Beach huts

Hello lovely people,

I didn't manage to come back and share any cards after posting the pics of my new stash...I did play with some of it but then realised that I can't show you the projects yet - oops!

It's Creative Inspirations challenge time and this week we have the theme...

SEASIDE / SUNSHINE / SUMMER HOLIDAYS

Our sponsor for this challenge is Craftie Charlie with an amazing £20 voucher


I was surprised by the lack of Summery stamps in my collection but I stumbled upon this previously unused stamp with some cute beach huts and some suitably seaside-y papers.

I wanted to include a knot on my design so did a little Google search and came up with this...for anyone interested it's called a carrick bend...I just thought it looked nice!

Wow ... clever you with that knot!! And what a super idea to put something nautical alongside these fabulous beach huts... You really do think outside of the box and the result is perfect... I love it!
