Just For Fun - New Challenge

Welcome to all my fellow Bloggers, Crafters and great Friends. 
I get so excited when I see the comments that people have left for me, Thank You. 

Its mid month so that means only one thing...... Mid way inspiration post for the Just For Fun Challenge Blog!

Our Challenges are monthly and Run from the 1st of each month. We used to have two teams, team A who posted at the start of the month, and Team B who posted inspiration on the 16th of the month.
We have now joined both teams and we all post on the 1st of the month.
This is the first month of the new schedule.

We have nice easy themes, that can be adapted to be used in any form of crafting. We accept all forms of crafting, as long as it fits our challenge themes. 

This months Just For Fun theme is "Here Comes Summer", so a really nice and easy one that brings out thoughts of bright colours and fun.  

I had a looked around the Digi Sites for an image that was summery and fun and cute.
I ended up choosing a Mo Manning Image called Lacie

Here is what I have made.....

What I have used - 

- Mo Manning Image - Lacie 
Faber-Castell Pencils
- Papers from a Summer Theme Pad
- Orange Pearlised card from PayPer Box

You've captured this delightful image perfectly with your bright and cheery colour combo, superb colouring in as always, I love how you've laid the card out, without taking any of the attention from the image! Beautiful Lisa, without wanting to sound patronising! Your card making is improving all the time due to your eye for attention and colours xx Zoe xx

Love this fun card - so summery with your warm colours. The backing papers are gorgeous and the touch of gloss on the ice cream looks great. Brilliant colouring again - you should have a Princess of the Pencils badge....remind me to speak to Erin about that!
