Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...



Quick quick, Blogger is working again... fingers crossed this will post this time, have been trying all day! Anyway is just a flying visit to show you my project this month for Crafts Beautiful magazine (August issue 230) which is out now...

The brief was for a set of summery kids-themed cards with a beach/seaside vibe. 

I really enjoyed doing this project as it's a little different to what I usually do (it's got no sewing in it at all!) Plus I got to delve into my box of sequins and jewels which is always fun, and I discovered the delights of glitter card - oh yes I am easily pleased!

Anyway, hope you're having a great week, will be back soon with a granny square update! xxx

Hello Jenny,

I am so pleased that blogger is working again and that we were able to see what you have been up to workwise. I REALLY like your ice-cream! I too have been using sequins recently although mine have been sewn on...

Have a fantastic summery week-end.
