Passion For Promarkers - at the beach

It was my turn to choose the theme at Passion For Promarkers this week, and for some reason I went for 'at the beach'... I was probably thinking about fish 'n' chips at the seaside lol!  We're sponsored by Letraset who have a new promarker collection set for our very lucky winner :o)




I've used a fab new image from DigiStamp Boutique - this is Alf Cooling Off and I love him!  I had so much fun colouring him, and then I couldn't resist popping that cloud over his head ;o)  The papers are Papermania 'Happy Days' - lots of gorgeous tiny prints that are perfect for cards.  The sentiment is LOTV, stamped on a cloud cut with a Memory Box die, the little banner thing is from the MFT dienamics 'mini wavy pennants' set, with a little button from my stash.  The fab striped ribbon and matching cardstock are my new favourites from Stampin' Up, in 'soft suede'... it might actually overtake 'crumb cake' as my most favourite cardstock colour I think.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Another busy day for me... working on some card orders, washing the clothes mountain, and then hubby suggested we do the park and Pizza Hut when he finishes work later - we're not going to turn that down lol, so I'd better get on with everything!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
