Well it’s Friday again and that means Crafty Ann’s challenge, This is my last week as a GDT and I have really enjoyed it.This week we would like to see something to do with Lazy Hazy Days of Summer. I have used Ann’s Backing paper Wood grain Pastels light blue and lemon, and digi Tropical Beach. I have coloured the image with promarkers. Added some ribbon a flower and one of Ann’s sentiments. I do hope you like

This is stunning Doreen, I love the way you've used to woodgrain effect bp to give a watery effect - it's a perfect backdrop to the image which has been beautifully coloured. I've never had the courage to try promarkers on the scenic digis yet but you've shown just how effective they are. Thank you for your stint as GD, all your contributions have been outstanding and you've been a real asset.

Sorry Doreen - I am late catching up with this one.

We went to a Ruby Anniversary party last night and all blog hopping and commenting went out of the window.

Sadly I have no memories of a tropical beach such as this .. .. but I would be more than happy to give this one a try.

Great image coloured perfectly.

Hope you have had a good Saturday.

Love Jules xx

This is so summery and lovely, Doreen. The ticket sentiment is a nice touch and the flower sets the card off beautifully.
