Digi Haven Challenge #3 - Summer

This week's challenge over at Digi Haven is a great one for me as its all about summer and bring on Summer I say, as we are mid winter here and its freezing and wet.

To play along with any of the Digi Haven Challenges you have to use a free digital image which can be a forever freebie or just one you found that is currently available for free for the duration of their challenge.



 


When I found the fun image I am using today I just knew it was the one for me.  When it comes to covering up, Slip Slop Slapping and all that at the beach I know what a site for sore eyes I must be with my snow white skin, broad brim hat and over-generously curved body...lol so I could totally relate to this picture, plus the umbrella reminded me of one my parents had when we were growing up.


I found the image here at the ScrapHappy Paper Crafter Blog.  I used my Tria Markers to color the image and teamed it up with some bright and summery papers from Echo Park and flowers from my stash.

My sentiment was left over pieces I had cut out with my Cuttlebug Typewriter Alphabet for another project. Layered over my background papers gives it a great striped appearance.

I so wish we had at least the warmth of summer here today if not the sunshine.


Other Challenges I am entering this card into are:

Cute Card Thursdays - #222 Here Comes Summer
LEJ Designs - #9 Summer's Here
Try it One Tuesdays - Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - #152 Summertime Girls

Hi Danie! this looks fabulous, and we could use the umbrella today...... but not for sunshine!! it has been raining since monday!!!

Denise said...

Hi Danie!!!! Glad you could join us at Digi Haven this week. I love this card and what a cute image! I'll have to scoop this one and add it to my free digi pc files. It's perfect! I too spend my days at the beach under an umbrella with a big hat and 50 gallons of sunscreen, lol. I'm a natural redhead with light skin so although I love the beach, the sun doesn't love me. Great papers, awesome coloring and a terrific design! ♥ Denise @ Digi Haven.

Love this! I'm the same way at the beach. Ha, ha. Hard to believe though that someone lives where it is still cold. Today we so far have reached 104 degrees (f) in the shade in Texas!!! I'd love to add this digi to my collection and went to the site but so far I haven't found it. She has a lot of free digis! Is there a direct link maybe to help me out. Thanks! Oh and thanks for joining in on our Digi Haven Summer challenge, hope to see you again next week!
