Cute Card Thursday # 74 - Lazy Dayz.....

























Hiya peeps!

What a great name for a challenge this week over at Cute Card Thursday and I knew exactly the image I wanted to use. I am so in love with the designs created by Mo at her Digital Pencil Too site....... they are just fab and I now have lots of yummy images sat waiting to be coloured! This little beauty sums up lazy days perfectly, sat whistfully daydreaming in the breeze. What I like about using digital images is that sometimes you can make them quite large, so that all the attention is given to the content and not much else is needed. Even someone like me who loves to pile on the embellies has to hold back sometimes, lol!

I'm not sure where this backing papers is from as I was using up scraps, but I think it's very pretty all the same and the colours are really summery. All the other bits and bobs are from my stash and the sentiment was created on the PC........ please don't look too closely, I know it's a bit wonky. Well I must have been having a bit of a wonky day today but I don't care....... it's been fun!!!

I'm looking forward to having a blog hop now to see what you've all created and I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for the lovely Basic Grey challenge...... be sure to check it out won't you - I've had a sneaky peek and this weeks cards are stunning!

Have a great weekend........ hugs Tara xx
