Digital Tuesday challenge

I can't believe it is Tuesday already, where did the weekend go!!?
My youngest Daughter Chiara started school on Thursday and I really thought I would have problems getting her to stay there because she is so shy, but actually she wasn't too bad. On Thursday she went in and sat down with her friends and was fine, then on Friday I did have to go sit with her for a few minutes because she was crying and didn't want me to leave, but she was ok when I left and she really enjoyed herself.
I thought we might have some tears yesterday after her being off for the weekend but she was no trouble at all, just went straight in and sat down with her little friends :)
She is only in for half days till the 6th of septmeber and then she will be in all day and have lunch at school but I am dreading that because she is so shy that she won't eat in front of anyone, so I have no idea how she is going to cope with a whole hall full of other kids eating but her big sister (who is only a year and a half older than her) will be there to look after her so I'm sure she will be fine :)
Rhianna has been great and has been waiting for her at playtime so she can look after her, bless her lol, so I'm sure I have nothing to worry about but she is my baby so I am going to worry anyway lol.

Right onto the card, the challenge at Digital Tuesday this week is "Cool It" (use images with water) and our sponsor is Deedee's Digis who very kindly offered the design team some of her images to use for the challenge.

Sorry about the rubbish pic, I took it late last night when there was no light (again!!).
The image I have used is from Deedee's Digis and is called "Surf's Up", there is also some sentiments that come with the image but I wasn't sure what I would use this card for so I didn't use one.
I coloured the surfer dude with my Promarkers. The green paper is Papermania but I am not sure about the spotty one. The rafia ribbon stuff is some I got from a craft shop in Montrose a while back and the metal embellishments are from Janlynn.com. These are unfortunately discontinued, but of course they still have all their fab stamps over there along with loads of other crafty bits.

I was asked the other day by one of my followers who also follows my challenge blog By The Cute and Girly if I knew anywhere that sold stamps and cardmaking items as well as a good selection of needlework items as like a lot of crafters, she likes to do more than just one kind of crafts one of which is x stitch and the one (and only) place that came to mind was Janlynn. They have a huge selection of rubber stamps (of course the fab Stamps Happen stamps) to satisfy our stamping addiction and also a huge range of needlework items so you can do all your crafty shopping in one place and the customer service is fab too. What more could you want? :)

Right I better get cracking with some cards since I am a bit behind on my DT work with having to spend most of my days this last week at the girls school!
 Oh before I forget, I still have some stamps for sale below, with free postage in the UK, but I will also ship anywhere else.
Thanks for stopping by :)

Hi Lora, that is a super cute card. Love the sketch you used.

So happy to hear that your little girl is doing so good at school. And how great that she has a big sister to look after her. That's fantastic.

It seems as if [url=http://www.activebody.pl]kreatyna[/url] gives your body what it needs. While using M Stak I have increased the number of times at the gym per week AND did triathlon training at an increased level as well! The fatigue of the muscles workout seems to be reduced ...
