Summer @ Cards und More

Morning all.
When you thought Tuesday mornings had settled down well I'm her with some great news. After a spell as GD at Cards und More Challenge, Dunja asked if I would like to stay on and after some thought said -Of course. So this is my first post for my team since then. This time our theme is-


Well there have been lots of beach scenes from me so I thought it was time for something different. I was thinking of those hot lanscapes on the Tour de France coverage, but it's been a bit wet this time since it left glorious sunny Yorkshire! So, I looked through my stamps and after a few false starts I came up with this for my DT inspiration.

I've had this George stamp from Molly Bloom for years, I bought it from Harrogate show 6-7 years ago! My how time flies. The bridge is a more recent bargain bucket purchase. Combined they remind me of my husband's favourite pastime when he was younger, fishing in the local pond in the summer holidays.
I created a one- layer card by masking George then stamping the river bank on an A6 card. I coloured the whole scene using Copics.

OK, why not pop over to the main site and look at what the rest of the DT have come up with for your inspiration.
I shall enter the following challenges -
Loves Rubberstamps - Summer Fun
The Paper Shelter - Holiday Time
Cute Card Thursday - Fun in the Sun
Craft Calender Challenge - Summertime Fun
Moving long with the Times - Summer Colours (Photo)

Come back in an hour for the latest challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
