Summer Days at Passion for Promarkers

Yayyy, it's my turn to choose the weekly theme at Passion for Promarkers and I've chosen Summer Days.  As well as the images from Mo's Digital Pencil (which I'll link to shortly) I just couldn't wait to use this brand spanking new die set from Marianne.  It makes this box die card and comes with loads of embellishing dies for the branches such as cherries ,apples and chinese lanterns. Such fun to use too - it's part of their July release - CR1374. 
The image that I used for the farm building comes from Mo's Digital Pencil and is from the Farm Background stamp.  I think it just added a bit of depth to the little scene,

The main image on the front of the box is called Wheelbarrow - I love this image and seems to be me at the moment harvesting fruit, lettuce, rocket and kale.  I've had a bumper crop of raspberries so far this year and have already used 2kg of them to make a batch of jam and I picked another load yesterday
The strawberries aren't as good as last year's crop, I think it's been too wet for them but still plenty for eating!

The lamb is also from Marianne Designs - he looks just like the one who found his way into my herb garden on Sunday morning - he loved my mint plants!  Luckily the farmer came and rescued him as he was nearly Sunday lunch!!

Here's a full list of the Marianne Dies I used:

Box Die Set - CR1374
Lamb - LR0358
Grasses - CR1355
Tiny's Tree - Oak tree die set - CR1338

The box die set was so straightforward to use that I can see me using it the whole time!
My lovely teamies over at PFP have done me proud with their makes for this week's challenge so do check them out here. Then please come along and join in our challenge - we're being sponsored by  Digistamp Boutique this week, and there's a fab £10 voucher up for grabs!
That's all for now folks, happy Tuesday!!
Hugs, Juliexx

Love the Summer scene you've created with all those pretty die cuts and stamp - now all we need is for Mother Nature to play fair and we could recreate it!
Would love to extend my fruit and veg growing, so I am very jealous of your raspberry jam! You missed a trick with the lamb, you should have told the farmer you wanted commission for pre flavouring him with mint!! Hope the sun finds it's way out for you - I notice the Lakes are about as wet as Wales, as usual! Hugs, Lisa x
