Bugaboo Christmas In July Day 6

I think my wacky sense of humour got over stimulated with Day 5’s entry and it has spilled over into today! The challenge is a photo inspiration, quite a quirky one for a Christmas challenge!


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Tropical Santa – Buried
Pink Gem Designs – Beach Fence
Décosse’s Dynamite Doodles – A Taste of Summer papers (available until 15th through the blog hop here)
X-Press It card
blue card
white A5 card blank
printer card
Copic pens

I arranged the images and the verse with a fancy frame to make up one picture and printed it on X-Press It card then coloured it with Copics.

The yellow mat is printed from the Taste of Summer papers pack. The card front is covered with blue card then the matted image stuck on top.

There is a story behind the verse, my friend Melanie came up with it years ago and although I cannot now remember what we were doing at the time the verse has stuck in my head ever since. I thought it was apt for today’s challenge theme.  For those of you visiting from other shores, Ingoldmells is a holiday village near Skegness, Lincolnshire. I have never actually been there so cannot comment on what it is like.


Thanks for dropping in. 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.
