Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Travel/Holidays

Morning Everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend, mine was very busy, I made 10 cards for a commission on Friday, got a new phone on Saturday and spent a fab afternoon and evening with my Best Friend and her little boy and went out for lunch with Hubby and the kids for Father's Day yesterday. I will be back tomorrow to share the card I made for him this year. It's a shame the weekend had to end but the good thing about Mondays is that we bring you a new Pollycraft Challenge and the theme this weeks chosen by our new DT member Cazza is:
Travel /Holidays

It took me a while to decide what I was going to make and then settled on one of the fabulous new Sonny Honeycloud images, this one is called Life's a Beach so I just had to create a beach scene for her to stand in!

I used scraps from my scrap box layered up with lot of sewing to create a sandy beach and tucked a flower between the layers before sewing them together. I used some sentiment stamps to stamp into a ticket which I had stamped onto Kraft card and added it to the bottom right hand corner of the card. I printed Sonny onto smooth card and then coloured her in with Promarkers before cutting her out and adding her to the card with foam pads. The finishing touch was a ribbon tab topped with a spotty button. I hope you will be able to join us for this week's Challenge for the chance to win a voucher for My Mum's Craft shop who are opening a Bricks and Mortar shop in one of my favourite places...Poundbury in Dorset!


Make sure you check out the Challenge blog for all the details and lots of inspiration from the DT!
Have a great Monday!
