Summer's coming with Creative Knockouts

Hi everyone

As I typed the title to this post I couldn't help but laugh as I looked out on the grey skies...looks more like winter's coming, lol. Oh well, we can but hope...

We've got a new challenge starting at Creative Knockouts

Our theme is 'Summer's coming' so we'd like to see your summer inspired projects. Here's mine...

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo who very kindly gave us some brilliant images to play with. I've used Gus Tidbits - At my age which I've coloured using Copics. I made a CAS card so Gus could take centre stage. I've matted using red card 1/8th" and then black card 1/16th". I rounded the corners of the image plate before matting and added card candi to the corners. I finished off adding the fab sentiment using a Spellbinder Petite Labels One die inked with faded jeans distress ink...

I hope you like him. Please pop over to the challenge and leave my very talented team mates some love.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I better go take my dog for a walk quickly while it's stopped raining. See you again soon.

Hugs Helen xx
