Whimsical Designs "Summer Time Fun" Challenge

Ok, we are kickin' into summer over at Whimsical Designs this week with our "Summer Time Fun" challenge!!

I don't know about the rest of you, but we have definitely hit summer here. Most of last week was in the 90's or 100's. And... it is only the first part of June, EEEK!

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Fresh Brewed Designs, with the prize  of 3 digi's of your choice.

For my project I made a cupcake box with a Silhouette Studio cut file. I covered it with some fun "Fishy" paper by Fancy Pants. 
I used the image "Bob" from Fresh Brewed Designs on my tag. I printed him on Copic blending paper,  colored him with my Copics and fussy cut him out. I used double sided, removable tape to attach my tag (after removing the string) to a piece of paper and ran it through the printer. Used my Copics, again ,to color the water. I ran my piece of paper through the printer 2 more times, once with my patterned paper so I could fussy cut his bathing shorts and again with card stock for his visor and waist of the suit.
Attached everything together on the tag, applied a little Glossy Accents to his sun glasses, put my string back on and stamped a sentiment from Stephanie's Everyday Sentiments which you can purchase here.

Off to Starbucks to pick up a muffin and a frap. My little apology gift is finished! And.. No, I didn't really use it, hehe!!! Ate the muffin and drank the frap myself :)

Supplies used: card stock - orange; patterned paper - Fish Farm in Beach Babe by Fancy Pants; Copic blending paper; tag - Staples; image - Fresh brewed Designs; Copic markers; Glossy Accents; stamp - Whimsical Designs "Everyday Sentiments"; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; muffin and frap - Starbucks.
