Seaside Summer


Hello there!  I hope you are all well and have had a good week?  We had quite a busy weekend last week what with it being my Son’s 8th birthday, and it was one of his pal’s party too. We had to get my Daughter some bits-and-bobs for her school trip to London this coming week.  She will be visiting The Science Museum, Natural History Museum and be going to the theatre to watch ‘The Lion King’ – lucky thing! They will be staying overnight and it will be her first ever night away from home!!!!  She has never wanted to go on a residential trip with school before, but saying that they are usually for a week at a time.  She’s growing up fast!  Half-term has flown by and now it will be the last stretch until ‘The Big Summer Holidays’!  I really look forward to them being at home and this year I have managed to get all my annual leave booked during their holidays. I don’t think we’ll be going away this year but there will be plenty of day trips here and there to enjoy which leads me (rather smoothly I thought!) into introducing my card for this week 🙂  We have enjoyed some fantastic holidays in Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk as my Sister had up until this year, a caravan there –  just 10 minutes from a glorious beach. However, it wasn’t as gorgeous as the caravans in this new collection from Craftwork Cards called ‘Seaside Summer’! I had made my cards for my post this week but when I received my parcel of goodies yesterday I couldn’t wait to start playing so they will have to wait for another week!  I ordered the 8×8 paper pad which is gorgeous! Images include  beautiful caravans, scooters, camper vans, and sunglasses all in pretty ‘ice-cream’ colours.  I ordered 2 packs of the die-cuts (cos I’m greedy like that!) which contain 4 sheets (each pack) in 4 different colourways of all the icons which are in the paperpad.  Also included on these sheets are some lovely sentiments in great fonts. Also got the Card Candi that matches this fab collection – a great embellishment when you just need that ‘something’ extra on a project.  I do love Craftwork Cards products – I’ve bought quite a lot recently from them to the point where I had to get some more storage just to put ‘their’ products in. To say that I have hardly any room left in my bedroom/husbands office/ craft room would be the biggest understatement – ever! Anyways, getting back to this card (!) everything that I have used – apart from the Dew Drops in the centre of the flowers, is from Craftwork Cards. I’m sure I will be making lots of projects with this kit, I think a mini scrapbook would be nice to pop all our photo’s in of what we get up to in the Summer hols. I know when I got their ‘Love a Cuppa’ collection I couldn’t leave it alone! That is another pretty pastel collection. I popped some foam pads on the back of the white frame here for dimension – popping some of the cute paper behind it and I also shaped the caravan a bit so it looked more rounded! And there you have it – my card for this week!  Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week ahead.  Take care – Karen 🙂

I used: Spotty 6×6 card, Chevron Polaroid Frame and items from the Seaside Summer Collection all from Craftwork Cards. Papermania Dew Drops, WRMK Corner Chomper and Sue Wilson’s Finishing Touches Camellia dies.
