Listening to my tunes

Hope you are all having a lovely Easter. We decided to go the coast today and left our house in lovely sunshine. When we got to the coast there was a sea mist making it rather cool so we ended up walking about with tops zipped up. Hubby had gone in his shorts and taken his jeans, luckily, which he had to change into as soon as we got there. There were more coffees than ice creams being consumed. Moved on down the coast after a while and it was worse. You could hardly see the sea! Had a some lovely fish and chips though and a nice walk around. As soon as we left and came inland to come home the sun was shining. Got home to lovely weather. Oh well at least we got some fresh sea air.

So onto my card which I made yesterday using this cute Pollycraft image and some Doodlebug papers. I used my lovely new MS PATP Cherish punches and Sizzix stars with buttons. The embossing was done with a CB folder.

Great male Marianne, those stars look so great, I'm so glad I brought them. I really like this colour scheme. Shame the weather was not so good down the coast.
