Happy Sunday

Crumbs ... what an 'eck of a lot of rain we had overnight and today.  So much for watering the garden it's like a swamp! My daughter has gone off to a festival in Lytham with her friend today kitted out with wellies. You just wouldn't believe it with all the sunshine we've had.

The sunny weather of last week plus my up-coming holiday has influenced my card today.  I can safely say I'm a Pink Petticoat addict and love all the products.  The latest collection is Beach Cottage and I hope Liz doesn't mind me stealing her boat idea...then again she did put a tutorial on her blog which I've been dying to have a go at.

It's snippets galore so that's where I'm heading with this card ... over to Pixies Snippets Playground plus the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  Armed with my Beach Cottage papers and seeing the banners on the sketch it had to be nautical this week.

Sketch which I've flipped and switched a little:

Card Recipe:

Image, Papers & Sentiment: All Pink Petticoat (Beach Cottage Collection)
Gems plus cocktail stick from my stash
Dies used: MFT Die-namics Party Banners
Sizzix Triangles
Plus a dribble of glamour dust on the crest of the waves - you know me ... can't resist a bit of dazzle!
