Squidgi Digi

This has GOT to be quick because I should be tidying my house right now for my guests coming tonight. They said they'd be here about midnight but with my luck they'll have got away early and ring the bell at 7!!!

My superly duperly fabulicious co-ordinator Lisa has a mega talented daughter Beth who has opened her own digi store Squidgi Digi selling her own images. I bought some months ago but until now haven't had a chance to play with them. It's my nephew's birthday on the 26th (please note it is the 22nd today and that makes me....EARLY lol) and I thought this was the perfect time to use Beth's images :-D

I settled for the male campervan, beach huts and swirl surfboard (which sell for a bargain price of £1.25 each!!) for my card and this is what I came up with....

I had to make a delivery to Craft World the other day (which I left on my upstairs windowsill doh!) and June, Carol and Gail were pricing up some goodies. One of them was a new Bo Bunny 6 x 6 paper pad Barefoot and Bliss...perfect for the theme of my card :-D

The sand is actual sand from Nicole's trip to Australia. Not sure if it was such a good idea to use it and will probably be a the bottom of the envelope when Mark opens it!

I used a glaze pen instead of my usual Glossy Accents on the surfboards and I applied the sand before it had dried completely hence the sand on the boards. I was about to brush it off when I thought it looked pretty realistic no?

This is just one of 5 sentiments, two surfboards and a flower that are one of the digi's...all that for £1.25!!

I hope you like it, I hope Beth and Lisa like it and most importantly I hope my nephew likes it AND my SIL isn't annoyed with the sand lol!!

Right...gotta split. Have a great weekend. Don't forget to add yourself as a follower if you want a chance to win the candy!!! It all ends at midnight tonight.

Catch ya later x

**Scroll down to see the last piece of candy added this morning and a list of the whole stash!**

What a delightful, cheery card - the sand is a brilliant idea and hopefully will not end up at the bottom of the envelope! Nice you mentioned our lovely Craftworld ladies, June is a gem and Carol and Gail too, they make shopping there a pleasure, hence the reason we keep going back and giving in to temptation and buying all those goodies LOL

Sue said...

As for the sand, can't be any worse than the confetti we get in every card from my Godson, it lasts for days LOL
