Outdoor dining is something I really enjoy in the summer - barbeques in particular. Earlier in the week I hosted an al fresco dinner for my husband's work colleagues wich was very enjoyable. We've also been invited to visit our neighbours this weekend as they have one of those fancy pizza ovens in their garden so I'm very much looking forward to it!
Speaking of the outdoors, over on the Daring Cardmakers Miri has chosen a fabulous challenge this week perfect for this time of year. She wants anything you might do outside in the summer on your cards. For me it has to going to the seaside and eating ice-cream. I absolutely love the sea and everything to do with it. My other passion is eating ice-cream and I am known to eat them in the winter as well........
I've used the wonderful Beach Life papers and decoupage illustrated by the very talented Helz Cuppleditch that are produced by Trimcraft. I bought them on offer from Create & Craft recently.
The collection just screams summer to me and I've used the papers for the background and added washi tape. After making up the decoupage I've cut the shells and starfish from the papers and added them to the topper. Don't you think the images are just so adorable?
There is plenty more inspiration over on the Daring Cardmakers blog HERE and I hope you'll join in with the challenge.
Have a great weekend!
