Polkadoodles Challenge 28 - Summer

Welcome to another Polkadoodles challenge! Already we are upto week 28 which means we are getting closer to Christmas! But this week the challenge is all about summer!

I've made two sets of simple notecards with summery images! Both sets use the Sundae of Season's cd and I used the cropping tool on Adobe to select the area I wanted to print. And then repeated the image onto a sheet of A4 card so I could cut it all out as one. The beach huts fit 3 to a sheet of A4 and the kits 4 to the same sized sheet. The trickiest bit was doing the measuring to make sure that all the cards were the same size!

I've doodled a line around the edges of each card and used buttons from my stash. The button twine is from The Ribbon Girl.
I had a great time choosing which buttons to go with each set! The kites show off three of the colours in the kite with the beach huts going for a pearlescent or white button.

Good luck with the challenge - closing date is Sunday 24 July at 12noon GMT and please remember our rules!

My cards fit the following challenges:

Crafts and Me: Summertime
Divas By Design: Pastels (beach huts)
Papertake Weekly: Hot colours (kites)
Party Time Tuesday's: Blue Skies and Sunny Days
  • All images: Sundae of Seasons cd

  • Everything else: My stash
