Seaside Fun - Digital Delights DT

Wow Thursday already, not sure where this week has gone............  We have had lovely weather so far this week, very warm although yesterday was so humid, very sticky!!  

My card for Digital Delights features the very cute Peyton and today he is at the seaside with his bucket and spade, great fun!!!   The paper kind of set the scene for me so I have just added a few shells and fibre, decoupaged the sun and cut another wave from matching piece of paper to give it some depth,

Sorry for the late post,  I have only just managed to get it typed up, what a week! I mentioned in my post on Sunday that I thought I was coming down with something, well I sure did spent best part of  3 days under the duvet!!  Thought yesterday that I was over the worst but had a rough night and feel totally rubbish again today!!
Okay so its Inspiration Thursday over at Digital Delights and my card today is a very simple one, I made this on Sunday but it was a bit rushed as I was not feeling good so not  my best I know, but never mind we all  need to rustle up something quick and easy now and again!!  This is Scrubbie Ted and he has his ticket to the swimming baths LOL!!!

Teddy Bea Sunday

Hope all those daddies out there are enjoying their day, wonder how many got breakfast in bed, ah those days have gone for me getting the kids organised to make it and take it up on a tray!!  Still hubby was pleased with this mug, chocs and gift card!!!

I have a horrible feeling I have something brewing, I feel quite yucky today,I am hoping it is short lived and whatever it is it can 'go away'!!
So I was so lucky to win the last challenge over at Teddy Bo and I was runner up the week before so I have 6 digi's to play with, lucky me!  The current challenge is a gift card, mmm I have gone very simple (coz that's all I can do LOL) and attached a pocket to the inside with a little folder to hold the card, that' about as technical as I can get!   I thought this was a great image to hold and I-Tunes voucher!! Mind you while looking for some inspiration I did come across this tutorial for a gift card holder which I would have used had I not already coloured my image, she is way to big for the dimension on this one, but it is a fab tutorial and one I think I will use at a later date, you can find it over on the All that Scraps Blog!
