Summer is Here!!!


Wow, the weather is lovely, so warm, fab, but I'm still lilly white! maybe it's because I stay inside and craft, but there are always so many lovely stamps and paper to play with.

Anyway, my latest card is a really unusual one for me, IT DOESN'T USE ANY STAMPS!!! I made a card using the freebie paper on the Get Funky Challenge blog, and having made the card I looked at the rest of the paper and it reminded me of the beach huts you see at some seaside resorts, an idea came to me and I just had to run with it. The roof is made with some brown wrapping paper, the clouds are just printer paper - the beach paper was from a Joanna Sheen CD (Jayne Netley Mayhew first CD). The words were created with my Moxie Alphabet for the Quickutz - I had so much fun making this, I even put silver linings on my clouds! and a few little seagulls in the sky.

As I can only enter one card for the challenge, I would like to enter this instead as I really love it and it's such a complete departure from my normal cards. Hope you like....
