Make-a-Card Monday: Happy Summer!

So my BFFs don't live in our area and, while we've been out a week, their kids' last day of school was Friday. So today is their first official day of summer!! Yea for SUMMER!! I had to make a girl and boy version. :) 

This image is Swimmy Sally by The Doodle Garden and she's been colored up with Copics. The paper is Down by the Shore by Fancy Pants Designs and the card base is Neenah Desert Storm. The embroidery thread is Martha Stewart. The charm is from the 'Sea' collection my Zibbet Shop.

The sentiment is from one of my favorite sets Stampendous's Happy Everything. I inked it up in Versafine Black Onyx. The middle 'happy' is thicker than the other two, it's made that way. :)

Thank's for looking! I hope this finds happy and healthy.
