Shell Frame

Like a true Brit, I'm going to talk weather as it has been great this weekend hasn't it and believe me I have the face to prove it!!!  Rudolph has nothing on me!!!

Mark and I went to Silverstone on Saturday for the qualifying rounds of the Grand Prix.  The sun was out but it was a little bit windy as well which was not a good mixture when you don't have any sun tan lotion on, is it?  Spent a great day there, watched some fab driving, quality time with friends and a chance to beat the traffic on the motorbike too.

Yesterday was spent busy finishing my Clarity samples for the shows next weekend on Create and Craft so make sure you're free or you've set it to record.


As you all know by now on the first of the month the Clarity Stamp challenge launches it's new challenge and this one ties in very nicely with the great weather we've had.  The theme for July's challenge is:

So grab your "kiss me quick" hats, slap on some sun tan lotion and come and join in the challenge.  You could be the winner of the £50 Clarity voucher.  Sound tempting?

Here's my card for inspiration, but the design team have loads more inspiration over on the challenge blog if you fancy a look.

Materials used:
Stamp - single shell
Stamp - shell cluster
Stamp kit - making a point
Coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers
Adirondack inks - stonewashed, cloudy blue
sunshine yellow and sunset orange
Grande nestabilities - creative book pages
Stamp - small tree
Stamp - coast
Sentiment - walk along the sea
Black detailed embossing powder

I'd like to enter my frame into the following challenges:

Inky Chicks - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - name that song (oh I do like to be beside the seaside)
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
A Little Bit Crafty - die'ing for it
Creatalicious - all about summer
Crafty Cardmakers - holiday

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
