Father's day

Good day

A bit of Father's day project for a change. My image I got from an online colouring book - kidsplaycolor. I actually got the sentiment first from my inspirational station book and then I needed a boat. Although it is a pirate ship it had the elements in my sentiment. The handmade paper is from my stash. The big splash border is from memory box. The sentiment - A father is neither anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way

Challenges I'm joining:
The male room #12 - Add a tag

Thank you and have a fantastic day.

Bonjou....Hallo in Hawaii

A bit of contrast from where I stay within winter season, but I just could not resist in playing with this summer fun digi from Lacy Sunshine, called Eleanor & pickles hula digi. Once again I played with stuff from my stash. I used some crab eyelets from Fiskar, the foam letters are from my scrapbook kit stash and the slops are buttons from Dress it up. I did some wet embossing with Ranger distress powder for the sand. The die is flower shape from simply-2-die-4 and the punched piece in the center is from Martha Stewart.

Challenges I was inspired by are:
Lacy Sunshine #60 - Wild about you (entry #2)
Creative knockouts #93 - Use your stash
Cute Card Thursday #377 - Beside the seaside
Crafting by Designs - June - Anything goes
Aud Sentiment - Bingo - Pattern paper, Digi, Punch ( entry #2)
Colour Q #294 - Colour combo
4 Crafty Chicks #205 - Polka Dots
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch SC061015

Thank you and have a fantastic day!
