Mid-Way Already (almost)

Good morning! Sorry I have been a bit quiet lately.  I am trying to get all my DT work done as my family are coming up next week and in two weeks I am going on holiday.  Tomorrow is mid-way so I am going to post my mid-way card today for A Little Bit Crafty Challenge as I will be posting tomorrow for Digital Delights.  Our theme this month is Summer Sun! Here is my card:


I have used Summer Holidays from The Paper Shelter.  She has been coloured with Copics. The papers are Echo Beach Paradise Beach.  I have used DI Broken China and Antique Linen around the edges of the image.  I used SB Grand Circles and Grand Scalloped Circles to cut the image out. The flip flops are a Joy Crafts die and I used a woodware punch for the flowers on top!  The beach wording I got in the clearance bin at the craft shop and the shells are from the beach.  We have some fabulous sponsor's this week:

$20 voucher
£10 Voucher
$15 Voucher

You have just over two weeks to enter to be in with a chance to win one of these fabulous prizes! Remember we are a crafty challege so it doesn't just have to be cards!

I have to dash I am off on the train to meet my friend for some shopping and lunch in Manchester!  Thanks for looking - see you tomorrow! Take care, Susan xx

This is one of my favourite paper shelter images - she's so cute - though I never realised she had two right feet!! - she must have bought those flip flops in a sale lol. Looks like we're both off on holiday at the same time again - though my DT work is seriously lacking at the minute - and I go next Friday and I've got my grandson to look after all the rest of next week - yikes think it'll be some late night crafting for me - enjoy your hollies hugs Judith xx
