Oh I do Like To Be Beside The Sea Side - Paper Play DT Card

Hello peeps,
OMG I'm so late with my DT card which should have been uploaded yesterday, my bad. We had an unexpected lodger in the form of a very lively 18 month old golden Labrador, so it was a mad rush putting up the stair gates, moving breakables etc! He was lovely but you couldn't take your eyes off him for a minute as he was always up to no good, I wasn't sorry to wave him off at the vets yesterday and then start putting my house back to normal, replant the bedding plants he'd dug up, fill in all the holes in the garden he'd kindly dug for me, and then have a blooming good rest lol.

Today I have my
DT card to share, this weeks challenge was set by little old me which is -

We have a lovely new teamie to welcome this week, I'm sure you all know her, it's the lovely Sharon ( Gramma's House Of Cards), a big warm welcome hunny
Images - hAnglar, Magnolia (background scene), Whiff Of Joy (sandcastle), & Whimsy (postcard)
Medium - distressed inks
Paper - Magnolia
Flowers - Kort & Godt & stash
Charm - Bunny Zoe's
Butterfly - Magnolia Doo Hickey
I've added a little of the compulsory sparkle to make the sunset sparkle on the sea, and the postmark sentiment is from Whimsy

I'm entering my card is the following challenges -
Cutie Sunday - fab sketch, Make It Colourful - colouring with blues, Aly's - all about kids, Cupcake Inspirations - inspirational piccy (bright colours), Kreative Stamp Friends - birthday, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamp With Fun - flowers & pearls, Lollipop & MAWTT - inspired by a song (I do like to be beside the seaside), Stamps & Fun - holidays, Top Tip Tuesday - open, A Spoon Full Of Sugar - splish splash, Anything Goes - Summer, For Fun - Summer Fun, Aud's Sentiments - Summer

I managed to have another mishap with my shoulder today and couldn't get it back it joint, but on the plus side I'm nicely chilled out on painkillers, have no pain at all which is wonderful, and feel like I'm just floating around, mmmmmm lol.
Thanks for stopping by
