Summer bear card

Happy Summer days to you all in the Northern Hemisphere, it's cold here in Melbourne Australia! Although I mustn't complain as we have had the best couple of weeks with some lovely warm days considering the time of year. I am enjoying making summer cards anyway, I'll just turn the heating up to help with inspiration lol.

Please remember to follow me on Bloglovin as I think the Google following is about to finish today. I have the Bloglovin' icon on the right hand side of my blog to quickly keep following me (of course, that's just if you want to keep following me lol).

This summer bear is from Stamp Fairy and I just love him to bits! He was so cute to colour and then I made some clouds behind him and voila! The gorgeous papers are from Echo Park and the lovely little beach huts are from Flourish with a Bling. I have had the life buoy brad for so long and never been able to use it until now. I used Fluffy Stuff for the ocean waves.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
