Crafty Cardmakers 52 – Summer Holiday Memories

Woohoo we’re back. After a much needed break, we are back with our memories of the Summer, a theme chosen by Mandy. We would love to share your interpretation of your own holiday memories with us.

We are sponsored by image to the tune of £10, so get creating ladies.

Sadly we have lost a few of our team over the holidays due to work and other commitments, Gill, Cazro and Jacki and we wish them well for the future.

I am taking over the running of the blog for a while to give our lovely Vix a much needed break from that and I shall shortly be announcing a Design Team call on the blog, and would love to be able to welcome some lovely new folks to our team. So if this interests you keep your eyes peeled please.

Right enough of the business end of things, onto my card.

CCM #52 WM

For my image I have combined three Magnolia stamps to create a beach Scene, Edwin and Tilda surfing and the beach backgound. I have coloured it with promarkers and the beach was paper pieced on from a beach background paper. The shells are from my stash as are the fabulous and real little starfish. I made the hat pins from some pearl headed pins and beads, using an earring back to hold it all in place on the pin. The sentiment has been printed onto safmat.

I hope my card reminds you of your holidays too, and don’t forget to join in the fun with your own holiday memories.
