special knowing exactly where they came from. Love the string around the image, fabulous!

Suzi, your card is adorable, so soft with the sponging and threading. It reminds me of those days at the lake and you are just relaxing by the shore. said...
