Endless Summer


I have been thinking about the challenge over at Southern girls challenge - Endless summer since it started.  Summer is my favourite season and as a child it did seem endless.  Every summer our family would spend a fortnight camping at the beach and most of the time was spent either lazing on the beach or playing in the water.  Bliss!

I have decided to be a little different and combine Endless summer with some Christmas challenges.  I have never actually celebrated Christmas at the beach but our summer and Christmas do coincide.  So here is my card
Supplies:  White and blue card, Meljens digital tree, Diane Carubia digital beach scene, StampIt sentiment, Lyra pencils and Kindy Glitz

So I am off to join some challenges -
The Squirrel & the Fox - Christmas
Tammy's Scrapin Corner   - Anything Goes
Digi Galore Challenge - Christmas
Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge - #125 Christmas
Come and get it challenges - Anything Goes
Eclectic Ellapu #10 - Anything Goes
Platypus Creek Digitals  - Anything Goes
Card Makin Mamas: Happy Holidays
Simply Create; Anything Goes
Make it Monday: Anything Goes

I had hoped to make some mince tarts but they will have to wait until tomorrow. Take care and I will see you tomorrow.  Thank you for dropping by.
