Holidays UK and US

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Alphabet Challenges, Veronika has chosen for the letter H - H is for Holidays. We can either create the UK choice for Vacational Holidays or the American choice of Christmas time Holidays. For more details and to see the creations by the design team please visit the blog. 
For my US version, Here is a card made with Crafter's Companion stamps from a Snow Day kit. I used several DI to stamp snowflakes on the background. On the main design I blended with Chipped Sapphire. Promarkers to colour the remainder. 

For the UK version of Holiday I have chosen to make a beach scene for a vacation. For the card I have used Hobby Art stamps - Coastal Create-It Stamps. The card has a curved aperture front, with more cut out work on the card.  I used Aquamarkers to watercolour the design.  I hope you enjoy the challenge and look forward to you taking part in the Alphabet Challenge. Stay well and safe.

  1. I like both of your cards and I appreciate your effort to interprete both versions of Holidays. However, I couldn't decide which one I like better. I'm sure the snowpeople will bring joy to somebody in the upcoming winter season, but I'm absolutely impressed by the detailed beach scenery you've created. The remote bay looks like the perfect place for a summer getaway.

    Hugs, Veronika
