Summer fun at Creative Moments

Good morning!
The optional theme for this fortnight's challenge at Creative Moments is 'summer fun'...with an added twist of using punches or dies...or of course 'anything goes'!
We have 2 great sponsors this time, Sparkle N Sprinkle and Scribbles. I was given  this fab tropical drink image to use, coloured with copics and added glossy accents all over the glass. The little cocktail glasses are cut with a punch my daughter gave me years ago when I first started crafting, I punched them from white cardstock and coloured them with copics to match the colours in the main image, again i covered them with glossy accents. The papers were a magazine freebie.  I followed athis sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
Summer seems to have deserted us here right now, can't complain as we've had some wonderful weather so far this year, just seems a shame that as soon as school's out the weather changes! Hopefully the sun will reappear soon!
Thanks for visiting!

Hi Chris saw your card over at Creative Moments and knew that was my sketch I designed and I was so hoping that you would enter it over here at SSW2. Love your card it warms me up as its winter here in New Zealand. Is it iced tea or something a little stronger? I know what you mean about the weather, my boys went back to boarding school on Monday evening after two weeks holiday, it rained for nearly two weeks and as soon as they went back it was a wonderful day on Tuesday fine and sunny. Loving your card and colours and thanks so much for sharing your work with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
