Summer Fun

Hello all,

How is everyone holding out now that summer is officially here in the states. It has been a hot week so far where I am. And rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for the next week. Guess not much floating on an swim ring around here much. But don't you just love this cute Sassy Cheryl image. She is so ready for a nice hot summer day.

I have colored her with my copics. I air brushed the water then added waterfall stickles to it for a little sparkle. The sky is created with a template I have and BG-000.I have a little bit of everything happening on this card. My papers are digi papers from Sherry K. The flip flops are a "charm" silhouette cut file. I added some cute flower bling I have had for years to the straps. I remember as a kid you could get those rubber flip flops with the big flowers on them. 

The "summer" speech bubble I created on my cameo super easy. I also cut the words "FUN" out to add. See a lot going on. Of course since she has some cute blinged flip flops I had to give her swim suit some sparkle bling too with cotton candy stickles. Her swim ring was given polka dots using a white sharpie. And I couldn't not add some pearls to match. LOL

I had fun creating this card. Sassy Cheryl creates some really fun images to work with.. 

Of course as a kid I would always end up with pink cheeks from the sun so I had to add a bit more pink on her cheeks even added a bit on her arms and legs.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I am entering this into the following challenges.
