Building Sandcastles

Happy Sunday!

I've had a very worrying kind of week this week, i'm glad to see the back of it to be honest.  Yesterday morning my little Cherry (cat) went out for the first time since her op and hasn't come back yet ... the only other time she disappeared I found her in our car engine ... after i'd driven 8 miles to school!! I then had to drive her home covered in oil and petrified, she was only a few moths old.  We've been walking up and down the street listening at all the cars to see if we can hear her (how strange did we look)

Anyway we decided to nip out and get some holiday brochures to take our mind off things and that's what inspired this card (although the whole time I was making it I kept expecting Cherry to jump on my desk).

This super cute digi is from Cuddly Buddly and is called "Building Sandcastles" and is by Lilyboo.

I coloured her with my pro/flex markers.

I used a gorgeous new paper pad I bought from The Craft box and it's called "Rock Pool" by Kaisercraft.

I matted it all with Bazzill basics and added die cuts and dewdrops.

The sentiment reads "Having a Whale of a time" but the camera wouldn't pick it up :-(

Here's a quick sideways shot - the inside has been decorated to compliment the front.

I hope you like it.

I'm going to go and have another shout out the door for Cherry and then maybe i'll get time to do a little commenting on all your lovely blogs.

Love and hugs xx Cara xx
