Sunny Days xx

Well I'm back today with a card that I actually coloured with my polychromos  yesterday but never got round to finishing it as I had another one of those days and ended up having an afternoon nap to try to ease the old headache!!!

Anyway what do you think to my colouring I'm quite surprised to say it was my first attempt but I don't think the camera has done the images any justice they look so much better in the flesh.

On the my images I decided to go with the surf look for a hot sunny day on your summer holidays which I don't think we will be seeing this year.
I have used some natural hessian behind the images and I have also used a strand to thread these yummy beads where I have also dangled a beautiful starfish.  For the top to cover the large dollop of glue out came the hessian again and I used two threads to make the bow and to tie it together finally a blue button. 

Tilda with her surfboard looking slightly flushed from the sun or have I overdone the rouge!!!! lol  Added stickle's and glossy accents.
The whole card where you can see the lovely distressed seaside papers which are just perfect for this scene.  Added a pile of shells to the bottom a lovely gift from Anne over at Midweek Magnolia (she sent me some lovely stamped images to play with).
Edwin with his surf board and lots of stickles.
Finally a side view of the card.

Challenges I am entering:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers  -  Distress -  used distress inks around all papers and image
Dutch Magnolia Chickies - Holidays
Magnolia Down Under - Bingo (Charm/Edwin/Sentiment)

Well that's my challenges just need to link them up! So then on to catching up with my comments!!  Its all go go go as my granddaughter says!! lol

Will be back tomorrow as Rochelle needed me to sit at her house today while the lock was mended on her front door so I took my Pro's with me, don't know what the man who was doing the job must have thought!!! lol

Thanks to everyone has left me lovely comment on my last post and to my new followers I hope you are enjoying my work.

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxxxx
