All in a days shopping

We headed back separately from St Pete's this morning and Steve and I made a stop at Ellenton Outlet Mall, where we did a little bit of shopping including 3 pairs of trainers, flip flops, T-shirts, vest tops and even a new jumper - yes in 97 degrees Fahrenheit I bought a new jumper!
We then headed across to Anna Maria Island, which is really chilled out.  We got to see the Sunshine Skyway Bridge from across the bay.

Then it was time to eat again and I decided to take it easy today and have a small but perfectly formed and rather delicious prawn salad.

So then it was back to Ian's for more chilling out and my latest vice - White Zinfandel!!
Whilst the others watched a film, I watched from the kitchen table surrounded by my crafting supplies and made a couple of cards.  This first one was inspired by challenges at:
Totally Gorjuss - aqua
Twisted sketches - sketch #20, fabric - I've used felt flowers for the fabric and turned the sketch 90 degrees
CRAFT - photo inspiration - it was the colours that inspired me
I'm still surprised I've managed to walk away from this card and not add more to it!

Next is a card inspired by challenges at:
One Stop Craft - Oriental Delights
CPS - Sketch #180
I was lucky that the Lush pad from Kaiser had some Oriental designs in or I'd have been scuppered.

Brining up the rear is this card inspired by challenges at:
2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan's Sketch #59
Stamp Something - Fairytale Somethings - my Fairytale is Chicken Licken
This uses some more of my Papertrey Ink stash and stamps.

Goodnight and sleep tight.
