Wow where is the time going. Hi to all my followers old and new I hope you have all entered for a chance to win my Birthday Candy. A huge thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday I had a lovely day and was spoilt rotten.
This week has once again been hectic what with running kids classes and adults classes this week in the shop so I am really pleased I have finally finished my DT card for this weeks challenge over at ABC. The theme for this challenge is A is for August so we want to see anything that makes you think of summer be it the beach, ice creams, holidays its up to you. For this challenge we are sponsored by the fantastic Simon Says and they are offering a $25 voucher to the lucky winner.
I opted for the fabulous Kraftin Kimmie beach collection and decided to create a beach scene using a sidestep card. I made my little beach hut/changing tent using Doodlebug paper from the Blue Jean collection. I then used cloudy dp from MME and a mix of Bazzil to construct the basis of my card. As always I used ProMarkers to colour my images but then used paper piecing to add clothing and accessories. All distressed with Walnut Stain and all is done!
