It's a hard life....

Hello all - and I hope that your week has started well?  And I hope you're enjoying the sunshine - even though I know that it's a bit warm for some!  I love the sun - but I'm not enjoying the hay fever lol! I don't think sneezing, runny eyes and sniffles is my most attractive feature... And it's definitely a bit too hot during the day for Tilly the Dog, who just flops around the house and garden trying to find the coolest spot. However, I will never understand why she then goes and lies in the sun again until she's panting and scorching hot!  Ridiculous hound!  So, it's doggy walks in an evening and then, by the time I've wielded the watering cans round the garden and greenhouse, I'm ready for bed!

But I have a list of DT work to get done - not to mention a few family birthday cards - so as I'm not at work tomorrow I'll have to get started at the craft table!

But just wanted to share another of the new releases from Whimsy Digital with you - and this cute character is from Crissys Digis called 'You float my boat'


I've coloured the image with copics and promarkers, with some added pencil


The brown backing paper is from K&Co and the blue papers are from LOTV.  I've added twine and buttons from stash and printed a sentiment on the computer.  
I think on a hot summer's day this is what we should be doing! 
And thank you for all your good wishes about my daughter - and thankfully, she is feeling much better now (thank goodness for antibiotics!). 
Back soon,
Kim x 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
Creative Card Crew - great outdoors
PapertakeWeekly - old, new, borrowed, blue (new digi, blue papers, old buttons)
Eureka Stamps - beach
Get Inky - summer sun fun

  21. What a cute card, LOVE your image and beautifully coloured too.
    Tilly sounds as daft as my Ruby ... she scorches in the sun for ages and then flops into the shade exhausted. Daft dog.
