Fun in the sun

Hi peeps, well what do you think of the new Blogger? takes a bit of getting used too but managed to post already so should be ok,!!! lol
this is my second post today, scroll down if you want to see my cards for The Stamp Basket GDT
I've made a card just for for fun, it was too late for some challenges as I've had one of those weeks this week and even now just had to take the dog to the vet as she appears to have hurt her back, just what we need and her too!

Saw these stamps on my blog rounds, at first I thought I'd not use them but when I saw them I loved them lol, they are of course by Magnolia and are from the latest stamp club so don't know their names yet,
they are coloured with my distress re-inkers though i don't know what's happened to Tildas face! a bit too much sun I think lol,
See what I mean!

Now Edwin's  used his sun cream, isn't he clever he he, don't know it's wise holding a star fish though! don't they sting! or is it me that's got it wrong!

Midweek Magnolia's ~ use two images
Timbroscrapmania ~ Anything goes
Bunny Zoes ~ ribbon or twine? I've used both
Simon Says Stamp ~ fabby sketch

Just found out it's hard to view your blog when linking, anybody sorted that out yet? any help appreciated! thanks!!

I'll look for more later as Tilly needs a bit of TLC,
catch you soon, 
Happy Crafting

Oh I was the opposite to you Liz, as soon as I saw this lot I couldn't wait to get my hands on them - I just adore anything seaside-y and nautical! Your card is just the most beautiful! Those colours are my absolute favourites and the way you have brought the little guys to life is just beautiful! I love it! I'll say this though, I haven't raved about the cloud until I saw how you used it - Oh my, now I want it!! Thanks for sharing with us again at Midweek Magnolias Liz! :o) xx

Hi Gorgeous ! Love Edwin with his starfish !! The stamp monster said some sting and some don't so Edwin probably knows that this one doesn't lol !! I love the blue ribbon in the background and the bunting is gorgeous ! I love Tilda with rosey cheeks ! She has gone for the darker blusher this time ;0)

Becky said...

Liz, absolutely gorgeous creation hun
I played around in rock pools for hours as a kid, and occasionally found a starfish, but never got stung. They do have another use though that my dad told me, but I'm not saying on here

SarahS said...

Hi Liz, all your cards are fab, love the colouring and extra bits. I think Tilda has spied something she shouldn't have through those binoculors and that is why she is blushing!
Hope you are well - keep showing your cards - such inspiration.
Hugs SarahS
