I'm off to the seaside!

Hello there, thanks for popping by today!

Today I'm really excited (again!!) as I'm off to the seadside....I'm visiting Bournemouth with Joe. Today we have been together for five years (where has the time gone??) and we're celebrating by having a couple of days by the sea! I love the seaside....my parents didn't take us abroad when we were little, instead we spent wonderful weeks by various British seasides...including Bournemouth. As soon as I see the sea, no matter the weather....I have to go for a paddle...so fingers crossed the sun shines for me a little, otherwise I'll have very cold toes!!

Anyway, enough babbling....here is my sea inspired card for today....


Now if I'm entirely honest I'm not that happy with this card....I think I've tried to include too much plus the photo is awful!! I love this cute Pollycraft mermaid, I've coloured her with my Promarkers and added some sparkle with my Stickles. I've gone with soft blue papers for the background and added some doodling with my white pen. I've added a computer generated sentiment and some stamped number. The idea behind this was good...it just didn't end up how I imagined!!

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

Tuesday Throwdown - doodling
Passion for Promarkers - under water

Pop by all the blogs mentioned her to see the gorgeous DT cards.

Thanks for popping by today....I'll be back later this week with tales from the seaside!!
