Sometimes my Hubby calls me "Kathy Half-Jobs", because I have times when I've made a start on so many things (not just craft stuff) and managed to finish none of them. I think it's because they're all important and I can't decide which should be at the top of the list! I do get there in the end though.
This week on the Daring Cardmakers we're heading to the seaside. Actually I wish I really was heading there, I could use a breath of fresh seaside air atm!
The cards the girls have made are lovely and all so different. It's such a great starting point as there are so many ways to run with the Seaside theme.
One of my favourite days out is to head over to Southwold and have a walk along the prom. It's very wide, and lined with an ice-cream sundae of beautiful beach huts. Every so often one comes up for sale and they cost an absolute fortune!
Down by the Sea
Over on this side of the world we're coming to the end of the Summer, and on Keryn's side they'll soon be dusting off their buckets, spades and sun-hats.
We don't just enjoy being by the sea in the Summer, it doesn't matter what the season is, the seaside is a great place to be, so this week we'd love you to make cards with any sort of seaside theme.
After a bit of thinking time I realised that there was only one way for me to go. It just had to be beach huts!
I think they are fab!
I actually made this Robo template a while back to make my set of houses for a swap, but now it's made a row of beach huts for my card, I couldn't resist photographing it alongside something from my beach hut themed collection!
I sliced a few cms off the long side of a DL card so that the roofs of the huts would stand out above the fold, then cut them in layers of plain card and in the patterned papers. The wording is my own - at least I think it is, but you never really know if it's something you heard and filed away in deepest recesses of your mind, do you?
My greatest regret on this card is that I didn't stop myself adding the black doodling on the beach huts. Why oh why can't I leave well alone?
Supplies: Buttons, beads and papers from stash - no idea who made any of them, sorry
Please visit the DCM BLOG and see the other seaside cards - they are all so lovely - we hope there'll be lots more to see around the Darer's blogs over the coming week (that's a hint for you to join in with us!)
Oh go on then, since you asked so nicely ;) here's another picture of some Southwold beach huts!
Thanks for popping by
Right, now where's that to-do list?
