Summertime at CCCB

Hello and good morning from a wet and windy Merseyside!
It's just a respite we are told ... the hot weather is set to return for a while ...
But over at City Crafter it's still good weather

Our lovely hostess this week is Wendy 
and her chosen theme is 

(Create a project that has something to do with Summer)

I made three postcards

I had some scene paper by Kanban in my stash which was just perfect for these ... I scanned the paper into my computer so I could print it to the scale I wanted and also add a little bit of effect on the first card

This was printed onto canvas paper after I added the vignette effect in iPhoto 
I then stamped, coloured and paper pieced the little boat ... stamped some birds, a sentiment and added a few shells

The second one I printed onto ordinary card stock and stamped a little deckchair which I coloured and paper pieced ... a few embellishments just add a little extra to the postcards

This last one was again printed onto canvas paper ... love that stuff ... and simply stamped with a little embellishing too

The reverse of the postcards looks like this

A little bit of stamping onto kraft coloured card stock and some creativity in photoshop

I've realised that I have a 'thing' for all things beach themed ... Guess you realised that too from my last post ... So I am really looking forward to seeing your summer themed creations
And talking of postcards ... my blog friend Barbara took a trip to Paris recently and sent me this postcard

Completely unexpected ... Thank You Barbara ... it was so sweet of you to think of me!
