It's Mousie Monday again.............and here comes Summer !!!

Here comes Summer is this week's theme at House Mouse & Friends - yeah, right!!!
This is the choice of the lovely Christine and I'm holding her totally responsible for putting a jinx on the weather -  it's bloomin' freezing here today!!

I love this image, it reminds me so much of being taken to the seaside with my parents when I was a child, going in the sea to paddle or swim and coming out dripping wet, teeth chattering and freezing with cold just like the Gruffie on the right !!! 
My mother always insisted we put suncream on also - WHY - hardly saw the sun on a typical English summer day.
My Gruffies are coloured with the usual Copics and I've stamped a frame around them with the edge of a Stampelglede grunge stamp. My paper is some vellum I've had for donkey's years (used to go on those at the seaside too - donkeys that is), the sentiment is computer generated and the postcard stamp is  Lili of the Valley from the clear additions range.

Check out the fabulous fun creations our Guest designers Kendra and Brenda have created along with the rest of my teamies !!

I shall be back later with some Lili of the Valley  cards - I've been colouring images and think it's time I turned them into cards.

Thanks for stopping by - hope you all have a great week

Love the bubbles of the background & I love the shading on that ball. The Stempelglede stamp is amazingly effective the way it picks up on the bubble shape too.

Oh yes, English summers at the seaside, I remember them exactly as you describe! Sitting on the beach after a swim with all the towels wrapped around me trying to get warm again, good old North Sea! Thanks for making me so welcome at HM&F, definitely see you next time, but as a participant! Looking forward to challenge 100!
