It's Summer at Sparkles!

Hmmph, well that just reminds me that it's not Summer here. Damn opposite-side-of-the-world business! Although I must admit that watching the footage of the Jubilee I think you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between Australia and the UK weather wise recently. :)

So yes, back to the task at hand. I need to tell you of the newest challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges -


Yup, it's time to show us all your warm and summery creations.

For my card this month I purchased a brand new Meljen's Design image - Beach Kitten.

Aww, look at her in her sweet bikini. Maybe I have spent too many years with dogs and beaches - I keep thinking of the combination of sand and wet fur and, well, there's nothing pleasant in that combination! But this beach babe looks perfectly well behaved - sitting pretty with her shades on.

Our challenge this month is sponsored by the wonderful Lili of the Valley, who are offering a £10 prize to our lucky winner.

I hope you'll join us!

Also entered into the following challenges:
Creative Mondays - Summer
Craft Room Challenges - Furry Four Legged Family
Tuesday Throwdown - Critters
Polka Doodles - Summer Scene
Totally Papercrafts - It's Raining Cats and Dogs

Think you all 'down under' might be enjoying better weather than we are right now! Another super cute card just right for our Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe

Margaret said...

Aww... she is awful cute in her little swimsuit! Wonderful card!!
At the risk of being totally flaky and corny, I have to share what came to mind. You were talking about pets at the beach and having winter weather right now, and my wheels started turning that when we celebrate Christmas you have summer, and this could be the perfect Christmas card-complete with (wait for it...) Sandy Claws!! tee!hee! Told you it was corny!!

Tracy said...

LOL I agree. There's nothing pleasant about wet animal fur. :-) However this kitty is super cut in her swim suit. The colors are fun and bright too. Hugs!
