ABC Challenges - A is for August

Hi again.. a very quick post from me today. It's been one of those weeks where anything that could have gone wrong, has gone wrong, lol.

Anyway, the challenge for this fortnight on ABC Challenges is to make a card/layout/etc using your interpretation of August. For some people it could be vacation time, school time or even the beginning of Autumn depending on where you live in the world. 

We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a voucher to spend in their online store.


I went with a Summer Vacation theme and am also entering into Simon Says Stamp challenge of song inspiration - We're all Going on a Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard is my song inspiration :) 

I used a cutie pie of a Magnolia image from last year's summer kit and masked her to sit on the rubber tube. I've coloured her using copic markers. I made the 'clouds' using a hand cut template and Tumbled Glass distress ink.

The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - so this card will also be entered into their challenge of Lovely Lace. The doily, Tim Holtz adage ticket and pearls are from my stash.

Be sure to pop over to the ABC Challenge blog to see my wonderful teamies' creations!!
