Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

I didn't think I'd be posting again so soon but whilst the World Cup was on TV and England were rising to glory I had time to play.

My lovely friend Pat gave me some new word dies... One was "Beach"
which I used on my previous card and today I'm sharing a creation using another
"Salty Toes and Sandy Kisses" 

This one I'm entering at Double D Challenges

You all know I love anything nautical and right now I'm dreaming of being at the beach with palm trees swaying and the gentle sound of waves lapping on the shore.... STOP!!!

Ok... I'm back on planet earth... And here's my card

Admittedly I couldn't easily post this even though those shells are tiny and anyway, I will be keeping it, probably to frame but I'm sure I'll make a few more for friends

The BG is done with my latest favourite inks... Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans and when I was splattering it with water I had a happy accident... I spilt the water (see, on the bottom) and I love the effect I got

The wreath was made using circle dies (I cut 3 lots to make it thicker) and then I set to work with a glue gun, some tulle, pieces of string, lots of tiny shells and some pearls.
The rope is a little too thick but it's all I had and the little boat I found amongst my stash.
I die cut the words a few times and glued them together to finish off.
It's been on my 'to make list' to do a large heart shaped wreath like this to hang on my wall... one day I'll get around to it...
Well that's it for now
Have a great day
