For my card this week I used the lovely little image
On The Beach

We were on the beach last week on our family break, the weather wasn't great but it didnt stop my hubby or the girls from throwing on their wetsuits & body boarding, to cold for me tho, I sat on the beach & read a book ;)

no wetsuits in this pic & the water was cold

Thanks for stopping by, can't wait to see your creations this week :)


  1. It does looke mighty cold. We use to love close to the beach and it was always cold. It is always a beautiful place to go and relax, though. I love the ocean. Your card is adorable. i really love the papers you have used. They are a blend of water and sand to me. Very effective combination and beautiful card! Have a wonderful week Genebeive.
    Hugs, Nancy

  2. Hello Genevieve, Your card is adorably sweet. Love the image and sweet colors.Your star brads are so sweet. It does look so cold in that pic. Thanks so much for posting!!! Have a sweet week. HUGS Arlana

  3. Hi Genevieve, thanks for a wonderful posting this week over at SSW. Love your card isn't this a wonderful image and I just love your colour you've used.
    OMG that water looks cold and it's summer over there our water looks warmer even in the middle of winter. On the 5th June Ryan my youngest swam at our beach house in the middle of winter with no wetsuit on the water was quite warm he said not for me it has to be between 24-27 C like bath water. Glad you had a relaxing break and I'm sorry it wasn't hot and sunny for you but at least you had your family around to relax with which is so special. Take care and have a great weekend.

  4. Great job with this sweet image! I love how you colored her in and the touch of glitter you added to the water! What a fun pic of your children, they look like they're having so much fun!

    Peace & Luv,

  5. I would have been right beside you Genevieve wrapped up in a blanket with a good book! Looks like the girls were have fun though, no matter how cold the water!!

    Your card is adorable! Such a sweet image, and I love her in her red with green polka dotted swim suit!!! Love the touch of sparkle too!!


  6. Sorry that the weather didn't cooperate...but I would rather be reading the book at any rate, not much of a swimmer!At least you all got a break and that is what counts. Thanks for the post this week and tfs your lovely the colors you've used for her bathing suit, I would love that for me. Have a good week...

  7. Hi Genevieve, oh I am loving your sweet card this week!! Looks like a picture postcard with your beautiful coloring. The twine is the perfect touch for that added pop to this sketch!! Looks like your girls were having a blast, by me I would be right there with you on the sand staying dry! Have a great weekend!

  8. Very sweet card and image. Just lovely
    Hugs Julie P

  9. This is adorable Genevieve. I just love this image and am amazed at how different it looks from your card to Jeannie's and to mine. How fun is that? Beautifully colored to match your fun papers. Great card.

    Love your picture of the girls at the beach.
