Crafty Friends Challenge Midway Inspiration

Hi everybody

I've been stuck on a train for the last three hours because of a broken train on the track in front of us...only in Ireland!!! But at least I have wifi, so I haven't turned into a complete crazed demon yet :P

Here's my second card from the Crafty Friends Challenge. We have a picture inspiration challenge for you this time round, and this is our picture:
So you can take the colours, the summer theme, clouds, balloons etc :)

We're sponsored by 
who are providing our lucky winner with the choice of 3 images up to $10 from the 3 creators that are being highlighted by the design team during this challenge:
Stitchy Stamps, Floppy Latte, Lil Diva.

I used an image from Floppy Latte for this card. I made an easel card.

Ribbon from stash
Sentiment tags - LOTV
Embossing folders - Cuttlebug Divine Swirls, Embossilicious Petite Dots
Shells from stash
Mirri card

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Allsorts challenge blog - Favourite things (white on white, LOTV sentiment tags, stickles, embossing)
Cards for men Bingo (Dry embossing/Digi/Multifold)
Papertake Weekly - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue (the digi is new, the swirly embossing folder is old, I took the shells off a beach, and the ribbon is blue :D)

Thanks for looking, from one seriously bored, grumpy Tags!! This train was meant to be arrived an an hour ago, and I still have a 2 hour journey in front of me...grrrr!


  1. Oooh now that is what I could do with - a splash in a cool pool, not a dolphin! Honestly, what would I do with a dolphin? Gorgeous hun, love it.
    Oh poor you, three hours?! That is crazy. I hope they made sure you had water and stuff. I would have been crawling on the ceiling. Big hugs Sxx

  2. Lovely Tanya, great image and fab design, Kate x

  6. Oh dear Tanya, I do hope your journey got underway eventually. If it's any consolation the very same happened to us on the way back from Edinburgh while ago, we got far as Newcastle and that's where we sat for more than two hours because of the wire blown down by the wind.

    Your card is a beautiful take on the summer season, the glossy accents on the splashes of water is a great touch and of course I'm a real sucker for easel cards.

    It's great to see you at Allsorts challenge this week, thanks so much for joining in.
