I do like to be beside the seaside ....

Well what an eejit I am ..... scheduled my post (for Wednesday) and forgot to convert it from draft to scheduled post .... sometimes I dispair of myself .... so now it's Friday and I am 2 days late for the Crafty Creations Challenge with my DT entry.

I recently fell in love with the new release from Pink Petticoat, Beach Cottage pattern pack as the colour palate is very delicate and I desperately need to make a sea themed card for my dads upcoming birthday. I have layered some papers cutting different edges using my edgerability dies and used one of the sentiments from Tiny Seashore sentiments ...

Had so much fun making the card, that I used the same papers and made another one with a similar layout but a different sentiment ....

However not sure I will give my dad either of these cards, so will have to print off some more papers and make another set of cards ;)

I am entering my card in to the following challenges:

Cut it up - Summer
Stamping with dragon - on the beach
Cute Card Thursday - by the seaside
Happy Campers - summer
Stamp n Doodle - summer
Tuesday Throwdown - toes in the sand

Now better go and grovel to my fellow Dt buddies for being so late this week.
