Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - July Challenge

Happy Wednesday and welcome to the July Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday challenge! I just returned from an overseas vacation on July first, I have lots of catching up to do and my brain is still on "vacation mode" half of me feels like I am still in a different time zone, so I am keeping this post sweet and simple.

We're in the midst of Summer so for this month the theme is

 "Summertime is Here"

This means you may share anything summer related...summer activities, summer flowers, summer celebrations etc.
I can't wait to see what you come up with!


Fitting for today's Independence Day holiday, I created my Summer card using the cute image "Waiting for the Parade" by Mo Manning. Unfortunately Mo Manning just retired this cute image last month along with some others.
This cutie has been colored with Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils. The brick wall was done using a stencil, unfortunately I don't remember the brand of the stencil, but you can find several brands on Amazon if you're interested. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Heartfelt.
