Challenge 88 - summertime...

Yoohoo! Summertime and the livin' is eaaaasyyyyy, summertime.... summertime??? Huh where has it gone? My part of the world appears to have been transported into some weird monsoon world. Well without the heat but when it rains its exceedingly wet rain. You know the sort that seems to be extra big drops that make you wet in about 2 seconds. Oh and can you guess who found out today that her jacket isn't shower proof?.... Oh that'll be me then! It felt lovely I could have been walking around wrapped in a wet towel! Oh I'd laughed at my friend in her husbands coat..... then she pointed out that that coat was waterproof. Oh well I guess I need a new one.

Thanks to you who came to play with our sketch last week, the RPT has done his stuff and the winner of the Joanna Sheen voucher is Inge Email me and include the challenge number in the title and I'll sort your prize for you.

So whats the challenge this week... Well... now this will make you laugh (or scream) when I set the challenges I must have been in a dream world. You know almost the middle of July.... nice hot sunny days, warm balmy evenings sat in the garden.... hmmm you read what I said earlier? Anyway I picked Summertime! hah what a laugh! So please show us something summery, it might be all we get! This week we're kindly sponsored by Crafters Companion The lucky winner will get £10 to spend online! How fab is that - have you seen the new stamps? They're lovely!

So the Gorjussettes have made some dazzling samples as always. get your shades on folks!

So there you are - something summery!

So we'd love to see what you make!

Please remember our few rules - new stuff only, link to her from your blog, link to your entry and no back dating.


  1. Summertime here means 110 to 120 degrees. Have seen it as high as 127! Now of course we stay inside as much as possible but that gives me time to work on my favorite hobby, making cards! Really other than the 3 months of hot weather it is very nice here.

    Thanks for the challenge.
