Careful, Don't Fall In!


It is another hot, sunshiny day which is perfect for the start of this week's challenge over on the Charisma Cardz blog where our theme this week is SUMMER.

We have some great sponsors who have generously offered up some wonderful prizes.

 
All that Scraps

One lucky winner will receive 4 stamps or 1 stamp set.

and
Joanna Sheen


 who have offered up a £10 Voucher for another lucky participant.
Now for my card...

As you can tell, this was the card that I gave my dad for Father's Day. He spent two years as part of the canoe club so when I saw this image, I knew I had to have it. 
It has been coloured up in bright cheery colours which match these Lime Twist papers from MME perfectly. 


On the inside I added a little pocket to tuck the gift certificate that I was giving him. This left just enough room at the top for me to add a little note.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope that you will join us!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
