More Michael Powell Beach Huts

Yesterday was very pleasant here weather wise,makes a change, so it was out in the garden. Bob,my hubby,is on holiday from work for 2 weeks and lucky him has a great list of jobs to do,starting with sorting the patio flags out. I gave a hand getting the weeds and seedlings out of the cracks and cut the grass back and front. I'm not one of those women who give their orders looking on with arms know the type...heaven forbid.

My card features the same stamp , coastal getaway by Michael Powell, used in my last posted card. Just a hint of pale pastels this time,but livened up with an added sea gull stamp by rubberdubbadoo and a string of bunting. The bunting is cut from a sheet printed from Summer Stories cd by crafters companion.
The strippy paper is from a Joanna Sheen cd called Messy Rabbit, the backing papers in this cd are fab. The sea shell stickers are by create and craft.

Challenges entered :

create a scene : beach scene, sea and sand (my second entry)
cupcake inspirations : picture inspiration

creative card crew : easy as 1 2 3 ( I did : 1 designer paper , 2 stamped images and 3 shells )

anyway better get back to work. enjoy your day. janex
