Charming @ Diva's

OMG! I have been so missing this last two weeks, I'm sorry to all my friends that I haven't been around but so much is happening I'm barely keeping up with myself! And work is a bit mental with all the glorious weather too. I will explain my absence at a later date when things have settled down.

Just by the skin of my teeth I made the new challenge this week at

Here's my offering, honestly these cards are taking longer and longer to make!
At least two weeks for this one LOL
I took this picture really early in the morning and the colours haven't come up very good.

Oh IDo Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

Well I actually do live beside the seaside beside the sea!! And I really don't appreciate it enough I can assure you. It's like a ghost town in the winter and over flowing with holiday makers in the summer and I'm not sure which is best!!

Anyway enough of that, can you believe it's the 1st of July already? I can't and I would like the first half of my year back please, I'm sure there was stuff I had to do in it!!
But the 1st of July it is and that means a new challenge at


and this month we have a theme of

The Sea

(hence my post title)
I've gone down a whole different route for me and made a CAS card. Christine made one the other week that I just loved so here is my CASED version

 I just love this Tiddly Inks image. I got it last year with a voucher Sarah got me for my birthday and I can't believe it's taken me so long to colour up!
Nothing else needs explaining on this card LOL except I used peel offs! I never thought I would!!!

Head over to the main challenge blog for some gorgeous inspiration and all the details and the prize that the lovely Mandy's are giving away this month from their fabulous online store
