A bit of cutting and sticking...

Hello lovely peeps...nearly the weekend, but that means I go back to work on Monday :0( never mind, best get plenty of crafting in then!!

I have been decoupaging today and have to say I don't do enough of it especially with such an abundance of beautiful images available on CD roms these days.  This particular image is no exception and came from Joanna Sheen's Tom Mielko Project Book and it's gorgeous... who wouldn't want a house on the beach!?

 I decided on a gatefold card for a change

Here's a shot of the decoupage, I always curl it with my scissors so that the edges are pretty much flat and the glue gel is hidden.

I used the paper that was suggested on the CD for the inside and added the pink gingham from my scrap box. Ribbon and flowers all from my stash.

The inspiration came from here

Joanna Sheen Challenge - Pretty in Pink
The Cd Sunday Challenge - On the beach

See you soon xx

Hi Sarah,
such a very pretty card today. I too love that image and your decoupage is fab. Great inside of the card too.
Well hasn't that week gone by so quick. It only seems like yesterday you said you were on annual leave.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I've given decoupaging a chance (or four) but it never ever looks this wonderful. What a gorgeous image you chose to use on your gatefold card, fantastically inspiring and cheerful. :)
