Beach Chair

Hi,hope you have had a good week.Today's post goes with our weather really well. This card appeals to me as we are off on our family holiday in a couple of weeks and we always do activity hols,skiing,golfing,sailing...I love doing all these things but when my husband asked what I fancied this year,my reply was 'a beach holiday'!
So lucky me,we are hotel based but with lots of day boats to sail and watersports facilities.(Don't do 'doing nothing' very well,so this is great!)
I thought the sentiment went really well with the card as I know sometimes I need to slow down and just 'appreciate what is'.
This is to show the dimension.Click on any picture to enlarge.

I just liked the way the sun was coming through the aperture on this one!

I am entering this in Cricut Cardz challenge#73 - beach theme.

Life's a Beach - card cut at 5.5",chair was covered in white acrylic paint,ink distressed and doodled.
Umbrella - 4" embossed and inked
Ball - 1.5",inked and doodled
Hero arts sentiment stamp
Background paper has ships on it -think it was sandylion
As usual all things inked and lots of 3d foam 
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend,Jayne x


  1. Having seen the card in the flesh, I love the way the background has yachts showing and the clever way the beach chair seems to be standing on the beach, and not attached to the card. Then when you look closely, you see how clever the design is. I love it.

  2. I really love this card!

  3. That is so nice. Great sentiment as well.

  4. This is a wonderful card Jayne! I like the whole beach look without the beach! hahaha
    I hope you have a blast with your fun Holiday coming up! Thanks for playing along with us over at Cricut Cardz! :O)

  5. This is lovely, Jayne! I love the way the umbrella extends from the card - and the adirondack in the window with the blue behind is just a perfect beach look! Super sentiment, too!

  6. super creative! Wish I was in that beach chair right now. It'll be a couple of months up here in Alaska before I am out in that kind of weather, it even snowed this morning!!

  7. Jayne, I just love your card!! I just love all the details and the cute ship paper behind the window. Awesome and very creative. Thanks for sharing and good luck in the challenge!
