"besides the seaside "

With all the hot weather we have been having , dull today after some rain though , it would be lovely to take a dip in the sea !
When I saw the cute flip flop die from taylored expression , I just had to buy it , then all the ideas for beachy/summer cards came to mind . I searched through my stamp collection and could not find any nautical /beach stamps....I'm sure I've got some somewhere I headed to Pink petticoat and found the perfect digis .
I cut the flip flops from funky foam and coloured the beach huts with promarkers.

hips and salad ...yum whilst sat in the lovely beer garden, we also visited my favourite craft shop.... perfect
...thanks Mum x
