Play Days

Over at Sugar Creek Hollow we are, ' Dreaming of the Beach', for our new Challenge.
We  are also  welcoming a Guest Designer this week  Marie,  please pop over  for all the details and see what we all made.

 I live in the UK  and this scene is a bit of a trip down memory lane ,  as we are still  in our winter season.  But I'm sure some folk somewhere in the world will be having a a bit of warmth and sunshine.
This little guy is a stamp from Joanna Sheen.  Bucket and spade at the ready and he's off to  to splash about in the sea,. The trimmings all came from my stash  box,  things that I hoard and cannot throw away.
The image is water coloured .
 I edged this oval die cut  and play ticket  with Frantage embossing powder,  Aged aqua and Aged Marine. The base card is a Kraft card, and the layers, ribbon, lace and metal charm boat,  all came from the box that never seems to have any space for more.
Other challenges-
Inkspirational challenge 50- Designers challenge is a Tic, Tac, Toe.
my line is Embossing heat/dry ,  ribbon /lace,  metal charm.

Its lovely to have you stop by, I do so appreciate the comments you leave.
