Holiday Time

Oh Lordy, it's been three weeks since I last posted, I really need to get my crafty bum into action!

In that time we've been on a lovely family holiday to Barcelona, it's such a beautiful city.  We rented an apartment which was only a minute's walk from Gaudi's Sagrada Familia.  The outside of the building is maybe not everyone's cup of tea but the inside is stunning.

I have to say we are truly "Gaudie'd out" after our trip but the shopping there is fabulous too.  Will definitely be a city I will return to.

Anyways, I'm here today with a card for the new Crafty Cardmakers challenge - FUN IN THE SUN -  which this time is hosted by Lin.  (Lin would like to see something relating to summer fun, so that might be holiday related, or something you might do outdoors when the sun is shining)

I used part of an image by Saturated Canary (Winnie Goes Camping) which I coloured with Promarkers then layered up with some DP and some ribbon for grass, then added some stitching for detail.  I haven't done any colouring for ages and this is the first time I've used a digi image.  I did wonder if the image would bleed when I started to colour it, but it was fine!

Our sponsors for this challenge are 

I'd also like to enter the current challenge over at Addicted to CAS - which is Holiday.

Thanks for popping, I'll be back soon (no really I will!).

Take Care
Suze xx
