You're groovy!

Ohmigosh, ohmigosh, ohmigosh - it's FRIDAY!  And it's Easter weekend so it's a long weekend for us in the UK!  And I am off work next week too - I can't wait to wake up on Tuesday morning and realise I don't have to travel into London - woo hoo!

Enough excitement, I'm beginning to hyperventilate!  I have a very, very special card today.  I'm sure you all know Lisa Jane of Mess to Magic (how cool is that blog title?!) and her daughter, Beth, has been creating her very own digis and her latest one is a very sweet campervan - they have a bit of a thing for them!  Beth made this super fun card here with it and I was inspired to make a card with her new digi too!  So here it is...


I told you it was sweet!  I was tempted to go with my usual bright bold colours, but I usually see campervans in that duck egg blue colour, hence why I chose these BasicGrey papers.  I used this week's Lora's sketch...

You can buy this cutie here.  Beth and Lisa Jane are also having a competition where you can win some candy to choose the name for this campervan!  Go here with your groovy suggestions!  The competition closes at midnight GMT on Saturday 30 April.  If you would like to spread the news, here is her new badge below...

I am also entering this card into That's Krafty Thursday to just use kraft cardstock.

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Bazzill Bling cream cardstock, BasicGrey Blush
Stamps: Beth's image, My Favorite Things sentiment
Mediums: Copic
Accents: flat backed pearls (from Quixotic Paperie in this section here)
Tools: Nestabilities dies, Xcut flower punch
