A bit of Nostalgia and......

......just recovering from a little panic attack!! I don't know why, but on my first attempt at loading up this image I found that my pictures, and I mean ALL my pictures had completely disappeared!

After searching all over the place, I eventually found them lurking in the recycle bin, so I restored them.....or so I thought. However, I went back in and...still no sign of them!!! Eventually I did a search, which located them and then, as if by magic, my shortcut reactivated and, so far, everything seems to be OK again.  I put it down to being the 13th  :o(

Anyway, back to my card and the little bit of nostalgia that I promised yesterday. This card was made using the Adorables Summer range from Crafter's Companion, and is completely different to my usual style.

The boy, donkey and little sail boat are all stamped and watercoloured whilst the background is taken from the CD and decoupaged.

This reminds me so much of the good old days when, as a kid, we used to go to the seaside and enjoy all the simple things in life!!

I made this card especially for a challenge this week, which is:

One Stop Craft - Summer Holiday

I would also like to enter the following:

Make it Monday
Papertake - Anything Goes
Crafters Companion - Best Friends

That's me done for today.

Thanks for stopping by.
