Bloomin' Beaches

Good morning all!
If you're here on the Crafting Cafe blog hop, welcome to my crafty little place.
I'll hopefully get round all the blogs this morning while enjoying my coffee!

If it's your first visit feel free to have a good old snoop about!
If you're a regular visitor, hello again & welcome back, its always good to see you!
So, now on to my post!

Here's a heads up for you all!
La Pashe Ltd
La Pashe

Create & Craft
are on Create & Craft TV today!
Freeview 36, Sky 674, Virgin 748 & Free Sat 813
10.00am & 4.00pm

They are bringing us a new range of "Wrinklies at The Movies "
& some female versions of "The Grumps"
Here's one of the cards I've made as a sample for the show!

This is Bloomin' Beaches!
You'd think a day at the beach would be fun but just look at the weather!
A real Birthday Treat NOT! Poor Thing!
The Decoupage is easy to cut out & I've layered it with pinflair glue.
I've used an A5 card blank & the DP I have used is from La Pashe too.
I distressed the edges of the DP & the image with a pair of serrated scissors
then  inked with liquid chalk.

I've added some Anita's 3d Clear Gloss to the raindrops & her glasses.

I've wrapped some beaded twine around the & added a piece of 
burlap/hessian from my stash. 
The little fish charm just landed where it is so I attached that too!
The shells are die cut with Marianne Creatables & also inked with liquid chalk!
I hope you catch the show!
Thanks for popping in!
