Lazy Hazy Summer Days for Sir Stampalot

Good morning and welcome to the Sir stampalot challenge for July where the theme is Lazy Hazy Summer Days. I love to wander by the sea, so made a tri shutter card with a seaside theme. The top and bottom small panels were stamped with Crafty individuals seaside elements in distress inks. The central panel was made using a set of clear hobby art Harbour stamps. These are so versatile you can create little scenes so easily. The left and right panels were made using 'Friends'  stamps. I coloured all three with promarkers.
But what is the prize I hear you ask? Feast your eyes on these!
What a wonderful prize, eh?  I wish I could enter myself! So, get your thinking caps on, your summery stamps out and pop over to the Stampalot challenge blog for more inspiration! Thanks for looking and I look forward to seeing your entries!

Not long to go now and you'll be on your mega Summer Hols, lol.

Hi Sal

What a brilliant make .. .. .. I recognise all of those scrummy stamps!!

A great way to use them all - very ingenious and very much "summer".

Hope all is well with you.

Love Jules xx
