We’re all going on a Summer Holiday

Actually I’m already on mine!Due to the magic of technology my card is here and I’m sunning myself on a beach in Devon – or maybe I’m running like crazy looking for shelter from the rain.You never can tell!

This week  the challenge at Pear Tree Designs is in the form of a sketch.Here it is :

For more details on how to enter please click on the link above.There is a prize to be won as well as some fantastic DT inspiration!!

I suppose holiday thoughts influenced my card.The image is Sandbucket Trevor by C C Designs and he’s been coloured with Promarkers.The patterned papers are free printables from Cardmaking and Papercraft.I’ve used semi gloss photo paper for a better quality finish and to give a seaside postcard feel.The card is Core’dinations So Mod.The centre pieces have been cut with Inverted Scallop Nestabilities.The border has been punched with a Martha Stewart Zig Zag Edger.The sentiment has been stamped using part of a free seashell stamp that came with Craft Stamper magazine’s July issue.I’ve added acrylic dew drops for a water drop effect.I didn’t buy the expensive ones aimed at crafter.Instead I got the type readily available on eBay that are listed as Wedding table decorations.A much cheaper option and they come in a variety of colours. 

Here are a few challenges :

Kah-Wink-E-Dink : Anything goes as long as it’s cool
