Lazy Summer Days...

It's been a while since I came back from the seaside and I still dream of my lazy mornings under the sun on my deck chair...
I love to wake up early, have a huge breakfast with cofee, bread and jam (which I don't normally eat) and time to do that...
Then, we head to the beach: it's not yet crowded, not yet too hot, sun is still of a warm yellow and I lay down and enjoy the hot rays on my back.

When I was asked to choose an image for my monthly card for Paper Playtime Digi Monday Challenge with Summer as theme I immediately had to have THIS ONE: it means summer, seaside, vacation, laziness, sun, hot weather...

Here's my card:
This perfect summer digi is from Delicious Doodles and is called Deckchair (you can find it here).
I used a simple yellow card (yellow is the color of summer!) and I dotted it with white paint. Then added a patterned paper I found in a magazine and some ribbons. The digi is colored with watercolor pencils and I also added a touch of glitter and two pearls.

Don't forget to have a look at our monthly digi challenge DT cards!

I'm Back!!!

I've just come back from a short vacation on the beach and I've realized I have to start with Fall and Winter cards!
It was terrible: I sat down and switched the computer on (I don't bring it with me on holiday and... I don't miss it at all!!!), had a look at my favorite shops and blogs and... voilĂ , Christmas in July...

Although I love Christmas, I don't feel the need to celebrate Christmas in July, I don't like to start buying Christmas gifts so early and I don't like to think about snow and winter with 40°C.

But...

I have an Etsy shop and I have to start thinking in advance and that's why I have a Halloween card to show you:
I was looking at all the new releases I missed while on vacation and immediately fell in love with this little wizard from Stampfairy: I've never read Harry Potter and I've never seen one of the movies but this little wizard and his adorable owl had to be mine!

I missed challenges a bit so I decided to have a look at my favorite one: Sweet Sketch Wednesday. And it was a GREAT idea, Stampfairy isthe sponsor this week, so I immediately started making my Halloween card!
This is the sketch:
Unfortunately, I haven't had time to look through my list of challenges to see if I could enter another one with this card, so I will enter only Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 110 but I'm so happy I've made a new card after such a long time.

I actually made two... I'll show you the other one in a few days!

MESSAGE for SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY DT: I don't manage to leave comments! I don't know what's happening, I'm sorry!
