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

.....I hope you're all singing along now!

Morning All,

I hope you are well and have had a lovely week! This week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin is "By the Sea/Ocean" - what a fab challenge to get creative with!

I decided to make a personal card this week....creating a seaside gatefold card with some fab Pollycraft images.

Here is the outside....

And here is the inside....
Very nice I hear you say...but how is it a personal card?? Well....Joe and I had our first date on the 1st August six years ago, and each year we take the same week off work the beginning we always used to go surfing in Newquay during this week. Unfortunately this year we're not in Newquay, we're at home instead....but I thought I would still have us surfing - even if its only on a card (not that I am saying that those cute characters look anything like Joe or I!!!)

Pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see how the other members of Team Abi have used the theme on their cards! While you're there you can check out our fab sponsors this week;

I'd also like to enter this card at:

Passion for Promarkers - Summertime Blues (use blue and one other colour)
Crafty Sentiments - Summer Holiday
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Totally Papercrafts - inspired by a song - "oh I do like to be beside the seaside"
Di's Digi Designs - stitching - faux or real (faux stitching around the sun!)

Thanks for popping by today, its lovely to see you!
