Morning my lovelies - it's Thursday again... so time for a new Challenge over at
This week it's the lovely Leesa who is hostess for her very first Challenge and she has chosen the fab theme of ....
So we want to see your creations with anything to do with the Boats, Sailors, Pirates, Mermaids etc. I felt really off when I made this - just hope it doesn't show in the card!! it's quite a simple design. I've used a Stitchy Bear Stamp called 'In The Harbour'.
I've tried something a bit different and used some Watercolours that a blogging friend bought me for my Birthday - Thank You so much hun!!! The sky is done digitally - not sure why I chickened out of painting the sky but felt I needed to give myself a head start!! LOL it's not perfect but I'm quite pleased with it. I haven't done any Watercolour painting for about 20 years!! I have to say it was very relaxing - so might have another go very soon!
The gorgeous papers were a freebie from Design House Digital and called For The Boys by Karen Funk. They are lovely papers. The background one is quite velvety but it doesn't show up too well in photo. Sentiment was made on computer. The shells were from Sir Stampalot but not sure if they are still available as I think they were in an end of stock sale. I noticed they have some gorgeous charms in store though. Talking of which....
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Sir Stampalot!!!
and just look at the fab prize that they have given us for this week's winner!! Ooh I wish I could enter!!!
I hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of our Challenge and to check out my Teamies wonderful creations - lots of fab inspiration!! ;-))
I have been to dentist today (Wednesday) for a filling. Boy am I shattered!!! I had panic attack while I was there and well... have you ever tried to control your breathing while the dentist is holding down your tongue and drilling - and the suction woman is ramming her thingy ma-jig up into the roof of your mouth - Yikes. All I can say is that next time I will be taking a sedative before I go.... My dentist is brilliant though, very calm which I like. I don't know what he injected me with this time but my face was dead on one side for about 3 hours!! I looked like Quasimodo!!!
