Life's a beach

Well it's been a pretty full week of posts this week. Most of them I was able to pre schedule last weekend, while I was still on holiday!!! It was great having had time to play. I probably won't be able to keep up the same work load during the term but I'll do my best.

 I don't often stitch beach themed cards but that's the challenge over at Simply Less is Moore. I made this card a while ago but have never entered it into a challenge, it was perfect so here is my entry

There is a Beach near Cape Town which has a row of these delightful little huts on it. All a different bright colour. I am always reminded of it when I use this pattern.
Pattern:Form-a-lines Holiday Beach Huts
Threads: Brands and colour codes unknown
Card Stock: 160gsm in blue
                   Sand is a recycled calendar
Paper: 80gsm in pale blue
