Spotlight on BLD Summer Time Gidget & Todd!

It's another showcase of the new By LoRi Designs June release!  This week we are showcasing Summer Time Gidget and Summer Time Todd!  And Im here today to show you what I made with Summer Time Gidget!

My goodness, this just makes me want to get out to the beach RIGHT NOW!  Unfortunately, the UK summer is more like autumn so no chance!!  Still, I can dream!  I matched her up with the new Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here) and I used a Quickutz die cut for that umbrella, edged with Colorbox brown chalk ink.  You can see the rest of the brilliant DT makes here!

I hope you liked my card!  Thanks for visiting me and all of your sweet comments - I love reading them all!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Bazzill kraft cardstock (from Quixotic Paperie here),  Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: By LoRi Designs Summertime Gidget, My Favorite Things sentiment
Mediums: Copics, Sakura white gel pen, Colorbox brown chalk ink
wired organza ribbon in sunflower and natural web ribbon (from Bunny Zoe's here and here)
Tools: Fiskars border punch, Martha Stewart border punch, Quickutz beach umbrella, Nestabilities lable die inside card

A fantastic card. I love the beach scene and miss the sun. I do miss the people and our life in Sydney, but it's been lovely seeing family and friends here and when we've been here a bit longer I should feel more settled.
