Magnum & Lily on holiday

My BIL is starting an new job in Dubai on cool is that? Or should I say hot lol. I don't envy him at this time of year where the temperatures can get as high as 50 degrees but I think all the rest of it more than compensates for a little heat. How wonderful to go to work in shorts, t's and flip flops :-D
Anywho, I had the purr-fect (get it?!) image for a good luck card...Magnum and Lily on the beach!!! Coincidence? Absolutely lol.
I know he's not going to be sitting back and relaxing but I couldn't resist putting this sentiment on the card. I will put some more cheek on the inside heehee.

I thought this image would be perfect to colour in with my water colours. Are you shocked?? Water colours were my first love and I would NEVER part with them. It's almost a must to go outside the lines lol (take note Pro Markers!)I have an amazing set...Caran D'Ache Neoclour II...84!!! Forgive me if I sound smug...but I am lol. Although I don't use them very often I do get a tingle when I bring them out. They are still in the same order as when I received them...I am very anal about that and if one is in it's wrong space I get in a little flap!!! Bet you didn't know that about me huh lolololol!

Ahhhhh...this is the life! Both Magnum and Lily look so chill-axed...I do hope those drinks are of the non-alcohol variety!
When I was thinking up how I wanted the card to look I immediately thought of my EK border punch. I think it goes perfectly with the paper. Speaking of which...isn't it gorgeous! I ordered this from Hayley with this image in mind. She kept teasing me with all the new papers she was getting so I had to investigate. This Bo Bunny (what else?!) Sun Kissed Chillin' (perfect name {sigh}) paper is so yummy. See the button? It's another clear one but I punched a 3/4" circle of the other side of SKC pp and glued it to the button with GA. Once it was dry I poke the holes through and threaded SU! twine through the button and around the card tying it in a bow. Kinda nautical...I thought :-D
I also got some pp from the Bo Bunny Petal Pushers range. OMGoodness!!!! Love it...especially HAVE to check it out {sigh} All that talk has made me want to make a card with it so I'm off.
Have a great Saturday :-D
Catch ya later x
