Good morning. I hope today is a better day for me than yesterday - won't go into too much detail but the day started with some utility men having to dig a great big hole in my front garden to access a service line cable in order to be able to find a fault that had left a neighbour without electricity. They then had to turn my power off and so I had no internet access for most of the day - it felt like my right arm had been cut off lol!!! So now my neighbour has electricity and I have been left with a lovely designer bald patch in my garden - which they are supposed to be coming back to re-turf!!!! The most frustrating thing about all of this is that neither the builders nor the solicitor told us about this service line running across our garden when we purchased the house. Oh and we also recently discovered that we have an official public right of way running right down the middle of our back garden!!!!!!!
Anyways the only safe place to be yesterday was tucked away in my little crafty haven - so there's the positive from it all :-)
So today sees another new challenge over at
and this time it is being hosted by my lovely teamie Lisa but before I let you know about it I would just like to say a massive thank you for all the gorgeous entries we had for Hazel's Clean & Simple challenge - don't forget to check if you were the lucky winner and who made Hazel's Top3.
This week our sponsor is the very talented Beth from
and the DT were lucky enough to have some images to play with.
I chose these gorgeous Beach Huts
and decided to go for a beach scene. I used DI to create a sky and sand and Pink Petticoat DP's to co-ordinate on the base card. I also used some scrummy ice cream colour cardstock to paper piece the beach huts and added teeny silver brads as the door handles.
I also used a very summery Anya coloured with Whispers pens, cut out and placed in front of the scene.
I added a touch of Glossy Accents to her sunglasses:
