Celebrate with Pinspirational

Another lovely day here on the sunshine island. I hope the weather is being kind to you all wherever in the world you may be.
Today at Pinspirational Deanne has inspired us with an evening firework display or could it be a meteor shower and a bonfire. This made me dream of balmy Summer evenings and BBQ fun. What about you ?How does this piccie inspire you?
We have been sponsored this week by not one but three very generous digi stores.
Prize: 6 digis
Prize: 3 digis (4 if you used a Stamping Boutique digi)
Prize: 4 digis
I chose to play with a BBQ image from 'The Stamping Boutique' and the strap line 'Celebrate!' is from Paper Pretties.
I used Pergamano colouring pencils and sharpie pens to colour. I left a lot of the background uncoloured as I wanted the BBQ to dominate the scene. The 'Celebrate!' sentiment is digitally coloured using a Microsoft graphics programme. The main card is some jolly, striped card that I bought in an A3 sheet from my local bookshop and I cut it down to size. I know it may sound strange but not a lot of actual craft shops here. Only one!! So we have to source our goodies wherever we can and we find them in some strange places. We found out this week that quilling stuff can be found at 'Public' which, as some of you may know, sells ipads/phones etc. Strange but true!! This is why we love this crazy country.....every day something makes us smile and going out for a drive is always an adventure!!
This card could be a Fathers Day card or with July 4th coming along shortly for our American friends I think this weeks inspiration would also be a July 4th card. What do you think? As you can see I used a bit of red white and blue on my card but it's a Celebration of Fathers Day too.
So hop over to (pin)spirational challenges and see what the rest of my teamies have created. There's some fab inspiration.....I kid you not. Check out Marinas hippie tent!! Fab!!
Don't forget to have fun and leave some love on the way!!

  15. Great fun card. Interested to see you live in Paphos - we've holidayed there for last 3 summers- never seen a craft shop though! Thank you for joining us at The Male Room.

    1. lol Craft shops and Cyprus......well the one we have is in Limassol. We do have one small one near the big new dual carriageway. If you've been before you may know where I mean. Not a lot in it as she enjoys quilting and knitting. There was also 'Infinity'....near St Georges Hotel but she's given up on her card making stock. If you are coming again I run a card making group at the Cypria Marias Monday afternoons I'd love to see you there. Let me you when you are visiting again Sue. W x
