Summer Fun

With all this rain and all the Christmas in July goings on, why not show a bit of sunshine?

Here's Bugaboo's Fanny enjoying her holidays. Used a few of my new Papertrey goodies too (gingham stamp and ric rac die). The theme at Passion for Papertrey is Sweet Sweet Summer and so I'm entering this card into their challenge

Remember, we still have a Blog Hop going over at Catch The Bug so head on over for all the details. There'll also be mini challenges each day this week but if you want a head start on things, the titles have been released over at Catch The Bug.

Made this card for the following challenges:
Designed to Delight ~ Lets Go to the Beach
Secret Crafter ~ Holiday
Prairie Fairy Fridays ~ On Holiday
Off The Wall ~ Beachy
