Over on the Gecko Galz blog, the July challenge is 'seaside memories', on receipt of the July email freebie sheet, I spotted a lovely picture, well two actually, to maybe fit this theme - and a butterfly image which will fit perfectly with another blogs theme.

pale blue gems
Everything was imported into CAP2, I took the colour from the main image and used that to colour the background & sentiment tag.
Wanted to do something quite simple, so ended up with this black and white card, using my first member's gift from Create & Craft - the Tattered Lace die 'with love' (and 'best wishes') I love how it turned out.
How blinkin' hard is it to make a male card????? Oh my goodness, family I'm ok with as I temd to use hobbies etc., but a leaving card for a colleague??
I did manage to fit it round a challenge theme though, even if it was 'anything goes' *lol*
Gecko Galz 'Industrail Age' stamp n19
stylish man ???
I used CAP2 to fill in the stamps bubbles, and add some of my own to fit what I wanted to say in. I think the guy came from The graphics Gairy -- not sure, anyway all I did with him was increase the size to fit the design.

Last year I was gifted a huge bag of material via my local group in the freecycle uk network, as usual I have never got round to using it, but I did remember there were 2 little pieces of machine embroidery in there, so this morning I firtled them out and reposted the bag on my local group - if some one can use it, its better than sitting in my craft room unloved.
After some nifty cutting, one of the pieces just fit onto an atc!
So we just need a bit more sunshine, a book and a glass of something nice - perfect!
A lovely vintage & lace card made today to be entered into a challenge, not done any crafting last week as Andrew was off so we had a week of walking, gardening and general odd jobs - now need to have a rest!
