Beach Huts

Hello fellow bloggers,

Have you all been enjoying the Olympic Games? My favourite part is the equestrian events, having been involved in showjumping and dressage in my younger days. However, TV coverage of equestrian events is very sparse here in Australia.

I normally hate the terrible heat of summer, but with all the very cold weather we have been having here, I thought I would show you 2 summery CAS cards. They are both using stamps I have had for many years.

This card I made for a friend, who owns a little holiday hut on the edge of a lake. The hut image is a Print Block stamp, and the seagulls are a tiny stamp by Stamp-it. The images are coloured with Promarkers, and I used Spellbinder dies to cut the squares and rectangles. I bought several sheets of the greetings stickers, and have usually coloured them with Promarkers to co-ordinate with the image, but this time, I have left the greeting white.
A super quick and easy card for a friend's daughter to give to her Dad on Father's Day. The striped paper has been in my off-cuts box for 'donkey's years'. The tiny umbrella brad was in a bargain box of un-named embellishments at a craft fair many years ago. I only bought 1 bag of 5 umbrellas, but so wish I had bought several bags.

I would like to enter the following challenges with these cards - 
      Passion for Promarkers - 'At the Beach'
      Party Time Tuesday - 'By the Sea'
      Ladybug Crafts - 'Summer Fun'
      Creative Card Crew - 'On the Beach/Under the Sun'
      Crafty Sentiments - 'Clean & Simple'
      Anything Goes - 'Summer Day'
      Just Some Lines - 'Beach, Sand, and/or Surf'
      Little Claire's - 'Summer/Holidays'
      Crafts 4 Eternity - 'Summer Sun'

Until next time, thanks for looking.
