Summer Holidays.

Good morning , yes me again....I am really getting into this blogging thing....don't worry I will never be as good as Barbara and blog everyday....

Today is a new Challenge over at Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers and the new theme is Summer Holidays...

This is what I came up with, I do hope that you like it.

I must thank all the lovely crafters that entered the challenge last month and congratulations to the winner who will get a hamper of the gorgeous flowers...and remember the winner is chosen at random...

I started my card by creating the sun.

Then I added the sky, I do love these Stencil brushes...

Next I added some sea..

Followed by some sand..

Then some Clarity stamps...

Some shading..then colouring with Distress Markers.

And this is what we have so far...

A selection of Sweet Lilac Flowers.

Some embellishments and the design is complete.....I did resist from putting a message in the bottle

Here is a closer look at the flowers...and yes I am really into these little bottles...

You can enter the challenge here... You can also see the wonderful projects from the rest of the D.T.

I am off now to spend the day with one day of the week....and I am going to enjoy every minute of it...have a good day what ever you are up to.

Hugs from me...
