Oh So Tropical

Good morning everyone. Well I am back home safe and sound and my weekend with my grandson Harrison was such good fun!  He was so good for me and we had great fun playing together.

Luckily I made a card before I went away to post today or I would not have one.  Actually its a card I made for Melissa my DIL as it was her birthday yesterday.


The digi image is Oh So Tropical by Paper Pretties and he has been coloured with my Copics.  I have added some Glossy Accents to his nose, lemon rinds and glasses. The papers are by Nitwits called Life's Little Lemons.   I have cut and matted the image and also the papers behind with Spellbinders Nesties.  The lemon slices are part of the embellishments you get with the Nitwits Collection and the ribbon and button are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen - Summer Daze
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
Pan Pastel - Use a Digi
Quirky Crafts - Make us Laugh
Di's Digi Designs - Summertime
Chocolate Coffee and Cards - Anything Goes
Totallly Papercrafts - Use a Digi
Die Cuttin' Divas - Fruit or Vegetables

Well that is it from me for today I will be catching up with you all today.  Lots of dreaded housework and food shopping to do as well today and hopefully some play time as I have no cards!!  Enjoy your day, I will be back tomorrow and thanks so much for taking the time to look - take care xx
