Isnt it amazing what you can find when you look

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and enjoying better weather than we are having...isn't it amazing that we travel the world to see places and things of beauty and never realise whats on our doorstep...after we went for lunch yesterday we decided because there was a break in the weather we would find somewhere for a walk, just 5 miles from our house is the most amazing stretch of beach with the most incredible views for miles and as we got near the water the town in the distance was just bathed in the largest rainbow ever (did you ever wish you had a camera with you) we were gobsmacked at the awesome beauty of it and have vowed to go back armed with a camera this time so there will be photos I promise you...we really must explore a bit further I think don't you...right enough waffle my card for today is for the Bunny Zoe's Crafts DT and how sweet and cute is this little Pink Cat Studio Betty Bugs
stamp I coloured her with distress and glittered her to bits the lush coloured papers are from the Whiff of Joy paper pad, I'm so pleased I bought this pad every single one of the papers is so yummy and that mix of blue and orange is gorgeous don't you think...the sentiment is one of the Whimsy treasured moments tickets sentiment set and all I needed was a fab ribbon to finish...I'm entering this for the City Crafter Challenge , Ladybug crafts ink challenge and Simon says Stamp challenge...what you up to today, anything crafty or are you heading out, my lovely Phil is marshaling for the North West 200 road race today so I may just head for a mooch around town as you never know what you might find do you, whatever your up to have a fantastic day everyone

What a cute card, and very pretty.
I agree that we often don't know what's on our doorstep. I live within a half hour drive of the Derbyshire Dales and I an just recently discovering some beautiful places, often off the beaten track :o)

Good Morning Mina, Wonderful little card and a cutie of an image. Enjoy your wander around town today. I'm sorting out some of my older craft stuff today to weed out what I don't use anymore. Funny how our hobby grows and changes.
A bit dull here today so a good one for sorting through.
hugs

What a cute card, Mina - I love the sunny colours.

Hope the weather stays dry for Phil and the riders. We used to go to Portrush for the Northwest every year when I was a child/teenager in the 70s and 80s - my Dad used to marshal too!!

Lovely card Mina, what a little sweetie that image is.

We are also lucky to have a beach near us. Two in fact. There is an amazing long beach at Cruden Bay about 5 miles away. There's another small one even nearer, not so nice but really quiet and great for the dogs.

Mooching hum, mooching sounds fun. Maybe one day I'll fly over and hopefully you can show me how to mooch. It sounds lovely.

Your card is another sweetie. Great job on the paper piecing very nice effect.

Have a great rest of the weekend.
