by the sea

Great news! We have a new Seize the Birthday team remember - the fabulously talented Jules Peddicord! Really excited to have her on the team. Welcome Jules!

My darling friend Nancy has picked 'by the sea' for our Seize the Birthday challenge this week.  I love all things ocean so I was delighted with this challenge.  The original inspiration for this card is this one from my friend Jenn. She was the person who first got me into watercolouring and then gave me a mini lesson on how to get this effect. I've made a few cards like this and always have fun. I've tried doing a shaker with this card but I prefer 'shaker-less'. 

Be sure to swim on over to the blog to check out the spectacular creations from the design team and our Surprise Party Guest, Jenny.

Hope you have a terrific day and a wonderful weekend!
