Thank You

I took inspiration from the cute girl in the inspiration picture at PINspiration Challenge.  I also took inspiration from the colours - especially when it came to choosing colours for the girl's dress.

Come On In The Water's Fine

I'm back to aquatic themed cards!  With spending so much of my time with swimming, it is not surprising that is where I get my inspiration from.  I also have a reasonable number of aquatic themed paper pads in my stash!

Hello Friend

I'm having huge issues with my laptop this morning.  It updated overnight and won't work properly this morning.  I have been trying for well over an hour to get it going.  The mouse has jammed twice meaning I have had to restart the laptop.  Now things are only half working on it - at least cross fingers the mouse is working at the moment.

I need to get this post up so I'm hoping it will behave long enough for me to show the card I finished last night.

Rest Relax Enjoy

This sentiment is something I need to take heed of at the moment.  My Mum has just moved to be closer to my brother and myself as she wasn't managing on her own.  I've been running around doing things for her and trying to get her settled in - which isn't leaving me much time to rest and relax!  Maybe that is what I was thinking of when I created this card.  I certainly can't think of anything more relaxing than a day at the beach.

Flowers

I'm a bit down to the wire with this one - but at least I made it before the month finished!  Although I have just gone to upload it and discovered that I didn't actually use June's image like I intended to do!  That is kind of the story of my life at the moment!

CRAFT Challenge - Summer
http://trimmiescraftchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/06/challenge-473-21st-of-june-summer.html

I have used a card blank, paper, sentiment and gems from a card kit by Dovecraft.  Matting is blue cardstock.  I also added a blue corrugated paper strip.  The image is from Di's Digi Downloads and is coloured with copic markers.

With Thanks

I love the bright floral colours in the background paper and have tried my best to duplicate them in the image colouring.

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kate Knight.  The image is from Little Blue Button and is coloured with brightly coloured copic markers.  Matting is orange cardstock.  I added a digital sentiment from Pollycraft.

I have used two papers from a paper pad (not sure of the brand at the moment).  The image is from Scrap n Dippity and is coloured with copic markers and then fussy cut.  The sentiment is a digital sentiment.  I edged the torn edge of one of the papers with Distress Ink.
