Having summer fun over at the Pollycrafts Monday challenge!

Well, I say that loosely because the weather in the UK this summer has been appalling so far!  Ok, we've had some sunshine, but we've had more rain!!  At least everything is green - but that means more gardening and you all know how much I HATE gardening!

Apologies...had my rant now...onto the challenge!  It's Pollycrafts Monday and this week the ever urber talented Marit is challenging us with the theme Summer Fun!  Here is my make for it...

 
 


I love this little guy Fishy from the recent Swings and Slides 2 release.  I chose it because the fish actually rise to the surface when it is raining - and I guess that's why fishing is so popular in the UK because we get plenty of it in the summer!!  Okay, not going to rant about the rain again... 

So this week we are being sponsored by one of my all time fave stores Quixotic Paperie and the prize is 2 packs of Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments - a worthy prize indeed!



I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Lime Twist Out of the Blue (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps:  Pollycraft Fishy, My Favorite Things sentiments
Mediums: Copics
Accents: Doodlebug ribbon

Tools: Nestabilities dies, EK Success border punch

This boy is so very cute... I like the way the fishing rod resembles a skipping rope.
