Seaside Anchor

Good morning all!
How time flies, it's Thursday already!
Time for this weeks Just Inklined card !

I've made a Beachy type card! The image I have used is
a perfect image for a male or perhaps just a beach lover.
So many occasions spring to mind.....
I used a Kraft base with a strip of corrugated card in the same colour.
Some gauze, raffia, fish charms, an anchor charm & a little shell.

I coloured my image with promarkers. The sand was done with a distress
marker. I have only one, in Vintage Linen, but it worked perfectly for the sand!
The sky was Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I popped up the image on some foam tape.

The usual side view to finish!
Hope you like it! Thanks for hopping by!

Christmas In July

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at
Crafting For All Seasons, where the theme this time is

I've used one of the images kindly supplied by our sponsor
They're just so sweet are they not!

I coloured them up using my Sakura Pens, which always make an
appearance for my Christmas Cards! lol
The papers I've used are from Papermania, it was a pack which
came free with a magazine last year if I remember rightly!
I love the colours! I added a sentiment which was left over from 
another project a little gingham ribbon bow.
Hey presto, done in next to no time!
I hope you like it & I hope you can play in the challenge!

Vintage Christmas

Good morning everyone & a very Happy Monday to you all!
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at
Ooh La La Creations, where the theme this time is
Here's my card!

I love vintage Christmas cards, so I had a go at this!
The image & papers are from the Passion for Fashion CD rom,
available in the Ooh La La Creations shop here
I did add one other paper, the musical one, which is from
Papermania. I punched a  border on that one using a Tonic, 
Fleur De Lys punch. I did a bit of inking with Vintage Lace distress ink too.
The design of my card is based on this sketch 

I added a ribbon frame to the topper. 
The ribbon & lace are from my stash as is the button,

I haven't done anything to the inside of this card yet, I was
aware of the sky darkening & didn't want to miss the best of the light.
Hope you like it!
