Life's A Beach!

Happy Friday The 13th! A Good day...until my tooth cracked again (oh poo!) Obviously the super glue trick didn't work! (** Hamish called it 'magic glue!' It was only temporary, but I think even he thought it would last longer than a week! but!! it was Friday the 13th! and I wasn't eating thick lumps of chocolate, honest!!)
Back to the card!! I made this card for Bugaboo's first Wacky Wednesday Challenge over on Bugaboo Stamps- Crafter's Digital Art Center. It's a Colour Challenge this time, red, yellow and turquoise. So I thought I'd have ago.
Here's my card with that cute little monkey having a swim, although I always thought monkey's didn't like water. The stripy boarder was just scribbled round the edge of the card and coloured with Promarkers. I added a bit of reddish/pink spotty paper and although I was looking for some buckets and spades, I did find a seagull, so fixed that on with a dob of silicone glue. (Cut it's button legs off first) Then did a bit of 3D-ing on the monkey, printed him out four times, so there's a whole image of him cut out using a scalloped Nestie and then one minus ears and tail ( It's a digi! It didn't hurt him!) one with just his head and then just his nose.
I've added a bit of my own background, coloured that with Promakers too.
The font is a freebie. I rather like this one! It's called Pea Johanna Script, link to this site is always on my side bar but I know how lazy you are so you can download it from Kevin and Amanda's blog
Anything else? The pale blue boat paper you can just see inside is a freebie, (I'll probably change it as it doesn't really go with those bright colours on the front) can download it from Mad About Cards... and that I think, is it!
Phew, second time I've typed this out, so glad blogger is up and running again!
Once more, as the post below this one, there were a few challenges I had added, but I'll have to check them out again, so will add them later. Happy Friday everyone, have a great week end! Thanks for stopping by. A Card For Dylan is HERE

    Please tell me that you didn't really superglue your tooth!!!

  2. aw, no Diane, I did go to the dentist last week after biting into a brick of chocolate that had been in the fridge and 'Hamish' used his 'magic glue' to fix it. I said to him, 'is it like super glue?' and he said,'well. sort of! It's only temporary and will only last as long as it does' I think he thought it would last longer than a week though!
