Celebration of 'Summer'

Hello to everyone in blogland.
Sorry I'm only managing to post my DT cards at the minute, time is limited and I'm hoping that in the school holidays things settle down and become less manic! End of term is always busy for me as Chair of a preschool as there are so many loose ends to tie up so that September return isn't a nightmare!
I must apologise also for my lack of commenting on all your lovely work, I promise I shall be back asap!
My card this time for Fussy and Fancy is following the theme of 'Summer', such a popular one with so many lush stamps and papers out there. Our sponsors this week are MelJen's Designs - 4 digi's and Love to Stamp - $15 gift voucher! Please visit my teamies blogs if you get the chance as there work is truly amazing!

Here's a view of the wonderful dimension that a shutter card creates. Sorry if the photo's aren't that clear, I must have done them in a hurry!
It's a shutter card following the fab sketch over at Magnolialicious Highlights created by the lovely Mindy. I've created a seaside themed card, as long hot summer days are perfect at the beach! I have lots of childhood memories of beach holidays spent rock pooling, collecting shells and paddling in the sea and I try to take my children on coastal adventures as often as I can.

SU cardstock and Blueberry crisp papers
SU photo corner punch and leaf punch
SU linen thread
SU Seaside shell stamps
Hero Arts self adhesive lace
Magnolia Surfing Tilda and seaside background (sorry for not having the correct names for these stamps but haven't got time to look up)
LOTV Sentiment
Nesties Labels two
Shell charms from bunny zoes
TH Disress inks and SU inkspots
Flowers from stash

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Sir Stamp-a-lot  - Anything Goes

Will be back tomorrow with my Allsorts card.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, I truly adore your wonderful comments!

Oh my goodness Nicola your card is fabulous! I love the shutter design and how you decorated it is inspirational! Love your colouring and the gorgeous beach theme too. Sounds like you're busy but hopefully as you say it'll pay off in September :). Also love that you take your children on coastal adventures, I did that with mine too and I enjoyed it as much as they did, you can't beat a bit of rock pooling :D, and they'll have those wonderful memories too later on. Have a good weekend and hope it isn't raining where you are! Hugs, Chris x
