Winter meets Summer...


Hello there!

Hope you are having a nice weekend..Hubby and I are having a super lazy one and I am attempting to the bulk of my UK bound Christmas cards done (as JT is kindly taking them back with her after Thanksgiving to save postage costs)

In amongst this Christmas frenzy I found time to make a couple of challenge entries..the main photo today is for Color Throwdown #268..when I saw the colours I knew that I had to use the free Beach Girl stamp I have.


Her stripy dress works well with the colours, I used Cerise, Fresh Meadow, Duck Egg and Ginger promarkers for the dress, her glasses and her hair. I stenciled the background using a Crafters Workshop stencil in contrasting Ranger Distress inks. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts and I think the colour is a bit of a mix of the rust, rose and melon!

I really wanted to make a summery card, as the weather is so blah, it's making me think about the beach and being warm!

I feel like this card should go to my friend Liz in New Zealand..I owe her a long letter, so this will be a good way to say hi!

Back to Christmas cards for me. enjoy the rest of your weekend.
