This week sees the start of an extremely punishing and work schedule which will last throughout the summer. I will be working some very long days and staying away from home for a lot of the time. The last few weeks have all been in preparation for this moment. Consequently, I will have a lot less time than normal for craftiness and I will be making fewer blog posts than usual. Without wanting to wish my life away, I can’t wait until September when the madness will, hopefully, be over and I can look forward to a late summer holiday! In anticipation, here is a little project that is one of my DT pieces for the new Crafty Boots challenge “summer holidays.”
This card uses an image from the Gecko Galz Splish Splash ephemera collection. It reminds me of one of my Godmothers who used to swim in the sea at Brighton every day come rain or shine and did so well into her seventies!
I’ve layered the image on to red and black card and then set it at an angle on some spotty paper. I’ve added lace and pom pom trim across the bottom and then made a little rosette from some spotty fabric, topping it off with a button and some baker’s twine.
Be sure to buzz over and see what the rest of the Crafty Boots Design Team have been up to. Dionne has made the most gorgeous little beach hut scene. I will be back here on Wednesday with a beach hut project of my own – you can take a sneaky peek over on the Craft Boots Challenge Blog. Hope you will have time to link up your projects too.
Thanks for buzzing by.
