Down at the beach CAS style.

Oh my I'm loving CAS cards just now.  Just thought I'd share that!
Thanks for all your lovely comments ladies.  I'm glad you liked my nail varnish. 
It's funny I have been thinking of stamps, quite often I make a bespoke card needing an image and can't get it.  Something definitely to think about. 
Is there anything you wish you could get and can't, an image or maybe a sentiment, I'd love to know?

Last night it was Harbour night in the village and what a beautiful night it was too.  The band playing, food and drink flowing, good company and the kids in wet suits dooking in the sea.  I didn't want to come home!  (Which I was surprised at after an early start at work). 
The boys also took the pup down yesterday during the day for the pet competition.  Holly didn't win anything but we think she is cute.  This was followed by watching the Skate park competition.

Tonight it is, as my kids call it....Bingo by jingo!  The men go off to the golf club for an adults quiz and the ladies take the kids to the village marque for the Tombola night.  Now I'm not normally a bingo kind of girl but it can be quite an exciting evening especially if you get down to one number!!  (I've lead a sheltered life!)
As for today there is a baby competition, story time, golf and a coffee morning.  We're saving ourselves for tonight and I'm catching up on a few jobs and card requests.

Today I have another CAS card....catching up on some card stock for my local shop.  This range are all clean and simple and nothing like my demonstration cards. 

This is my Hopeman hutty!
The hut is by Hobby craft, I have a "thing" for beach hut stamps.  The sun and cloud are by Sugar Nellie.  The papers are Docrafts Ahoy there.

Enjoy your Thursday folks.  x

Erika, firstly thank you for your lovely comment about my pendants or should I say our pendants as Patricia makes them to. Now I did wonder where in the north east you lived and now I know, but would you believe it our great great grand father on our mums side came from there.
Sounds wonderful, we lived by the sea for 15years and I still miss it.
Any way I love your card.

Hi Erika, love your card, great image. Sounds as if you all had a great time yesterday, got to make the most of it with this gorgeous weather. Normally during school hols it jus pours, marvellous that the children are having the great weather.

What I would like to see, cos I never have, is stamps digi or otherwise with mountains, climbers, canoing, and now canyoning, although that one would be difficult. Little Claire do an outdoor stamp set which I've used a lot, but I'd love to find something else, all the guys have had this stamp in various designs.
Have another great day, Kate x

Good afternoon Erika,
Love your "Hopeman Hutty" making a beautiful summer card.
I notice my sister Hazel got in first telling you our relatives came from Hopeman. Talk about small word ....!!
Have a Great Day

Loving your Hopeman hutty Erika. Lovely summery card. Long time since I was last in Hopeman. My parents used to love holidays on the Moray coast. Cullen was their favourite place. Maybe something to do with my Dad's love of ice cream!
