Gloria -s summer!

Morning all! I do hope you are well and happy? I had a fabulous day with my girls yesterday at a guiding event at Leighton Hall near Carnforth. It was great fun - they had a lovely time watching a magic show, making badges, suncatchers and bracelets, doing spacehopper and sack races, hunting for fairies in the wood and going on the climbing wall - brilliant work and a job well done to all the guiders involved!

I'm at a babyshower later today so I'll tell you how that goes tomorrow. But for today I'm back with a card - its another Mo Manning image - just can't seem to get enough of these at the moment!





I think the image is called Gloria - hence the title of the post - funny if she was called Josephine! I digress - I've printed out my image onto Neenah crest card and coloured using promarkers. Some of the papers were from a freebie stack from either quick cards or CMPC. The others have been in my stash forever. The flowers are WOC. I've used sizzix dies for two fluorishes, the shoes and glasses and the watermelon, the other die is the madera corner from memory box. The sentiment is hunkydory.

I'd like to enter my lovely summery card into the following challenges:
cupcakecraftchallenges: The great outdoors
PMSpapermakeupstamps: Endless Summer
Mishelflomishelfloschallenge: Long hot summer
