Coastal Getaway

Please click the picture for a better look.
Living in the British Isles you are never too far from the sea,where we live you can be by the sea in half an hour or less. I love North Wales but my favourite beaches and sea side places are in North Yorkshire. I love beach huts they give you such a sense of nostalgia, although I have never owned one, think you need to be a millionaire now, or ever even rented one.
I love these Michael Powell stamps, this is the 3rd one I've bought,pleased to say this one stamps very well, probably due to the small size and me having the perfect sized acrylic block. It is called "coastal getaway". The drawings are so detailed and beautiful all you need is a few dabs of marker pens and you look like an artist yourself.
I've kept my card simple to show the lovely scene off. The papers and sentiment are K&Co ocean seaglass.

A lovely scene and a great card. It reminds me of the holidays we had when I was a child on the Isle of Wight. My parents used to hire a beach hut for the whole fortnight so there was always somewhere to get changed or keep out of the wind and rain. Things haven't changed much in that respect.
