CCM # Here Comes Summer

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Here Comes Summer. The team will be taking a well earned Summer break after this challenge and we won’t be back until 19th August. I have chosen this camper van for my 'Summer' card because as soon as I saw it I was reminded of the Cliff Richard song of my youth, 'Summer Holiday'. That song, more than any other I think, captures the feeling of my youth and the long school holidays and our family trips to Cornwall. Mind you, more often than not it rained on our holidays! My Dad’s workmates used to tease, ‘find out what week Ray is booking off and then choose the week before or the week after’!

So my image is from Pink Ink Designs, and I coloured it with my copics. I added glossy accents to the windshields, the headlights and the three hearts at the bottom on the bumper. The extra stamps were made with the flowers that come with the camper van stamp and three sentiments from Kay Carley via Paper Artsy, and stamped with Tonic Nuvo Inkpads.

The dies are from Sue Wilson.
