Crafty Catz Challenge's Summertime!

Good morning, over at Crafty Catz we have a fabulous new challenge for you, the optional theme this week is 'Summer' chosen by Billie who is hosting this week.

We are lucky to have The Paper Shelter sponsor us this challenge

with a lovely prize of 3 digis for our lucky winner.

I used a sweet image I already owned , Not Big Enough, I've had this cute image for ages and finally got around to colouring it whilst on holiday last month., I thought she was perfect for the summer theme!
My eldest granddaughter also made a card with this cutie, she found a printed image in my 'to colour when I get time ' box (they're always rifling through it looking for something that takes their fancy.:)
Here's Livvy's card
She made it last year when she was 11, I showed her how to make an easel card base, but it's all her own work and design. She coloured the image with promarkers, I think it's brilliant!!! 
Please hop over to Crafty Catz to see the lovely summery creations from the team,  I hope you choose to play along with us...remember anything goes, the theme is optional.
Thanks for stopping by,
Have a lovely weekend

Hi Chris,
what a super summery design and all the lovely papers and elements that go with that super image.
Your Granddaughters card is very brilliant and she sure does have your talent.
My Granddaughter tries but has no idea and has to be shown what to do.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
