Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Another Summery Card.

Mornin' all. The sun's out again and I'm still in the seaside mood.I looked in my little file of simple layouts and used one 2 ways to make 2 slightly different cards from one image.The little boat is from Meljens Designs and can be bought from WHIMSY STAMPS.

The spotty papers are by Brenda Pinnick and were in a big thick 12 x12 pad. They sometimes have them on QVC when they have Rosemary Merry on.
The "sand" paper is by DCWV from stack 6 and the blue is another Brenda Pinnick.
I used a Sakura gold gel pen on the swirls and a clear one on the sun. Glitter glue is Hobbycraft own brand, a bargain at £1.99 for quite a large bottle. The cards are both 6"x6".

Entered into My Time To Craft  nautical challenge.
