If only ...

If only it was beach weather - the weather is a lot calmer here today, sun and showers, but absolutely freezing, so I thought I'd post a card with a beach hut on it!


I think you could call it 'wishful thinking' - the beach hut stamp is from Stamposaurus and if you pop over to Marianne's blog HERE, she is offering it with some other lovely items as candy.  I have coloured my image with ProMarkers and my papers are 'Ahoy There!' from docrafts along with the sentiment stamp.  I have added some corrugated card stock, some raffia, a button and some little letters from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Get Krafty
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 198 - Torn Paper
Pile It On Challenge 6 - Stripes and/or Dots
Through the Purple Haze Challenge 28 - Anything Goes
