At the beach

Hello everyone!!!  It's been a really really busy day.  The kids are away at my dad... so we are all alone my hubby and I.  This is really great.  So yesterday after I had been complaining for the past 3 weeks about my computer, my hubby purchased a new laptop for me!!!  YAY!!!! Then we went for supper and to see a movie "Wolverine" it was great fun.

So today was spent configuring my new laptop and also creating... I haven't had any time to create this week...  And I had a bunch of DT work to do... as well as a lot of progressive challenges that I follow.  And this week there was a great freebie over at Crafty Sentiment called At the beach.  I just had to ask for her... and now I have barely the time to enter in the challenge... why do I do this to myself lol

The paper is from Beach Bum by Fancy pants.  I thought it was just perfect for this.  I used my large and small rectangles from Spellbinder.  I added some Candi in silver.  The beach ball is a die cut that I had purchased last summer in liquidation, there's lot in the little bag... so still have lots to use.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics and some chalk for the water as well as the sky.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.
To make this card I followed this great sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Some odd girl blog - Sketch
  2. Crafty sentiments - Summer holiday (with the freebie)
  3. Dreamvalley challenges - Summer days
  4. Opus-gluei - Don't be such a beach
And that's it for me for today!!!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Mine past way to fast.  But at least now I'll be able to blog like normal again... I still have to download some stuff but I'm getting there lol
