Gone To The Beach

We are still in a state of shock over Gary's death , his wife has posted pictures of them together on facebook. It doesn't seem real because I was talking to him last weekend and he was walking their dog Meg.
Life is short so make the most of it!

My card today is inspired by sun sea and sand , well I'm looking out onto a nice sunny day with lovely blue skies so it's kind of fitting.
The stamps are a set from Docraft , I've coloured with promarkers. The paper is by K&Co and the button shells , ocean view by craftime. I've added some flower soft sand for an beach look .

challenges entered :
catch the bug : anything goes
The squirrel and the fox : summer or winter ( had to be summer for me)
cupcake inspiration :     at the beach (see pic above 

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and manage to enjoy some sun. janex

This is a great beach themed card. I like this rectangular shape, and your card has such great details, with the flower soft and the cute sea shell buttons!

It's a cruel disease Jane, I lost my cousin last month he also had it in the head, he was just 32 with young family. And a couple of weeks ago the head at our daughters school with exactly the same at 48.

A beautifully colour coordinated card.
