Challenge B was to make a card with some summer toys on it. I went straight for my kites (I actually haven't played with one of these properly since I was a kid, but we made some in school a while ago for our own Indian Kite festival and the kids loved it. Was such fun running around on a very windy day trying to fly a kite!). I combined it with A Passion for Papertrey's Circles Challenge and my fave new combo of the summer - turquoise, yellow and grey. Keep seeing combo this around a lot and I love the brightness of it.

Challenge C was to use splashes of ink with a summer theme, so I used my markers and my spritzer to make a rainbow of colours. We get lots of rainbows in the summer here in the UK, only because we get so much darn rain during the so-called summer LOL
