Beach Bum Mum!

Sometimes it's just nice to make a card, not for an order or for a DT, but just because you like an image and want to!

After taking much crafty time off this summer, I wanted to make this card just for fun, the image is from Meljens Designs and is available here.

Papers are craft companion and the shells mostly off the local beach, although there is one fancy one which must have been bought.

I've been looking at all your lovely cards and picture but first things first and HUGE congratulations to Colin, I'm so happy all that time in the cupboard wasn't wasted LOL you must be very proud and rightly so Mrs!

Hi Janice,
This is such a cute image :) It made me giggle when I saw it lol. Love the blue. Great idea on adding the shells..very effective :)

I agree with you it is nice to make a card just because something inspires us, sometimes for me it's an image, a sketch or just seeing someone else's gorgeous work.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog & leaving such kind words. Sorry to hear that you are a little busy for our DT Call but hope you will enter one day in the future :)
Big hugs, Lisa.
