By The Seaside

Happy Friday !

And because it's Friday again I'm linking up with Erika on her blog
Snappy Crafts where she invites us to share an old craft project.

This card was made a very long time ago with a Woodware set of stamps.

I used a glitter card.  I painted stripes of colour onto white card with a big brush and stamped on top adding a little glitter onto the 'sea'.

The black strip at the side was supposed to be the flagpole for the happy birthday flag.  I did smudge the Birthday on purpose  - goodness knows why.

As I've used lots of scraps I'm going to take this along to the Snippets Playground-  Week215

A super oldie Barb, I have a fondness of anything by the sea related, guess it's because we live so near to the beach, if only we had beach weather to match!
I love you wee image and the cute little sandcastle. Thanks for joining me today sharing and oldie and have a super crafty weekend.

Hugs Erika. x

That really is a lovely card, I love the tone of it as well - summer seems a long way off at the moment!

Such a cute card! It's the middle of winter so this seaside scene really appeals to me right now! Again I'm amazed that you took photos of your old cards before you mailed them - you're awesome!
