Time to chill ...

It's holiday time for me ... I work in a school office and we closed on Friday for the six week summer holiday!!  So for me it sure is time to chill ... a time to catch up on chores at home but also time to craft without feeling guilty.  My plan is - I have no plan, no timetable and no deadlines!!

This is my first card of the holiday:

I was inspired by the challenge at "Less is More" where the theme is 'Life's a Beach' this combined with the start of my holiday led to this card.  I love deckchairs and empty ones left on the beach always make me smile ... they are like footprints in the sand!

I'm also going to enter the challenge at Addicted to Stamps where the theme is Holiday!

I used:
Distress Inks - Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies
Lawn Fawn Milo's ABC Stamp Set
Simply Homemade Magazine Free Stamp set.
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
