The Pencil Case - W = Whatever (Anything Goes)!

Hello! Happy Saturday everyone!

We have a new challenge starting today on THE PENCIL CASE blog and our theme is Whatever!!!  In other words Anything Goes! As always the team are showcasing the incredible LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS and this time we are sponsored by the totes amazeballs…
………who are very kindly offering an incredible prize so check out THE BLOG for details.
Now this is actually a card I made for the Create and Craft show Nikky did a few weeks ago. 
These fabby beach huts are part of the SUMMERTIME CD DOWNLOAD and I merged them with a couple of the clouds and that big round yellow thing…now what’s it called….oh yes the sun that are also included in the bundle.  If you live in the UK you will understand my forgetful nature.  Did we have summer??  Did I miss it??

Paper, sentiment and B/W digis (beach huts, sunglasses, clouds, sun): SUMMERTIME CD DOWNLOAD
Colouring Card: Neenah Solar White
Other card: Kraft
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Centre Stepper’ – First Edition ‘Under the Sea’ – Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’
Others: String – Vintage Photo and Salty Ocean DI – White gel pen

Well life can be a beach but don’t sand on ceremony and surf over to THE BLOG and join our fab challenge (don’t worry I’m off for a lie down).  And if you want to experience these amazing artist quality pencils for yourself you can get them HERE! And if you already have them and enjoy using them why not share your makes with us in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We would love to see you!

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!

See ya!
