Daring Cardmakers ~ Just Beachy!

It's time for a brand new dare over at the Daring Cardmakers challenge blog and I am also delighted to be linking my card to the current challenge theme over at Crafty Individuals.

This week its the turn of Kathy to set the latest dare. Here is what she has to say..

  Life's a Beach!

I'm hoping that you'll be just as inspired by my challenge - we're staying at the seaside for another week, but this time, instead of working with seaside hues I'd really like your cards to feature some Beach Paraphernalia; deckchairs, parasols, swimwear, flip-flops, buckets and spades, surfboards and sun-cream....the list of possibilities goes on, and on...

Fab dare Kathy! Here is my card..

I love these stamps from Crafty Individuals. I've had them a couple of years now and always love getting to stamp with them. This card is similar to something I made a while ago, these stamps are always so versatile! I love making little scenes with them.

I would also like to link my card to the August monthly challenge.. My Summer Vacation over at the beautiful Inspiration Journal challenge blog. There is tons of summertime inspiration over there and the Design Team have shared their beautiful artwork too! Happy holidays everyone! Long may they continue! 

Thank you for calling. Hope you can play along with the new dare. Many thanks to everyone that joined in with my dare last week! I love this time of the year and it's lovely seeing everyone's beachy/summer creations. ♥

  Have a great weekend, whatever the weather! Gez oxox
