Make It Monday #113 with Ladies That Craft

Hi there, how's things?

It was a huge week over at Make It Monday last week, halloween has you all going in to creative overdrive!!

There were so many fantastic entries.

Congratulations to this week's winners.

A new linky party starts today and this week we are sponsored by

Julie at

Julie is very generously offering a fabulous prize of a 
mini book kit and a disc of Gayles latest Digi Stamps.

Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!

The design team and I were fortunate enough to be given these fabulous images to play with this week and we absolutely love them!

I chose to use Beach Huts

The card base and the tri coloured strip in the centre are pieces from a card kit my Mum gave me and I added some paint peeling timber paper from my stash.

I brought the colours of the papers together in the beach huts with my Copics.
I'm not particularly happy with my sky background, think I'm going to have to hit my teamie Chrissy up for some lessons!

But over all I'm really pleased with how this card turned out, it appeals to my post holiday state of mind, lol.

I do hope you can all come on over to 


this week and join in the fun.

I loved to come see what you have been creating!

Before you go though, I would like to share with you an entry from last week's link up that was a real stand out for me.

It was linked up by

Isn't sweet?! Love the simple design and brilliant colouring, really pops!!

Thanks for sharing with us Lola.

Bye for now!

Michelle :o)

Wonderful card, love that peeling paint background paper and how your huts were coloured to match your papers. And the sentiment is very appropriate. We had a beautiful sunny day today and it's supposed to be hot again tomorrow.
Very cute POTW, fun little butterflies in beautiful bright colours.

What a nice, colorful card! Those beach huts really make me think of summer, so the sunny hello sentiment fits the theme of your card so well! I also like the papers you've used as background.
