Summer's Nearly Here!

I don't like to tempt fate, but it does seem as if summer may be here! and to celebrate we have a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers - the theme is 'Summer Fun' so we want to see lots of colourful summery projects please!
I chose to use make a twisted gatefold card with this fun image of Chester eating his ice cream - what could be more summery?

Card Front:


Main image - 'Cool Chester' - LittleMiss Muffet Stamps
Ice cream image from internet (I managed to insert the sentiment using My Craft Studio)
Papers - 'Riverbank Revels' 12 x 12 pad by Helz Cuppleditch

It doesn't show up too well in the photo, but I used glossy accents on the sunglasses

New challenge at Passion for Promarkers

It's my turn to choose a theme for this week's challenge at PFP and it's another easy one - I'm just too kind to you!
I would like to see at least one heart on your projects for my '|Have A Heart' challenge. I chose to use the gorgeous 'James' from LOTV, he's so cute .I must admit, making the interlocking hearts for the front of my card was rather challenging as I'm still doing everything one-handed, but it came out OK in the end.
