Wetlands at the Beach

I do like to be beside the seaside!  

This is our challenge for LIM this week, anything to do with the seaside or a nautical theme and of course clean and simple. 

I've gone with a Hardwood background in Sahara Sand on a Naturals card base.  I made my beach using Work of Art and So Saffron paired with Soft Sky.  Wetlands is stamped in Marina Mist and my little scene is also mounted onto Marina Mist. 

As it happens I was down at Aberdeen Beach today.  Took my daughter and her chum, my son, father and Jess (our dog).  It was a full car!  Sadly my father can't walk very well so we had a wheelchair for him and my son had his long board.  My daughter and her chum went off to meet another friend and go bowling.  So that left me to push the wheelchair and walk the dog along the esplanade, trying not to tip my father out of the chair by hitting bumps and avoid running over the dog at the same time against a strong wind. When we went for coffee at one of the cafes my back was soaking and not because it was roasty toasty!  However I have to say it was very warm at 5 o'clock when we headed back to the car.  I think all had a fun afternoon!!  

I hope you have had a good weekend too whatever you got up to. xx

Hi Aileen! Long time no sea! (Sorry, you know I couldn't resist that bit of punniness!) Your seaside card is fantastic! Thank you for playing at LIM!

I hope you are doing well. I got a great visual of you wrestling with the wheelchair and the dog and the wind! I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself in the process! Hugs, Darnell

So lovely, Aileen ... the 'driftwood' background is fabulous with the calm beach scene (it's less windy than you had!). Anita :)
