Swapping challenges


I missed out on getting my entry done on time for the Art By Mi Ran progressive challenge on Facebook so have entered it into the monthly challenge which this month is Anything Goes.


Materials Used:
Art By Mi Ran – Sunshine Suzie (#297)
DDDoodles – A Taste of Summer Kit (on offer as a prize for the Blog Hop)
Spellbinders grand labels #23 dies
circle die
white printer card
A5 card blank
X-Press It card
acrylic greeting stamp
archival black ink
Copic pens

Suzie is coloured in with Copics and this time I have stuck to my favourite combination of reds. She has then been fussy cut and stuck to the background using gel glue.

I have used papers and elements from the Taste of Summer Kit to make up the background. I was attempting to suggest that she is standing on the beach. The wavy blue line on the yellow is supposed to be waves on the sand!

We have been having some very strange weather lately here in the UK. It is July and some days have felt more like October or November but then there have been some lovely days with sunshine and no rain. We are really hoping for a good August for our holiday and our daughters wedding.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Hi Pippa. Fantastic card. Great colouring. She is a real cutie. The weather here in Spain is strange as well. We had a thunder and down pours yesterday morning. Hope you get good weather for your holiday and daughters wedding.
    Have a lovely weekend.
