MAWTT Challenge 105 - Here Comes Summer

It's Thursday and challenge time over at Moving Along With The Times
This week our theme is Here Comes The Summer
Perfect for the weather we have been having at the moment too, so grab those summery papers and stamps!
Our sponsor this week is Squidgi Digi, they are offering the lucky winner 4 Digi Images of there choice, how great is that?!
Here is my take on the challenge....
This is one of the fab new La La Land Stamps available in the UK at My Mums Craft Shop.

Isn't Marci just sooooooooooooo cute! I used Echo Park Splash Papers which worked perfectly with this stamp and for this challenge! I also used a Scallop Die-namic Die, Bakers Twine, Card Candi & Tim Holtz Adage Tickets (coming soon at MMCS!). I of course coloured her with my copics and used a Gelly Roll pen for her cheeks!

Sketch Notebook

I needed a new sketch book so i could scribble down all the card layout and sketches i find on challenges etc. I did make one but it's tiny tiny and no more room really so thought i would go the whole hog and get a much bigger one with tons of pages! Of course a plain black one wouldn't really go with all my pretty crafty stuff so of course it needed a bit of altering and glamouring up!
And here is what i came up with...

I made to look like my two little girlies, aren't they cute!! I used the cute WRS Mia Gardening & Mia With Flower stamps. Coloured them with Copics of course! Clouds are Die-namics Flat Bottom Clouds & Grass is a Martha Stewart Punch. The fence is a Magnolia die, letters are Thickers and tons of ribbon from my stash!
