Been playing yet again.....

.....I do love a good playabout LOL.

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. Hugs for everyone who needs or wants them!

My apologies for not blogging yesterday, I had to go for my annual eye photograph session. The good news is that I don't need new glasses this year, and that my cataract has not progressed at all in a whole year, and even better, my eyes are not showing any signs of high blood pressure this year :o)

By the time I got home I made the mistake of turning the TV on to see how Chris Froome was doing in the Tour de France and that was it, I was glued there until the end of the stage and Froome was still in possesion of the Yellow Jersey,  go Froome go Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

I will do my best to catch up!

In the meantime, what did I come on here to do???
Oh yes, of course, I have a card to show you LOL. 

Among other things while I was playing with SCAL, I created this cloudbank and cut it out with my old Cricut, which meant I just had to make a card using it LOL.
Base card is white linencard folded and cut to nearly 6x6.
Image stamped with SU, then coloured with Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils and Copic markers. Although you can't see it here, the sky and the sand really are lightly coloured.
I attached the image to the basecard, then framed it with the offcut from a previous card to which I had stuck my cloudbank on the underside first.
I used a pale grey Copic pen to add a bit of definition to the clouds.
Sentiment will be added if and when required.
Not the best I've ever made but I did enjoy the playing :o)

This is so lovely and of coursed captured my heart due to the beach scene. I live in such a hilly area, riding a bike is almost impossible in many places, but riding at the beach is awesome. Wow, working with old Cricut and using SCAL. I don't know if I could rmember. Kudos to you. Glad about your eye exam. My sister has worn glasses since she was two years old. She finally had the cataract surgery and now no longer needs glasses and says it's amazing.
