Crafty Calendar Challenge July Challenge

Good morning all. 
I typed this on Thursday as we had to go away to London for a couple of days on Friday for a funeral and hope that helps make sense of my next sentence lol. I hope none of you have been affected by the awful rainfall that has been shown on the news this evening, my area is on an amber warning but no sign of the rain as yet!

Today brings us a new challenge at Crafty Calendar Challenge and this month our challenge is 'Fun in the sun' with the option of 'shimmer and shine' but I totally forgot the option! This month we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who gave us some fabby images to use but I unfortunately had a problem with my printer so couldn't use them.
For my card I decided to go for a boys way of having fun in the sun and who better to spend the time with than his best friend.

Wouldn't that just be the coolest thing to have a turtle that big to ride around on? Not so sure the turtle would feel the same, but it would make for some awesome pictures! Your wonderful card definitely depicts the characteristics of a imaginative boy and it's perfect for our Masculine theme.

Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday!
Remember you can enter up to 3 projects and 3 tips.
Have a great one!
