Summer Time Challenge

Time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this week.  The theme of the challenge is summer.

One of the special things of summer for me are all the flowers in bloom.  My card was made using a cling rubber stamp from the Jofy collection from Paper Artsy coloured with Posca Pens and a white Gell pen . 

The background of the card was made using a Gelli Plate.  
The fence was cut with my Cricut and the sentiment was created with my computer.  

 Hope you will join in this challenge this week and tell us what summer means to you.  Pop over to our challenge blog to see the inspiring project of our design team. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day. 


  1. Fabulous Judy. I always think of flowers when I think summer. Probably because I don't do sunshine and holidays lol.
