We have a new challenge today over at Crafty Cardmakers. It was my turn to set the theme and I have chosen a Summer Holiday Memories theme.
After a month off the DT have recharged their batteries and are raring to go with some fab new challenges for you.
The lovely Joanna Sheen is sponsoring this challenge
Now I have to be honest I haven’t been away anywhere for a summer holiday this year but for me it has to be a visit to the beach. If I go abroad the 1st thing I have to check is how close the hotel is to the beach as the sea is a major part of it for me. My Grandfather and Great Grandfather were both in the Navy and it has always drawn me to it in a way I cannot explain. I love to listen to the sea crashing onto the rocks and love nothing better than looking for special pebbles and paddling in the sea if it’s not too cold. Paula and I went to Snowdonia earlier in the year and quite by accident found this almost deserted beach. The weather was fabulous and we had the most amazing time there. The pebbles were amazing and I could have stayed there all day
My card has been made using a Kraft base. The beach wordart is from TLC Creations and the bucket and spade is a digi from Happileigh Scrappin’ coloured with Promarkers and cut using a Nestability die. Both digis have been matted onto cardstock scraps from my snippet pile.
The ribbon is from a set of DCWV drawers I had from QVC which has alload of holiday things in.The cardstock sticker sentiment cam from there too and last but not least I used a couple of plastic beach themed beads to finish off the image.
I’m looking for ward to sharing your Summer holiday Memories too.
