Dog Hot Days of Summer.....

Good morning bloggers and as today is Thursday that can only mean on thing - a new challenge at Delightful Challenges. The theme this week is:

THE DOG HOT DAYS OF SUMMER

I just went and put the Hot Dog days of summer and couldn't figure out what was quite wrong!!  This is not a phrase we tend to use here in the UK - more like The Raining Cats and Dogs Days of Summer but hey we can get into the spirit of this we can use our imagination can't we??  When I think of summer I always think of strawberries - mmmmm yummy, they are always at their peak for my birthday in the first week of July.  With that in mind I made my card for the DT and here it is:


I have used the super cute Strawberry Delight by Wendy and teamed her up with Strawberry Balloons these are both available at Digital Delights.  She has been coloured with Copics and Prismas and then cut and matted with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  The sentiment is also by Wendy and that has been cut and matted with Nesties.  The papers are a mixture of K and Co and DCWV both really old stacks!  The butterfly and corner dies are MFT and the border is made with an EK Success punch.  The ribbon, charm and gem are all from my stash.  We are sponsored this week by:


Joanna Sheen is kindly giving the winner a £10 Store Voucher.  So get your thinking caps on and enter the challenge - you don't need to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love to see them and your entry can then be entered twice!  For more inspiration please pop over to Delightful Challenges and see what the talented Design Team have come up with - some great inspiration there.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Birthday
My Mum's Craft Shop - Birthday Girls
Whimsy - Summer Fun
Crafty Sentiments - Food Challenge


I'd like to know what is going on with Blogger and all these blasted ads that are everywhere - they are now all over the comment box!  Is anyone else fed up with them or is it just me?  Well that's it for me for today looks like another dull one here in Blackpool! Have a great day wherever you are, thanks for looking and take care xx
