Life by the sea side

For at least a year or so have I had a whole bunch of stamps from Joanna Sheen just laying around. I love them to bits but I have been in no mood to colour with distress inks or water colours. Well, that was until my kids asked for a whole bunch of cards for their teachers at kinder garten. I was foolish enough to start that tradition at Christmas time a few years back when I didn't like the fact that the kitchen staff and cleaning staff didn't get anything when all the teachers got a little gift from the kids. So now each semester ends with me making at least 10 cards for the kids favourite staff at kindergarten. Lucky for me that includes their teachers too. LoL

So here comes number 2 of the ten cards I made, and seven of the cards was made using the Joanna Sheen range of Faye Whittaker stamps. The 1st was the card shown for the challenge over at the Paper Shelter earlier this week.

This card is made with the FW stamp, coloured with distress inks and markers. Gosh! those markers are really handy when it comes to skin colours. Love them for that. When I have a few more of them I might even like them better. So easy to bring out in the garden to paint with, maybe not the garden... The designer papers are from Maja design Skärgårdsliv. They came out last year and eveyone got nuts about them. Me too, so much that I didn't use them even if I bought double sets of them.

I will enter this card to the following challenges
Card Makin Mamas - Red white and blue
Chocolate, Coffee and cards - Anything goes
Emergency Crafters - Summer Sun
Joanna Sheen Challenges - Summer Daze

Love n hugs
