Citrus Splashin' Summer!!

Are you feeling HOT HOT HOT where you live?
In the Midwestern United States, we are certainly feelin' the heat with record temperatures!
So I thought I might interest you Belles n' Whistles fans with a fun little creation today to soothe some of those sweltering heat waves!
They are having a fun time cooling off in the pool underneath that bright sun! :)
I've used the darling Splashing Good Times stamp and took out the sun stamp from the Dessert, Mr. Sun and Fishbowl stamp set of the Changeables Collection to make a fun Summer Splash Scene.
I've colored the image in with my Copics markers and added some chalk for the grass and sky areas.  Of course I topped it all off with lots of sparkle and shine!  As you can see, my main theme here are the Summer colors with sort of a "citrus" feel.  So if you are feeling a bit hot, why not stay inside and get your Belles n' Whistles stamps out to play!  There is always a really fun challenge going on that started Monday over at the Belles n' Whistles Challenge Blog...hope you stop by to check it out and play along!!

I've entered this card in a couple of fun challenges going on:
*Belles n' Whistles - lace or ribbon or BOTH!  (I've got both across the center of my card!)
Paper Play - Summer Citrus Splash
DYSU? - orange
Sweet Stampin' - Playing in the Summer Sun
