A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #58

I've another summery card to show you, which fits with this weeks theme of 'Summer' over on A Spoon Full of Sugar.

This fab image I saw on a card recently on a blog hop, but for the life of me I can't remember where, so I'm very sorry about that. But I do have the link for this fab free digi-image by Hambo, click here. Coloured with copics, blender and watercolour pencils with a waterbrush then inked edges in blue. Mounted image onto 3 scalloped circles cut with nesties from yellow glitter card and inked edges in green. The spotty DP is a scrap Funky Fairys piece. Ribbon is from stash and flowers and brad are all from The Range. The whole card shape was done by drawing a semi-circle with a compass and cutting by hand. I had a few ideas for sentiments but couldn't decide which so I've left it sentiment free for now so I can use the most appropiate one when using the card.
We went off to Mablethorpe again yesterday for the day, a proper beach day with swimming in the sea, a picnic and of course an ice-cream. It was another gorgeous day and there was a nice sea breeze which took the edge off the intense heat. Today is really muggy, we had quite a downpour this morning with a small thunderstorm, but it was enough to give us a powercut for a good hour. The garden needed the rain thats for sure. We still need a good storm to clear the air though, I hate it when it's muggy. I hope everyones managing to keep cool!!
Thanks for visiting and any comments are much appreciated.
