Stamp Something - summer fun!

This week at Stamp Something we'd like to see your 'summer fun somethings', and we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are providing our winner with a $20 gift certificate to spend in their fab online store :o)



I'm not sure what's going on with my photos!  I've tried sooo many times to take a decent pic of this card and they're all a bit rubbish - you can hardly see my sky and there's a weird orange glow on the surfboard that isn't there in real life... no idea why!

I've used one of the fab images from the July offer of the month at DigiStamp Boutique - Molly and Tom summer fun (this one is Tom obviously!).  I've coloured the image with promarkers and added glossy accents on the fish, glasses and surfboard... the surfboard was a mistake though, I should have left it alone!  The papers are from the gorgeous Echo Park 'walk in the park' pad, with coredinations cardstock.  The sentiment is made up from 2 Elzybells stamps, tag was cut on the Cricut, the ribbon, button and twine are from my stash  and I added some orange card candy.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I don't seem to have enough time to get everything done at the moment... the boys have actually been quite good today, not too much squabbling anyway, but we've spent the afternoon at the park which obviously means I've not made any cards today.  Tomorrow I'm going to a Busy Bees dabble day with a crafty friend - I'm not demoing at this one, but it's not often we get the chance to craft together so we thought we'd go along and have a fun day.  So really I should be in the craft room right now getting something made, but I want to do some commenting too... oh wouldn't it be nice to gain a few extra hours when you need them?!
