SUMMER - Where Are You?

Some very cheerful sole at the supermarket tonight informed me that the weather is not getting better until the end of August. END OF AUGUST! So bangs goes our lovely summer evening walks and a bag of chips down at the beach. I'm sure each year the summer is getting worse. Having said all that there are plenty of challenges this week with the 'Summer' theme so here is my card:
I think this image is from Pollycrafts which I have coloured with Promarkers. My colouring is still very amateur but to be honest I've not had much time to watch any tutorials but I do really need to sort out the shading, skin tones and hair shades. I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
The StampMan Challenges - Anything Goes/Summer
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Photo Inspiration
Digi Doodles - Summertime
The Crafty Pad - At The Seaside
DYSU - Cool Colours
Fab 'n' Funky - Summer
Delicious Doodles Challenge - Summer Holidays
Bye for now

I was a bit hopeful when I chose the theme 'At The Seaside', never mind at least all the lovely summer cards have cheered me up a little.
I love your surfer and the way you have created the sand.
Thank you for joining us a The Crafty Pad this week.
