We're on our holidays!!! ........

Happy Thursday ......

I hope you're having a good week.
This is a scheduled post as I'm currently making my way around the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC in Birmingham ..... foodie heaven!
Yes ... hubby and I are across in the UK making a start on our annual family post TT holiday. We loaded the car and took the ferry Wednesday evening ..... and we're now in Birmingham until Saturday when we pick up the kids from the airport, and then we're off to the Norfolk Broads to spend the week on a boat!

But ..... there's still Blog challenges going on .... still DT work to do.
It's time to remind you about this month's STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge.  Remember this is the last one until October.  We're taking a little break over the summer to recharge our creative batteries .... it also gives Shery time to design lots of new STAMPlorations goodies too!

As always the challenge is ....... Anything Goes, and the optional colour twist for June is ......
Masculine Colours

Here's a little inspiration for you ....... remember you don't have to use the Colour Twist, this is just my take on what I think are Masculine Colours

I've used the STAMPlorations 4x4 stamp set Good Books and Coffee, and my ZIG markers to colour the image

I stamped using a brown ink, and the image has been fussy cut before attaching to the card front, using foam pads to add dimension

A few highlights using a gold gel pen ......... and a little smooshed Distress Ink in the background adds a little more interest

and a sentiment from the same stamp set finishes everything off on the front .....

'it's your birthday' comes from Kathryn's Big Wishes ..... I do like it when stamp sets work so well together.

Full challenge details and information on the prizes up for grabs can be found over on the STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge Blog, along with more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.  Why not pop over, take a look and join in the fun.  It's your last chance until October.

Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by ... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm no doubt having a great time ..... good food, drink and time to shop .... what's not to like.

Cheerio until next time ......
