Inky "Summer Fun" blog hop

Good morning all

I'm sorry about the weird font and formatting on this post - don't know what bloggers doing but this is the best I can do with it -I've messed on for ages - you should have seen it before!!


Today being the 15th of the month means its time for  the Inky Impressions Design Team Blog Hop! this month our fabulous Inkettes have been making creations for the the theme

 'Summer Fun'! 

we are all sharing some Inky Impressions creations that are perfect for the summer!  Also, be sure to comment along the way, you never know where a prize may be hiding!

Here is the Blog Hop Order:
Inky Impressions Inspirational Blog
Judith - thats me!
Mary J 
Inky Impressions Challenge Blog
You should have arrived here from Joni's blog if so you're doing fine and in the right place -your next stop is Kerry.  The prize this month is an Ink Impressioncharacter or animal stamp of your choice and a sampling if gorgeous inky charms. To be eligible for a prize youmust leave a comment by 20th July.

I couldn't think of better little lady than Beachbound Lili to use for a summerfun creation.  I had bought some gorgeous My Minds eye papers at Michaels when I was in Florida with a real vintage colour theme - I hadn't seen them before and thought Lili would make a perfect little 60's babe to use with them. Be sure to check out our newest stamps from our May release, they are ALL about summer!

She's looking a bit pale in this photograph - she's really got a much better tan than this - cos she's been on holiday anywhere but here!!  I thought it would make a perfect retirement card for a dear friend of mine who retires in a couple of weeks and plans a lovely 
cruise holiday - and lots of other holidays! -after her retirement.

Here's what I did....

Stamp - inky Impressions - beach bound Lili
Coloured with copics, a touch of prismacolor pencils and white gel pen
Dies - all spellbinders
Flowers - wild orchid crafts
Charm - Inky impressions butterfly
Pearls - inky impressions flat back pearls
Sentiment - lili of the Valley
Papers - MME Sophie
Lace - Michaels reflections
Ribbon from my stash

Hope to see you at the hop!
