A Little Bit Crafty (DT) March Challenge

Good morning all, and today's appearance is accompanied with an annoucement.  Yes, you did read the heading right - I am now DTing for the fabulous Paula over at A Little Bit Crafty!

So here I am for my first appearance for the March challenge and the theme is ARE WE THERE YET?  So this could be holidays, travel, a long journey to grandma's ....... I remember as a child spending what felt like years in the back of my parents' Triumph Herald (I can still remember the registration too, ABJ 111H) while we drove to the seaside.  I am certain that they must have heard "Are we there yet?" many times!

Here is my card, inspired by all those long ago seaside visits:

I fell in love with this Whimsy stamp called Mr Gull-ible
He is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) on Bristol Board
Papers are a mish-mash of Basic Grey, magazine freebie and Trimcraft (I think) but they all came out of the leftovers box so don't hold me to that
Sentiment postcard is by Little Claire Stamps
And the glittery waves were another gem from stuff I have hoarded over the years, they were a magazine freebie too, and very nearly got recycled a month ago!

There are three brilliant sponsors this month
Mo's Digital Pencil
Which Craft
Marianne Design

So, a super theme, and lots of prizes to tempt you.  Time to get crafty!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

A brilliant card Squirrel. Love the seagull! We have lots of days out at the east coast, and I can't wait for the weather to pick up so we can go again.
Have a lovely weekend

I couldn't help but wonder if the "are we there yet?" really applied to spring?

I love your gullible gull. he's a sweetie. All those patterns... like waves. So fun!

Julie said...

Hi Squirrel, what a fab, bright card. I love your gull, he's fun, I've a similar one by Melgen, wish I had more opportunities to use him he just makes me smile. Congrats on your new DT spot, Julie x

Julie said...

Oops, Marij Rahder not Melgen!

Annette said...

He's a sweetie, and I love the grey shading you've given him. I find 'white' so hard to colour, but you've got it spot on.

Great choice of paper too with the clouds! Just perfect.
