Challenge #7 - Summer Fun!

Good morning crafty friends, hope you're all well.
I can't believe we're about to start the 7th challenge.....doesn't time
 fly when you're having fun.....and I sure am having fun! I thank you all
 so much for taking the time to join in with my challenges.
So, this time the theme is going to be......

 Now I've got to be honest......I don't enjoy Summer & especially the awful
heat we've been having......but I do love the seaside & water!
But looking through my stash I really struggled with my make for this
challenge & in the end went with my favourite lots of layers, a stamped
verse & some die cuts!

This  month I'm so chuffed to have the lovely Jane from Onions & Paper
joining me as Guest Designer

I live in Fleet, Hampshire (UK) and am retired from running my own small business. I have a gardening mad husband, two daughters and four grandchildren, all of whom love crafting with me. I've been a crafter since my grandma taught me to crochet when I was a tiny tot, and have worked my way through crochet, hand and machine knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and dressmaking before getting bitten by the papercrafting bug about 20 years ago. Now, of course, I'm a card-carrying addict! 

and here's Jane's make.......

a beautiful beach scene, I wish I could stamp like that....

......and a fabulous fold too
Thanks so much for joining me this month Jane....hope you can join me too!
