Life's a beach - jump for joy!

Hello there! Weekend again already - I hope you've been enjoying a leisurely day today! Not sure what we're going to be doing today - no plans as yet!

I've got a card to share with you today using a new to me stamp from craftyindividuals - I entered their challenge last month and all entrants receive a voucher code for money off the next order - This card is made using two of the stamps I treated myself to with this code plus my shells from sheena douglass.




I made this by stamping the script stamp directly onto my card then distressing the card edges with black soot distress in. Then I stamped the shells and cut them out and also the panel which I backed with black lace. The ribbon flowers I think were from the ribbon girl. Not sure about the black 'lace'.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  15. Love your black and white card, I always think that colour combo looks stunning. Glad I am not the only one battling with untidy children, all I can say is I am glad I am not the cleaner, I will stick to being the nanny, and the one who sees to all those other things to do with running a house. That over the last 11 years I seem to have taken on board. Have a good weekend Hazel x

  25. Hi Rachel
    Wonderful you received your new stamp - new stamps, is there anything quite as lovely as new stamps LOL.
    The monochromatic palette brings a real sense of the dynamic to this.
