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.
