Unfortunately I have neglected my blogging quite a bit lately and also even didn't manage to make a card last week.... all because it's Summertime! Hubby is on leave and so we just spend the days relaxing at the beach, napping and going for walks on the promenade in the evenings.... and of course crafting just takes the back seat for the time! I really hate this last part, but you really can't do otherwise with the beach out there calling!
Well it's Wednesday today and so I have this card for the new challenge at
with the theme of
Prepare yourself as I have quite a few photos for this card as I made it also for a friend who wanted to give his girlfriend a surprise.. so I couldn't say no!
He wanted a Summer themed card so I used my gorgeous mermaid image from Sweet November, which of course I colored with my ProMarkers. The papers on the front and on the inside below were free from a magazine.. Here he wrote his stuff..
The card however is like it has two cards in one.. as now here comes his surprise and taking her to Ibiza for her birthday!!! Me was so happy that I found the perfect papers for what he wanted. These are now from my Me and My Big Ideas Paperpack and I also used another image, this time from Sassy Studio. I can tell you he was really pleased with it .. as much as me :P
Back to the challenge now...
We are this week sponsored by HobbyBook and the prize is five digi stamps of the winner's choice. Don't forget you must use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMArkers or Trias on your work to be eligible for the prize.
