It's Groovy Baby!

Well are you sick of summer yet? I'm not it can stay as long as it likes, loving the heat and being out in the air instead of cooped up indoors. Sadly though it looks like it's going to break today, I just hope it's a minor blip!

Anyway, over at Polka Doodles this week we are celebrating SUMMER, so we want to see all your summer themed cards. The prize this week is a copy of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD . Remember, that whilst we'd be thrilled if you used a Polka Doodles image, it's not compulsory, so I really hope that you'll pop over and join us this week.

I used the fabulous Taylor "Camping Day" by the hugely talented Emma Canning for my card. As soon as I saw her, she shouted "groovy" and images of flowers and peace symbols sprang to mind. Unfortunately, my card didn't quite translate from my head to paper, so I'm not thrilled with it and keep looking at it thinking I will re-make it.

I die cut an easel card using my circular nesties and then covered it in papers from the All Around & Everywhere CD  .The sentiment was computer generated using a font from DaFont, I simply changed the font colour and printed it directly onto the orange polka dot paper, before cutting it out and mounting onto the card using silicone glue. To give it more dimension I've added some Glossy Accents. The flowers with buttons are taken from the Sundae Of Seasons CD.

Taylor was coloured with Promarkers and I've added some sparkle to her dress with my new Copic Atyou Spica Pen. Her glasses and boots have been Glossy Accented and to finish I've added a little punched flower and gem to hairband.

Well that's me about done, I hope you all have a fab weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
