Beside the sea

I thought I would enter Fashionable Stamping challenge which is "Seaside", it gave me a chance to get out some older stamps and have  play with them.  The Top card is all Crafty Individual stamps while the second one is a very old Stamps Happen stamp, they made such beautiful stamps I was very sad when they went out of production.

  1. Great cards with the CI stamps Joan, they really are timeless aren't they.

  2. Two fabulous card Joan and I especially like the first one. The image of the girls splashing in the sea is one of my all time favourite CI images, and I bought this set after seeing one of your cards that you'd posted on your blog previously. I think it captures the essence of youth, and of carefree summer days. You've also just reminded me that I have a 'Stamps Happen' stamp that I haven't used in ages x

  3. Two lovely cards Joan, I've always loved the CI image on the first one and don't know why I don't have it! The second is a lovely scene and your colours make it look very peaceful.
    Thanks for sharing at Fashionable Stamping.

  6. Such bright, sunny cards, Joan - the top one is so English and evokes lots of memory but the second is so delicate and subtle. I loved Stamps Happen, too, they were so emotional!
