Summer fun

I was wanting to enter Fashionable stamping challenge but was struggling to find anything suitable, I had two stamps I could have used but both had already appeared in the challenge, I have a stamp of a little boy playing football, didn't appeal to me, then I remembered this stamp, its not mine but its been in residence in my house for a while! I do love these two off for a paddle. Stamped on a piece of DP, restamped, coloured and cut out, added a bit of frantage for sand, some birds from inkylicious and a seahorse from an Oxford impressions set. The wording is computer generated and is part of a little poem from a Childs Garden Of Verse.
