Such a beautiful day!






















Its been such a beautiful day here again that I was inspired to join in Jenny's challenge "Summer Fun".  I love this little beach hut stamp and had a few images already stamped onto some distressed backgrounds.  I have just got the Antique Engravings set from Hero Arts and the little shells fit perfectly with this design.  Then added a little bunting and attached it to an old postcard. 
The wording was the tricky bit so I decided to be brave and do it in my own handwriting, it hasn't turned out too bad!
Only three more days to the school holidays, I am really looking forward to the break as it has been a long tiring term.
Hope you are having a great week.
