A day by the sea

Yesterday evening I seemed to be on a roll. Two cards made in just an hour using the sketch from CMLI as the inspiration. This one followed it most closely, the other didn't quite have all the elements, but hey, I was only aiming for one in the first place so that's still a result in my book.

The chipboard arrived yesterday morning, this month's freebie in Cardmaking and Papercraft. I just adore the cuddly love between the little boy and doggie. The blue/teal paper is from Papermania's Song Bird range and the yellow is Crate Paper's Sunshine from the Brooke collection according to what it says on the side of the page!

I love the versatility of it and it's made me start thinking about holiday. That's never a bad thing.

I'll also enter this into:
