Summer Sunshine @ MAWTT

As this post is scheduled I'm wondering if we will actually see any Sunshine this year!
If you're wondering why I haven't visited, I'm still away in the Lakes and there mustn't be any signal, else I would have visited you! I hope your missing me as much as I'm missing my blog and you guys!
It's day 3 of my mini marathon and this time its new challenge day at


and the very lovely,  newly married new teammie Claire is in charge today
and she wants to see some

lol don't we all! I hope all the rain means at least a heatwave later in the year!
For my card I've got little Lewis from the Prairie Fairy out again, I really love this little dude and this time I've tried to make it like he is in the water with a little artistic license the flowers and swirls represent waves! yes? no? lol
The papers are Fancy Pants and I've used Copics to colour. A little glossy accents on his glasses.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge and fab prize from this weeks sponsor

While you are there check out the fabulous inspiration from my lovely team mates.

That's all from me today, thank you for stopping by and having a look, and to those of you that do, thanks for the lovely comments, I still get excited when I see that I have a new comment lol

Love 'n 'Hugs Laurie xx

Re challenges, if I can I'll link up later
