Hot Days of Summer!

I spotted a challenge at  Mo's Clubhouse blog for "Hot Days of Summer" and I really wanted to play along.    My image is Jeffy in July and he is absolutely perfect for the card I needed to make.

I hand coloured Jeffy with Copics and Promarkers having dropped him into one of my own photographs of Siesta Key beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida.  I take pictures of cloudy skies whenever I have an opportunity and in fact I merged the sky (which was taken on a bridge in Florida) with my beach scene before adding Jeffy.   My papers are "Uncharted Waters" by Glitz, the sentiment is a Lily of the Valley stamp, the sun is a Papertrey Ink die and the flip flops are Dress it Up buttons. I used a Die-namics "6" too as the very special recipient of my card is about to have his 6th birthday.
In addition to entering at Mo's Clubhouse, I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Make my Monday - The Sea
The Ribbon Girl - Anything goes (with optional stars and stripes); and 
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes (with optional sketch)

Now I have to dash off and find a Christmas card and I'll be back tomorrow!!!

This is so cute Lesley. Those sweet little flip flops and the layered sun are great embellies. The merged photo looks amazing. A wonderful card all around. Thanks so much for joining our contest at Mo's Clubhouse!
