Sand,Sun and Surf

Morning crafters,still warm here but very dull,yesterday was a scorcher , far too hot to craft. I was lucky enough to be taken for lunch by my Mum, she payed in exchange for me doing her hair, good deal for me I thought. It was lovely because , for a change, we could sit outside.
Keeping to a summery feel my card features a "fun in the sun" House Mouse and friends stamped image,coloured with promarkers. I've added flower soft sand and puffy embossing powder for the sun cream. I cut out a foam mounted the image, the background paper is Beach Babe, a free gift with cardmaking and paper craft mag. The added flip flops, sunglasses and cream are from a sticker set by Jolees Boutique.The sun is a woodware punch.

Great summer scene. That bp is handy - I thought you'd been playing with Craft artist or something like that. Too hot for me at the moment. I'm alright in the craft room till mid afternoon then have to evacuate as the sun comes round - too hot and bright - even with a blind fitted.
