I was the very lucky winner of the Crafting Musketeers April challenge and as well as winning a fabulous prize from their sponsor JGD Crafts I was delighted to be asked to join them as a GDT for the June challenge. The theme of this challenge is Shades of Summer - which looking out of the window this morning I can only dream of.
I've used a decoupage image from my Joanna Sheen 'Faye Whittaker' cd which brings to mind my childhood summers. Living in the landlocked Midlands I remember the excitement of travelling to the seaside and the squeals of delight at the first glimpse of the sea and even if it rained it didn't dampen our spirits. I know that pennies were in short supply when I was little so the fact that my Mom and Dad made these holidays possible for me and my sisters only added to the magic. I still live in the Midlands and must admit I still get a big smile on my face when I see the sea but I no longer have a bucket and spade or a beach ball with me!
Anyway, back to my card - the papers are LOTV and Prima Doodle Deux and I used blue and white card for matting and added ribbon and card candi to finish.
So why not hop over to Crafting Musketeers for more details of the challenge and the chance to win a prize from this months sponsor The Hobby House.
