The Good Life

Good evening to all my friends and followers today, hope you are all having a good week. The weather here in the UK is certainly beautiful at the moment, long may it continue!!
I have had a quiet second week of my holidays with lots of time for myself today so decided I would spend it at my craft table. Last weekend while I was busy colouring some images with my Promarkers, hubby decided he wanted to get in on the action so I passed him this fab image from Just Inklined and said he could have a go. I must say I was most impressed with the outcome-and I know what to do next time I'm pushed for time-I'll outsource all my colouring!!!!
He chose these colours so it was then up to me to match up some papers (not the way I normally do it so it was a bit of a challenge). I found these in my stash which I thought went really well, I'm afraid I don't know where they came from as the cover is long gone. I punched a strip in Kraft card with a Martha Stewart edger punch and added a computer generated sentiment and some card candi and there we have it!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations #308 -a trio of (card candi)

Well that's all from me for now, hopefully we can all be sitting in a deckchair enjoying the weather this weekend!

Until next time.
