Roll on Summer - CFC #140

Morning everyone!

There seems to be a Summer theme around blog land at the moment and this months CAS-ual Fridays challenge is no exception.  Michele's idea of Summer is tan, white and one other bright colour so here's what I came up with:

I die cut a kraft circle and inlaid it into the card, then added a die cut 'hello' which I coloured with Copics and covered in a thick layer of Glossy Accents. The clouds and sun are from Whimsy Stamps 'Happy Hello.' Anita pointed out that this fits with the current Time Out challenge too - be inspired by the words 'happy is the bride that the sun shines on' - so I'm popping it over there as well.

Just a very quick post today...unfortunately something called 'work' is getting in the way of my craft time...

Catch you later!
