Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - Summer Fun

Hi Crafters,
 
It's lovely to see some new followers here - 'Welcome, I hope you enjoy what I create and share'.
A big thank you to all my long term followers too for sticking with me thus far, I really appreciate your presence and comments.
 
Now on to the task at hand...Today is a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and Brenda has chosen appropriately for the weather.... 'Summer Fun'.
 
Our sponsor is 2 Cute Ink and I am using Sand Castle Crab for my card.
 
Recipe
Image  - 2 Cute Ink - Sand Castle Crab
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Papers - Bo Bunny - Barefoot Bliss
Cloud Die - Clearly Besotted Stamps
Sentiment - Art Impressions
 
Quite a clean and simple card for me today as the papers did most of the work. I just had to use that word paper, I love it. I had great fun colouring in Mr Crab and his sandcastle with my Promarkers, he looks like he's having great fun there on the beach, don't you think?
I'm sure you can come up with some fabulous projects linked to our theme this time so we look forward to seeing your entries on the blog.
 
Challenges I'd like to enter:
I Love Promarkers - #276 Summer
 
Well that's it from me for today, see you soon,
 
Lorraine

The word paper is ideal with the cheeky crab and sandcastle. A lovely feeling of the seaside. Elaine

Oh my Lorraine I saw this on FB when I came home from work, supping my tea.
I LOVE it. I have a thing for the beach and crabs, just a perfect job. Love the image and how you've coloured it and the background.
I had a big grin on my face when I saw it, which is very difficult to do with a mouth full of tea!

Hugs Erika.

Hi Lorraine! Your card reminds me of my yard currently. This past week I think we've gotten 6+ inches of rain and currently I feel like I own beachfront property! Your card is SO much fun with that crab building his sandcastle!
Just wanted to come by and say thank you so much too for your very thoughtful comment you left on my blog. The encouragement was much appreciated!
Biggest of hugs to you,

The papers and dies make a gorgeous beach scene for your cute little crab...I never knew they liked to build sandcastles...or maybe he's about to knock it down - lol!

Big hugs, Kat xx
