"Summertime" with Elisabeth Bell's Challenge

Good morning to you all

Fingers crossed this has posted at the correct time :)

I was thrilled the other week to be lucky enough to be chosen as a winner at

thank you ladies, and I got to choose two lovely digi images, took me ages as you can imagine, but that was not all of the winnings, as they also asked me if I would like to be a Guest Designer for them, well it would have been so rude not too, and I so enjoyed playing to create this little number to meet the challenge theme of


So I do hope you will hop over and join in the challenge, and here is my creation
I decided it was about time I used up some of my purchases from Whichcraft, so used this centre step card to create a scene of Summertime.  The pearl strings from the Hobby House are representing the pebble pathway, the lovely layer of blooms from Clickit4Crafts is the flower border.  The little fence is cut on my silhouette as is the little open gate.  I used a Marianne die to create the grass (three layers of colours), I added the beautiful trellis from the Floral Frame set by Wild Rose Studio. I added more flowers on the trellis.  I added two little birds coloured with copics.  The silhouette cut sunshine.  The Memory Box clouds.  The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio from the birthday greetings set. The oval decorative die is a nestie.  The image pierced die from My Mum's Craft shop, loving this at the moment.  The image is from those new Hobby House Art Colouring Books Elisabeth Bell - Merry Weather and believe it or not the papers that you can hardly see are from Lidl.

Here is the straight on view

and the close up of that beautiful image coloured in copics
