I hardly …..

…… ever do this!
That is, combine two challenges. I guess there is always a first time.

Cora at DigitalTwoForTuesday has supplied us with lovely images, once again.
The challenge over at Hilda/Sam's LotsToDo is to use acetate, somewhere and somehow.
So, in my a tissue, a coughing, and a wheezing and sneezing moment, I came up with this!

I printed the lovely lady onto acetate, mounted her onto cardstock and (carefully) cut her out. It's an ATC. The 'water' background was created using CB Distressed Stripes(?) Dragged a chalk slap over and added a dash of Stickles, a yacht charm and sun itty bits. The 'sand' is stip of cork from my stash.

Roll on Summer. August is almost upon us. August brings the winds, which brings the September rains, which heralds Spring. Do I sound just a tad impatient? Well I am. I need the natural warmth from the SUN, not an un-natural heat heater, that requires electricity!

Take care and keep well and thanks so much for visiting.

Ah..ah… ah…

…..AHTCCCHOOOOO! Bless Me! Sorry about that! There are some things we can control and then there are some we cannot.
I never knew that I could get bronchitis and ‘flu by reading fellow bloggers blogs, who were inflicted. This new technology is actually ‘deadly’
So, before my face ex/implodes again (sneezes) this is what I managed in the vast creative field. Pretty pathetic, but it’s hard to read the challenges when said face explodes in sneezes, tissues and tears obscure vision, connection between brain and fingers short circuit and pet dog emits deadly gases, loudly, so much so that he awakes himself. Thank goodness my nasal passages are blocked and so do not allow offensive smells to invade.

This is my contribution to the LotsToDoChallenge The theme is Paris. I have been to France but not Paris. We stayed in a park home area called St. Jean de Monts. It was lovely but dang the weather!!!! Beautiful blue skies! Gather buckets and spades and by the time (seconds) you get to the door, it has clouded over and is bucketing down! Cruel!
That's Life I Guess and sooooo .....

Take care and keep well.

Keep warm in the South and keep cool in the North. I won’t laugh and say the situation will soon be reversed. We need Winter to appreciate the new beginning of Spring.

Hugs and love and thanks for visiting and leaving bits of YOU

Beautiful Images ...

..... again from Cora at DigitalTwoForTuesday I played with my crayons, paints and cuttlebug again.
(ooops, a tad skew)

These will no doubt play centre stage on cards. With these lovely ladies Cora is providing, I am thinking of making a set! Either to package as a gift or as individual cards.
Have fun everyone and enjoy what you do and as always, thank you for visiting.
Big Hugs
