A day at the beach



Happy Monday morning to you all, time to share my Prickly Pear and Nicecrane DT creations.

As most know I am not one for cute images and cards, comes of not being a natural when it comes to colouring in I think, but this sweet little girl does rather appeal and teamed up nicely with some shells I bought back from Majorca, Graphic 45 DP, sky and sun using Pan Pastels and bunting cut on the Cricut.




Another criss cross card........I feel there is probably a proper name for this style but not sure what it actually is, so criss cross for now.

The image is from the Brisley Playing Children design sheet, this little girls reminds me of a photo of me as a child complete with plaited hair.

As with so many Nicecrane designs this one matches perfectly with Graphic 45 DP, this one is from the Botanical Tea collection.

Have a good Monday everyone.
