Another Seaside scene ...

Hello lovely friends and visitors
I hope your weekend is going well
Thank you for the lovely comments on my recent creations
You are all very kind and I really do appreciate you

I've cards created especially for some of the current challenges and I’ve not blogged them yet – arrggh!  So I have multiple posts for the next couple days.  Anyways here is what I want to share with you right now …

A DL card for a change! 
I am happy with the stamping and watercolouring 
Such sweet embellishments  
I love this card and it is going into our birthday box
A final look

I used the same set stamp as I did on this card.  However I did not follow a sketch.  The layout is my own which normally means not too fussy with a little embellishing lol!
Again this watercolour panel took time and effort to achieve the look.  However I am very happy with the final result.  I will keep practicing and will be using this colouring technique more in the future.

I have another card I finished and the blog post is done too.  So I will be back later on tonight with a second Saturday post but we need to have some dinner before I do that lol!  And the F1 Highlights of the Qualifying is on the BBC right now so neither of us is in a hurry to get to the kitchen.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment
I really do appreciate it Thank You
I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week
