Pretty parasols !


Good morning, thanks for stopping by today x

Well summer sneaked back this weekend and wow it is HOT !! Now I am not complaining {I love it !} but it is always a bit of a shock here in the UK when we get a hot spell !

Anyway the weather inspired me to use this gorgeous digi stamp by Wax fruit company - ah I wish I was on that beach !

CAS was def' the dish of the day, as I spent most of the day playing with the kids outside so I didn't get much time to play with my crafty stash, but this image is so gorgeous that it really needs little else !

I found this gorgeous stripey paper at Two pea's in a bucket. It's a freebie, which is a bonus, and I thought it was just perfect for those parasols.

I coloured the rest of the image with a mixture of copic's and promarkers and added some stickles to the waves breaking on the beach.

Voila - simple but effective I think x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Less is more - Sketch
Sparkles forum challenge - At the beach
4 crafty chicks - Clean & simple
Dutch dare card challenge - Clean & Simple
Moving along with the times - Clean & simple

Thanks again for visiting today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
