Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs: Summer


I'm back today with a a mid challenge post for Kitty Bee Designs current challenge: Summer.

I hope you've joined in already - if not why not stop by and see what the rest of my teamies have created for some inspiration. Here's my card:

I knew there was a reason I bought a die with a snail, starfish and scallop  on it - it's been sat in my drawer waiting for it turn to be used!!

I've used a image called Shave Ice Bunny - although to me it looked like neapolitan ice-cream and that how I coloured it.  I've since been informed that it a Hawaiian thing and is a finely shaved ice with syrup on it.  Sounds delicious - and it got me thinking does anyone remember having a Mr Frosty when they were little? (Might just be a UK / child of the 80's thing!)

I decided to make a shaker card, I've actually used gold embossing power to be the sand - I'm pleased with how it's turned ou,t I always think of Shaker cards for Christmas with plenty of glitter for snow - but sand is good too!

I'd like to be able to tell you where the paper came from - but I have no idea - it's been lurking around for a while! 

Anyway - I do hope you can join in with this challenge!

This is too cute! I love how you did the shaker card and the seaside dies are the perfect elements to add! Glad you got them outta the drawer and into use...I need to go through my drawers more often to remind myself about those things that don't get used often enough! Thanks for celebrating "Summer" with us at Crafty Creations this week!
