When I started making this card yesterday – about summer on the beach – the rain was teeming down. We have had a couple of really hot days and then the inevitable happened – we had thunderstorms. Still, we have been lucky as most of the forecasted storms have passed us by – and when it rains we don’t have to water the plants. But it’s time the weather settled down and we actually had a summer – we had better weather when we were in Scotland in April.
I’ve used a digi image from the Digi Stamp Boutique – Beach hut – and coloured it with Promarkers. The papers are Up, Up and Away from Nitwits and the shells came from a shop near by – it’s not a craft shop as such, but I can often find crafty bits and pieces there.
I didn’t think I was going to get this card onto my blog today, as we have been without the internet since this morning. They say we may lose access again as they are apparently working on it – so I’d better get this posted quickly!!
