Hit the Beach

Just one of the many cards I am so behind on.  This for my niece and god-daughter Chantelle.  I imagine that she's looking forward to the end of the Australian winter and the time when she can hit the beach.
She's a surfer as is her fiance - at least when life was more leisurely they were.   They're both training to be teachers and working when they're not studying, so not sure they get much of a chance.
This card is based on WMSC106 rotated 180 degrees.  The background was created with the Pic-Nic Patterns plaid builders using Wisteria and French Blue Chalk Inks.
The central image was from the WMS My Island set, as was the sentiment.  The vintage beach chair ticket stamp was from a Crafty Individuals set, and the little sea gull is from a sizzlit die cut.


  1. Great card, love how you've stamped the background & beach scene :)

  2. This is fabulous! Love the die cut bird with the label, such a fab embellishment!

  3. Great card, love the design. I just met your sister this weekend. I am Ross's cousin and they were here in Nova Scotia for a family reunion picnic.
    It was fun to find out that Frances has a sister who loves to make cards as I do.

  4. A really beautiful card, love that plaid background!

  5. Fab card, Kate. Love the colours - quite delicious!

  6. Love how you've used that stamp in pink - it's worked so well, especially with the plaid background! I too am looking forward to the end of the Aussie Winter (although not to surf!)


I'd love to hear from you !!!
