Seaside Fun!!! Winner!! SWEET STUFF!!

A very happy Monday to everyone! I hope you have had a marvelous weekend and are ready for an even better week! I am happy to report that the roof is completely finished on my own house and the cottage and barn repairs will be underway for a while longer....ARGH!!! I would never have believed how much crafting STUFF I have and that is going to change one way or the other...lolol...Suggestions, anyone????

Today is my first posting over at the Southern Ridge Trading Company blog and I would love for all of you to come over for a visit. This company has such delightful chipboard and wood cuts that I know you will be interested in checking them out! I have been invited to join this group and to use the wonderful products found in the SRTC shop. You can also see how some of the products are used over on the Facebook page HERE.



I would like to show you my first chipboard creation---a card I made using the lovely lighthouse TRA-329 (which will be on the web site very soon) and the fence from GAR-185. I am new to chipboard so this was just so much fun and exciting and I'm sure you will enjoy using it also. It certainly adds a new dimension to anything you might make! There are so many new images out now from Magnolia, Bildmalarna, Whimsy, etc that are beach/sea related that this lighthouse would be so useable for them...love it!!!


The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Bildmalarna An Ocean and Strawberries  collection. The image is also from Bildmalarna and was colored with Copics and Promarkers. The lighthouse was painted with acrylics, adding a bit of shading and using gold glitter paint for the windows and a pearl for the top of the cupola. Along the bottom I used a piece of the fence from the GAR-185 set and some Sand FlowerSoft, adding a few sea related buttons. That little fence reminds me of the driftwood fences we see along the Eastern Seaboard. The front was finished with satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow, some hemp twine, and a ship's wheel charm. Finally I added some burlap corners to the image panel and some pearls to the corners.


On the inside I used the rest of the little fence, more sand and buttons, pearls, metal corner piece, and satin ribbon with hemp twine.


WINNER!!!

Sorry for my tardiness in naming the winner of sweet little Daphne, the lovely butterfly border die, and traveling companions, but I hope you can understand the MESS I have been in. Mr Random.org has selected the winner from your comments.....
