cant beat a bit of bling at the seaside...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...we had a lovely day yesterday, the sun was actually shining (I know incredible eh lol) it wasn't hot but it was at least shining...so we made ourselves a lovely picnic and headed for the beach, it was only about 15degrees but would you believe there were people swimming and surfing...bbbbbrrrrr we British are made of hardy stuff aren't we...after a lovely lunch we went for a walk along the beach then back to the car and headed to a fab garden centre, well it used ot be a fantastic place for plants but I don't think business is very good as a lot of their plants looked very old and pot bound, in fact there was quite a lot I would have probably put in the bin, sign of the times I guess, its such a shame though that great business's are going to pot like this isn't it...then we headed home to make dinner for the family, brilliant day but all that fresh air was very tiring, I was asleep by 10.30 last night lol...right now onto my card for today and I used another beauty from Mo's Digital Pencil isn't she so so cute and I love her dolly, shes called Waiting for the Parade
I coloured her with distress inks and couldn't resist making a little windmill from the lush My Minds Eye Miss Caroline-Howdy Doody 6x6 paper pad papers I used...I finished with a few buttons and put one in the middle of the windmill...the lush sketch is from the Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge and I'm also entering it for the Saturday Challenge...we are heading to Belfast today not sure what we are doing when we get there but I'm sure we will find something lol...

oh btw while we were at the beach I took a photo of my new bling to show you...simple but beautiful isn't it, I love it...yes they are my real nails and yes they are always painted red, I have a thing for red nails...right that's me for today, whatever your up to today I hope you have a brilliant time

Hi Mina

Firstly ..... FABULOUS card... love those colours...

Secondly - FABULOUS nails too... and fabulous ring!!

And lastly... glad you had a FABULOUS day.... the garden centre does sound tired.... our local one puts anything that looks a little past it in a bargain corner... we've picked up some fabulous shrubs from there.. they only need a little TLC.... LOL!

And the sun shone here too yesterday... we went into Harrogate with my daughter and had lunch at Betty's Tea Rooms...... mmmmmmmmm!
