We're having a ball at Sweet Stampin'!

Happy Saturday sweeties! My card for this weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin' was inspired by all the beautiful summer weather we've been enjoying (well some of us have enjoyed it!!!). The theme for this weeks challenge is' Balls', - which can be interpreted in a number of ways.....As you can see I chose a beach ball to go with this fabulous Mo Manning image! Gloria certainly knows how to enjoy life! She is coloured with copics and mounted onto various 'beachy' papers. The beach ball is paper pieced and so are the cute little bucket and spade and beach signpost! I had a ball making this card!
Pop over to the Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see how the rest of the team have interpreted this challenge, hopefully you'll be inspired to join us this week, we'd love to see your interpretations too! We are sponsored by My Mums Craft Shop and the Ribbongirl, so don't miss out on the chance to have some fun and maybe win some fabulous prizes!
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely weekend!
