Hi Everybody!

I think most people would consider an afternoon snoozing in a deck chair in the sun, on the beach, with the sound of crashing waves in the background, fun.  I personally wouldn't, since I'm not much of a sun lover, but I think most would.  This week I've made a Father's Day card aimed at a sun lover, having some outdoor fun:

I've used Holidays from the Work & Play 3 collection on my card.  I've coloured the image with markers and added in some sand and surf.  I've also added a few pre-coloured images from the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles collection (sandcastle; bucket & spade; flip flops and camera).  The sentiment is from the Winnie Special Moments collection.

I created the card by die cutting the circle from the front, to line up with my snoozing character.  All the sealife additions are chipboard laser cuts that I have sprayed with white Gesso.  I've added a little rope.

So... don't forget there's a special Discount Code waiting for you at Digi Choosday!  We'd also love to see your creations in our challenge!
