Time to Chillax

Yet another fortnight has flown by over at Aud Sentiments. So that must mean it's new challenge time....
This fortnight we want to see projects which 
include a number in the sentiment.

For this challenge we are so excited to have Digi Darla as our sponsor.
Thanks so much!

Here is a little bit about them...

DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea.

Emilea and I both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever!

There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of "hiding behind the scenes" and avoiding having one spokeswoman, DigiDarla was born!

The stamps you will find in the store and on this site come from our art as well as a few family friends that help to digitize so we can keep up. Even Emilea's art teacher has granted permission to create digis from her artwork.


For my card I've used the 'beach time' stamp from Digi Darla. I think the penguin is adorable, and I so wish I was sat on a beach with a cool drink right now.

The sky background has been paper pieced & then the rest has been coloured in with my Pro Markers. I opted for bright and cheery. The parasol has been coloured in the same colours as a parasol we purchased when I was a child on my 1st beach holiday abroad. Happy memories :)
I've decoupaged the parasol so that it pops out a bit. 
And at long last I get to use those sweet little flip flops, they've been in my stash for years!

The card is based on the sketch from this weeks challenge at sketch Saturday.  I do love their sketches.

I would like to enter the following challenges with my card

Sketch Saturday Challenge Week-220

That's it from me, fingers crossed for that nice weather at the weekend, here in the UK.
Have a good one.
