Hi and welcome a day early for the new challenge from Color Hues.
Today, we have a very special challenge, in conjunction with our normal colour duo, the Color Hues design team along with a few guests, from our sister challenge Seize the Birthday, are participating in a blog hop!
Collectively as a team, we are hopping in memory of our dear friend, fellow card maker, and design team member, Lindsey Martin-Penny, who sadly passed away last year from a rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer.
The purpose of this hop will be to honor Lindsey, celebrate her life and all that she loved, as well as spread the word to raise funds for Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer Research.
How can you help? You can find all the details and the start of the hop at Emily's blog here!
In honor of Lindsey, the team has created a variety of cards using her favorite color combo of Purple and Red.
If you get lost along the way, please return to Emily Leiphart’s blog for the hop list and details.

Good morning. I can't believe a whole fortnight has gone by but as it's time for another challenge at Cardz4Guyz it must have! This time our theme is:-
GOING TO THE BEACH
Now as I said above this sort of caught me on the hop and in order to get something out on time I had a root through my coloured but not used box and came across a beach scene. I must have coloured it many years ago as it was on the wrong side of some glossy photo paper, so well before I found the fab local Alexander paper supplies for their premium white card, perfect for using with Copic markers. It looked just the thing for a masculine beach card and made this card from a section.
Not sure where the image came from as its so long ago, looks a little like a Micheal Powell image from Do Craft but not sure as I don't have that stamp, must have stamped it whilst at a get together with friends before we moved down here over 10 years ago. I'd left the sky un coloured and the sea was a little flat, so a little bit of colouring and a bit of white gel pen for the water and there you have it.
After trimming the panel down I added a simple Uniko greeting and made a frame with small strips of the same blue card. It was only a scrap of card, so I had to cut thin strips and glued them around my image, mitering the corners. A great idea when you've found the right colour but you've not got enough of it for matting!
For more masculine card ideas, please check out the rest of the DT here and then why not join us in the gallery.
