Summer is fast approaching, even though the weather is still a bit changeable here in the UK, so I thought I would make a quick Holiday card. I love Molly Blooms and adore this Rubber Stamp called 'Molly At The Beach." I thought as she's on holiday then why not add these gorgeous 'Beach Huts' from Squidgi Digi. I have to say they look quite cool together, especially in the 'Miami Vice' colours!
The papers are downloaded from Pink Petticoat. The Sentiment was made on computer. I nearly always add embellishments to the corners but when I tried this it looked wrong so have left it be. I think maybe it would ruin the papers and the effect of sky and sea? Or should I have gone overboard? I don't know? LOL
I have finally treated myself to some Prismacolor Pencils. They take some getting used to but I think they look quite nice when you blend them and combine them with pens. I just watched Bev Rochester's fab video on colouring with Copics and Prisma Pencils and so picked up some good hints!
Hair: Tan and Cinnamon

My Followers are back at last! They kept disappearing and reappearing over last few days. I found that if I changed between Browsers, then it let me Log In. So if I was on Google Chrome, I changed to Safari or Firefox. It seemed to work so that I could at least comment. I hope Blogger gets sorted out over Bank Holiday, it must be a nightmare if you are trying to run Challenges!
Thanks for visiting!
Hope you are all having a lovely Bank Holiday!
Love Sue xx
