Deirderys-day-off for Love to Create Challenge

Hello to everyone and Happy Monday to you all.  
I hope you had a great week-end. 

It's time for a new Challenge at  Love to Create and this week our theme is
 'Punches and dies' and this in my interpretation.

My card features the digi stamp Deirdreys Day Off  from Dr Digi House of Stamps.
Thank you so much for this fun image.

This is quite a sad post for me as this will be my last DT card for Love to Create.
I have really enjoyed being part of this fabulous Team of lovely ladies for the past six months and thank Jackie and Tina for the opportunity.  

I am looking forward to new crafting adventures, whatever these may be.

Please visit us at Love to Create to view the fabulous inspiration provided by my talented Teamies. 

Thank you for your fabulous response to last weeks Challenge.  
 You submitted some stunning creations. 
Also congratulations to the winner and Top Picks.

 Our Sponsor for this week is:

Dr Digi's House of Stamps

List of Materials used to make this card.

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured using my Copic Pens.   I have given Deirdery a glowing tan.  I have also used paper piecing technique for costume, parasol and towel detail.
My new Go Kreate Dies
Designer papers from my stash.
Die cut details are waves, anchor, starfish and leaves and butterflies are a punch.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.

Sending hugs to all from
