Beachtime Fun

Well we're in the height of the summer now and what a perfect way to send summer happiness than this darling card for the start of the new sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. We're featuring images from StampFairy this week and they are so darn cute!

This is such a fun sketch this week drawn up by our talented Sally. I love all the fun paper combinations you can use - they really draw attention to the focal panel.


We're so happy to welcome back StampFairy as our weekly sponsor. Gerda illustrates the most adorable teddies, kids, bunnies and other sweet characters to create with. You'll always find something cute at StampFairy!

The grand prize winner of our challenge this week will receive a $10 gift certificate at the StampFairy shop - a super generous prize package. Thanks Gerda for your wonderful sponsorship this week!

I chose this sweet StampFairy girl from the Patsy Beachtime collection to create some inspiration for you this week.  She was brought to life with Copic markers and the papers are appropriately called Summer Splash from My Mind's Eye. The pinwheel embellishment was created with a die from Stampin' Up.

So there you have it - a fun summer card for those August birthdays or to celebrate the start of a beachtime vacation.  Be sure to stop by Sweet Sketch Wednesday and gaze at our design team cards using a selection of StampFairy images, including some terrific ones from the StampFairy design team too.  You'll be inspired by everyone's creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!
