Hot Summer Fun

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  At last, the weekend is here!  Hope you've had a good week and you have some fun plans for the weekend!  The sun is shining today, so I'm looking forward to getting out and about.  But before I do, I'm here to post my DT card for this week's Alcohol Marker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Our theme this week is " hot summer fun".  We're thinking fun at the beach, pool, park, whatever summer fun means for you.  Please remember that you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project to enter.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park A Perfect Summer 6x6 pad.  My fun image is Gloria from Mo's Digital Pencil.  You can find her in Mo's store here.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bunch of Stickles for sparkle and Glossy Accents to her glass.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I spelled out summer fun with a chipboard alpha set from the Basic Grey Fact & Fiction collection.  A pair of sparkly 3-D flip flops finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Marker Challenge and check out the fun summer creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will be inspired to play along with us!  We have a new sponsor for the month of August.  One randomly-selected participant in this month's challenges will win 3 digis of their choice from LilyPinkScraps Etsy shop, the shop of our very own DT sistah, Dawn!  Be sure to pop over there and check out Dawn's great digis!  As always, there are also lots of fantastic site-wide monthly prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday #269 (sketch)
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge (summer holiday)
Mo's DP2 Challenge #196 (G is for ... Gloria, in my case)
Charisma Cardz #30 (up in the clouds; I colored in clouds)

Here is SS-269:

Have a great day and see you soon!

  1. Oh Carla, I just love this image.. that is where I am spending my summer between the heat outside and the hot flashes inside!! She is colored so beautifully, too... I also cannot thank you enough for sharing your inspiration with the Create with TLC sentiments- they are fast becoming my "go to" as the fonts are perfect and the sentiments even better! xxx Ann Marie

  20. You make the funniest cards Carla! This one made me laugh because back in April I attended a wedding down in St. Lucia and the hotel we were staying had a lazy river where you could grab a tube and sit like that all day, which was a total relief from the heat; especially when you went under waterfall bridges.
    You've coloured the image spectacular and of course your papers are terrific. I like all the little extra bling too! Love the sketch, totally fantastic card!
