SUO Challenges Guest Designer Post

A couple of weeks ago I was invited by Robin Messenheimer to be a guest designer for the SUO Challenges blog and as you all know I love my challenges, so I jumped at the chance.

Our theme for this week's challenge is Bright Sunny Days and I was instantly drawn to the idea of the beach.

It's a thing in Peterborough, where I live, that as soon as the sun shines, everyone heads down the coast for about an hour's drive to Hunstanton, or Sunny Hunny as it affectionately called. I spent many a weekend camping down there when I was a child and my parents have even gone and bought a static caravan right next to the pier and spend most of their free time there (I might have to borrow it next week while I'm on half term if I get the chance!). So what did I do? I made a beach card, although it's more of a Hawaiian beach than a Hunstanton beach....

So why don't you head over to SUO Challenges and check out the challenge?!


Thanks to Robin and all the girls on the SUO DT for inviting me for their first ever Guest Designer challenge.


  1. Love this card and I have that stamp set somewhere! Must pull it back out!

  2. Yes, this set definitely makes a great summer card. Love the way you created the beach scene.

  3. Very tropical! Wonderful landscape and sky! Great working with you as guest designers at SUO Challenges!

  4. What a pretty beach scene, Vannessa! It makes me want to go to the beach. Great sponging!

  5. Love this tropical look! I miss this set. Thanks for guest designing for SUO Challenges.

  6. I'm a beachy kinda girl down to the core! Great beachy theme & calming vibe! Thanks for guest designing at SUO Challenges! :)
