OH! I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE!


Except I'm so fair skinned I burn and blister and peel and get all stiff...not worth it.

Hello Everyone..

A much more relaxed post again today...got up with the alarm this morning went to work and did my best and I'm home for the afternoon before the school run...casserole in the oven bubbling away and looking forward to tea with my Son and his girls...

Have a cute card to share today for a few challenges...

This sweet chubby girl is from Rick St. Dennis..called "Bitsey at the Beach"..



Isn't she a cutie...

Skin and hair coloured with Faber Castell pencils and copics for the rest of her....

Was going to paper piece her bathing suit but the yellows didn't match what I had already coloured...so used the white gel pen for the spots...



hee..hee I think she is super...loads of shells down the side with a Marianne creatables leaf die for seaweed....

Used another new paper pad from Rosies Studio [I know I'm naughty when funds are so tight]...this one is just called 'basics'...and so yummy.




The side view with some scallops shells for added decoration..

Challenges I would like to enter....

Cute Card Thursday   [Beside the Sea]

Moving along with the times   [I do like to be beside the seaside]

Glitter and Sparkle  [Include Yellow]

Just for Fun   [Here Comes Summer]


I think it was Hazel asking about blogger only showing one post and you cant 'view more'..ME TOO..how annoying..


So there we go...hope your weeekend went well and you didn't sleep in..unless you were allowed to...thanks ever so much for stopping by..

I will see you tomorrow..

luv CHRISSYxx

fabulous seaside card - love the shells! I thought it was just me and was confused why I could only see one blog post on blogger - reassuring to know others are having the same problem!

Hi Chrissy,
Such a lovely card and yes what a cuttie she is !!!!
Nice colors you used. Succes with the challenges.
I too have problems with blogger, only one is available at a time. Thought it was something I did wrong. When I write this comment it is 11am in south of france and I read here with you it's already or almost afternoon. And the blogger problems are still going on.
Lots and lots of love from Veerle xxx

Your 'funds are tight' cards look like the taj mahal when it comes to embellishments. Those little shells are PRECIOUS and so perfect for the cutest little image. I have her too and she's adorable; especially on the cards you create.
