Water Lily Skiing

Good morning Everyone, 
I can't believe it's Saturday already! This time last week my two gorgeous children were trying to kill each other, but today (thankfully) nice, happy well behaved children!!! Bliss!
Today's card is made with a rubber stamp from Penny Black called 'Water Lily Skiing'. I started making this last night for a friend who takes her boys water skiing and she loves the cute cards so I thought this would be perfect for her.
I've coloured the image with my promarkers. The background papers are from Crafters Companion and Me to You.
I've used my spellbinders edgeability dies, memory box cloud dies and some new flower dies from Marianne creatables. The flowers are from WOC.
I finished off with a bit of bling and some ribbon from my stash.
Well I hope the rain stays away today, Tom is going to a local Air Museum with his Beavers group this afternoon. It has poured down on every trip he has done this year so far!


I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Summer Time
Penny Black & More - Summer Blooms
Mariannes Design Diva's - Animal Antics
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Here Comes Summer
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Water Themed.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Thank you for taking the time to visit me today and for all your lovely comments.
