At The Seaside


I have been wanting this child on the beach stamp for about two years after someone sent me an atc with it on.  Last Tuesday it arrived in the post, my lovely Sister had found it and sent it to me as a little surprise.
I thought it went perfectly with this little poem from R.L Stevenson. The poem is in a Childs Garden Of Verse book which I got as a Sunday School prize in 1949! as you can image it is now rather battered and worn but I have always loved the book.  I am really digging the old stuff out now, the background stamp at the bottom of the card is from a company called Embossing Arts and dated 1993, wonder if they are still around ? This is a belated entry for Tuesday Taggers challenge.
