Here Comes Summer

It's time for another Craft Room Challenge and it's the turn of the lovely Maria to choose the theme and she has chosen Here Comes Summer.

This is what Maria has to say about why she has chosen the theme.
We're all hoping that summer is on it's way, and it certainly seems to be after a glorious couple of weeks here in the UK, and some of you will be thinking of your summer holidays too, so I thought this would be a perfect theme for this time of year.  Your creation can be anything you want, cards, scrapbook layouts, wall hangings, altered items, in fact anything whatsoever which makes you think of summer.

Our very kind sponsor for this fortnight's challenge is Liz Welch from Rarebird:

Please click on the banner to visit Liz's online shop, Rarebird, with all the Friendly Plastic you could ever want, together with lots of exciting things to use with it. 

This is the card I have made for the challenge.

I decided to use some Creative Expressions stamps that I've had for a long time and don't get used very often.
The background was coloured with Distress inks and the images were stamped onto white card. I coloured them with Promarkers, then cut them out and adhered them to the card.

This is a close up of the plane and banner.

The rest of the DT have made some beautiful samples so please take a trip to the Craft Room Challenge to take a look.
