OSAAT Challenge 111 - Here Comes Summer

It's challenge time on the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog and the theme this week is "Here Comes Summer". Our lovely sponsor this week is Creative Craft World who is offering the winner of this week's challenge three brilliant Promarkers.



To win this smashing prize you will need to use one of the hundreds of gorgeous images in the Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps store. If you use a non Stitchy Bear image you will be entered into a draw for a prize of a $3 gift coupon to spend in the store. Using a non Stitchy Bear image you may enter the challenge three times only.

 Why not pop along and check out the designs and be ready for our Stitchy Bear only Challenge in June, exciting stuff!

I chose an image from Stitchy and she's called short shorts.  I've used a paper from Polkadoodles and a piece of purple card from my stash for the background and cut her with an oval Spellbinders die.  I've added  three flowers from Wild Orchid and a Memory Box die cut.  The sentiments are computer generated with the lines from a song in the 50's by the Royal Teens.  There's a fascinating article in Wikipedia here  about the guys in this group and how they went on to join some world famous bands.  Apparently the song appears in the stage musical of the Jersey Boys.
