I combined a couple of Claire's challenges - No 1 Doodle Do and No 3 Old Pajamas - this actually means doodling on a stamped image and using an older set of Waltzingmouse Christmas stamps. I decided to use the solid image from Vintage Ornaments. I stamped it in Strawberry Slush and cut it out with the co-ordinating Spellbinder die. Then I added some doodles to the panels using marker pens. I die cut a panel of white cut, stamped the oval ray pattern using the 3rd generation image and then stamped the sentiment and attached it to the ornament with dimensional tape. I made the background panel by stamping the oval ray patten in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. I layered the background onto pink card and adhered it to the card base. I finished the front with a simple ribbon. On the inside I cut a panel of black card for the mat and on the white panel stamped a bold, simple sentiment in Strawberry Slush.
Now - that really is my last card for the PJ Party! I'm going to make a cup of coffee and sit down to check out all the submissions. But before I go, I told you that we'd were away for the weekend in Holland, Michigan. Below are some (of the many) photos that I took on Saturday when we were in Grand Haven and Muskegon.
Kathryn - she was messing around on this rock and I managed to get a photo of her. Kathryn used to love having her photo taken, but over the last year she's become less keen!!! So I was pleased to get this one. Taken in Grand Haven.
The lighthouse in Grand Haven. Love the bold red colour. It was a lovely afternoon. Jonathan and I both walked to the red house at the end of the pier.
It was a bit windy at the end of the pier, so I decided to try and catch the waves crashing against the walk. And I did!!!! Fortunately I didn't get wet.
On our drive to Muskegon we came across a Veteran's Memorial Park in the middle of the road! It was so beautiful that we decided to stop and look around. I found this cross as we walked around. It was really peaceful.
Finally a photo taken at the Farmers' Market in Grand Haven. It was a fabulous market full of fresh produce and flowers. Love chillies and tomatoes - I bought some to make salsa!! That's it - see you soon.
