Totally Papercrafts #30 Summer Fun

Loving all your 'Rainbow' cards from last week's
Check with the blog to see who the lucky winner was.

This week our host is Mel and she has chosen the theme of
'Summer Fun'

Well,  we haven't seen much sun in Yorkshire recently,
so I wanted to make my card reflect this and
stay away from those bright sunny colours.
So, even though this is more subdued, I hope it still conveys 'Summer Fun'.


To go with my 'Dude' card I made a little 'Surf Shack'
all ready to fill with chocolate goodies! 

My 'Surf Shack' started out life as a tea bag box!
I covered it with Basic Grey DP,
Added a little door with a brad for a handle.
Propped up some surf boards on the front,
and also added some to my computer generated 'Surf Shack' sign, on the top.
I am going to fill my shack with Heroes -
they're  kind of  'guy' chocolates aren't they?

The 'surfer boy' image I used is from this week's sponsor
I paper pieced his clothes and the surf boards,
(Design Paper is Basic Grey, Granola)
and coloured the rest of him with Copics.
Then I finished off with some buttons and a small clip.

Oh these are fantastic! I can't believe that started out a a tea bag box! Your colouring is beautiful! Right going to hunt down that recipe. I shouldn't really as Weight Watchers went out the window with a pecan maple danish earlier. Now i'm so cross with myself that i need to get a chinese takeaway to make myself feel better!
