Summer Daze - Joanna Sheen Challenge

Hiya everyone,

I am now on my holidays in Windermere as me and my family have rented a cottage for a week.  The weather has been dreadful so far but that hasn't dampened our spirits.  It's mainly a break to chill out and not do very much.  The cottage we have rented is set out over 3 floors and is like a TARDIS.  There are 2 bedrooms, 3 sitting areas and 3 bathrooms as well as free wi-fi, sky movies and sky sports.  I was a little worried about how good the internet was going to be but it's just as good as it is at home which is great.

Anyhoo, back to the new challenge starting over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog which is

Summer Daze

I have used my Joanna Sheen "sunflower" House Mouse stamp set which I have coloured in with my promarkers and flexmarkers.  I was quite pleased with my colouring considering it was my very first attempt at this image.
The papers are from an old daisy K&Co paperstack which I've had for ages.  I fancied using these papermania mini scrabble tiles so I decided on my sentiment as I only had a few letters left! Lol  The sunflower is made up of 2 yellow flowers and a brown button tied up with a bit of raffia. 

There is a random prize of £15 for the winner of the challenge as well as a coveted Guest Designer position up for grabs as well as our Top 3!

I can't wait to see all your summery creations and hope that you can join me and the rest of the DT!
