summer lovin' at Jenny's place

The current challenge over at Wee Memories is Summertime..... For me that means the beach... this fun card isn't really the beach, but it is a sea scene... with a happy whale

By the Sea

I recently got a stamp set from The Crafter's Meow called "It's a Shore Thing"  and this adorable little whale was part of it.  I cut the whale out and used glossy accents to make it shine.  I also used some glossy accents on the waves and the splashes.  I used some distress ink for the sea and sky.   I hand drew the silver gulls.   I used some downloaded PP which I recoloured in PSE8 for my background and used a silver gel pen to add some faux stitching.

I managed to get my space a bit tidier....for me at least!!!
As tidy as I get.

And we had a lovely drive about 35 mins north for lunch at the Puhoi pub yesterday.  Kieran got to drive the car there and I got to drive it home.... fantastic to drive


Off to look at Summer Card Camp colours for the week.... talk about challenging!!!!!!!

Have a great week

What a cute whale! It's very summery. What a beautiful shine on Uncle Peter's new car, bet it smells so nice inside as well :) Your craft area looks a bit like mine. Mine is always organised chaos but I wouldn't have it any other way :)
