Hello my friends! Finally it's July. It's my favorite month of the year!
It's Monday, and like any other Monday, it's time for a new challenge over the Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover challenge blog. This week theme is Vacation

Sentiment: Congratulations
I made this card red-blue and white in honor of my American friends. It's a bit early, but 'cause I'm without Internet connection on July 4th, I'll say it now: Happy Independence Day! We celebrate 4th of July every year :) It's my moms Birthday. This year she decided that she wants to get a year older in Sweden. So that's where we are going. We take a short cruise over the Baltic Sea.

I used Jack Fairy on my card. It is so fun to build stone towers on the beach. I thought he is suitable on vacation theme  Birthday card. He is colored with pro- and flexmarkers. I added some stickers to his wings. Pattern papers are all made by me. I also added digital stitching's to them. Stars are cut out with scissors and I covered them with Glossy Accents. Very simple card.

Materials used:
Stamps: Paper Makeup Stamps - Jack Fairy

Coloring: Promarkers, Flexmarkers

Inks: TH distress ink - Tea Dye
Papers: Pattern papers are my designed; CraftworksCard card base; Kraf paper from my stash

  5. Eeret, what a delightful patriotic card - love the colors of course, but your shading in the sand, and the little boy is beautiful. I find it difficult to shade using darker colors - so my heart especially admires the skill in others. I like the way your card feels not only patriotic, but summery - with the horizontal stripes - I ESPECIALLY like the stripes on a diagonal in the die cut stars. I wanted to e-mail you about your recent message on my blog, but there was no return address, and I dont' see one here -- TOTALLY CRACKED ME UP when you said, "Your smashed rosett is awesome. I love how it looks. I'd like to make it too but rolling it over with a chair seems very time consuming" -- thanks for always bringing a smile to my face in your remarks haha Enjoy a wonderful cruise across the Baltic, and happy birthday to your mom! Have a lovely week, Eret! hugs, de
