Lifes a Beach

Good morning folks.  Its a good job blogger has a scheduling facility because as this is being posted, hopefully, I shall be relaxing with my Mom and a friend at a Warners Leisure Hotel - Holme Lacy in Hereforshire.  In fact I shall probably be going down to a yummy breakfast at this moment in time and then going for a relaxing pedicure.  Not that I want to make anyone jealous of course!

Hubby has been left to cope on his own and our Briard Enya is looking after him. LOL

Knowing him he will be lapping up the free time although I have left him some jobs to do - hee hee.  Well that is a wife's privilege isn't it.  LOL

Today is the start of a Challenge 5 at Crafty Girlz and our theme for this month is LAZY DAYS.

Our sponsor is: -

prize is $15 voucher to spend in their shop.
I chose an image called 'Lifes a Beach'

What a super kit and so versatile for so many occasions.  For just $2.25 you get coloured images, sentiments and digi images in both Jpeg and PNG.  Brilliant value for money.

Because I also got coloured images I decided to create my design in Serif Craft Artist.

I wanted an 8x8 card so used the custom facility to make my own card template.  

I used different digi kits,one of which was a photo project called 'Beach' for the background. The topper is one of the PNG ones and I created the back ground shapes from one within the shapes directory and coloured it using the colour picker and colours from the background and the sand within the digi.  I imported the embellishments from serif too.

The back of the card has been decorated too with the same background as the front plus embellishments.

The inside of the card has another topper from the digi kit.

All the sentiments on the front of my card and the inside are also from the original digi kit from DeeDees Digis.  I told you it was super value.

One thing I really liked is the versatility of the kit.  My card could be for many occasions from birthday,  retirement, get well and even thinking of you.  Because the kit comes with coloured images and digi images for you to colour it is also a good kit for beginners in crafting because you have ready prepared toppers and sentiments but if you want to go on to colouring then you have the digi images and for practice you can use the coloured images to copy.

Well I hope you like my design and to see get more ideas from our design team follow the link HERE to the challenge page.  Do enter your own creation as it is lovely to see your projects and our sponsor has a super prize to be won.

Thank you for stopping by.  Take care and see you soon.
