Fun in the Sun With Prairie Fairy Designs Gilly!!

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start?! My 9 year old has Summer school this year and this is his second both him and I are trying to get back into the early morning But other than that I'm motivated and ready to get my week started! I've got lots of new stuff coming up that I'm hoping to be ready and done by the end of the month including lots of NEW items I'll be adding to my Etsy shop and my new digi sentiment shop (opening soon)!! So be sure to keep an eye out for that!

Now onto what I have to share with you today! Since it's summer, I've been in the mood to create summery cards so I just had to play with Roberta's "Gillian at the Beach" image which can be found in the Prairie Fairy Designs shop HERE! Plus I made some brand new summery themed ticket sentiments that I wanted to try out!

Isn't she just the cutest in her beach attire?!!

Some closeups...

I would like to add that I made this card just in time too because Roberta is having an amazing Summer Sale which includes this "Super Summer Fun Pack"!! Plus she just released a bunch of fun new images to drool over...they are the cutest ever!!
