CCM 95 Holiday

Our challenge to you at Crafty Cardmakers for the next two weeks is Holiday. It is hosted by Josephine and she would like to see projects that depict or are inspired by a holiday. Any holiday themed creation will qualify, but you might want to really inspire us, like a few of the team have and create something to depict a holiday you would like to have, but have not gotten around to yet.

We are sponsored by Sir Stampalot with a fabulous prize of stamps and matching embossing folder. See the Crafty Cardmakers blog for more details.

CCM 94 Holidays 2d

My ideal holiday would be relaxing by the sea. I love the sound the waves make when they crash against the shore, and the sound of the seagulls. It brings back memories of childhood. I would love to try surfing, so I created a card along those lines. Oh yes, and I would love to look like Gloria in the image too!!!!!

So the image is called Gloria and is from Mo Manning. I coloured her with copics. the background paper was from a magazine freebie, and the surf board was cut from another of the sheets in the pack. the little sunglasses in Gloria’s hair and the flip flops are from Prima. The waves is a die from Memory Box.

I am entering this into the following:-
