MAWTT - I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside!

Hello... I hope you are all doing well today...
if not then I'm sending huge hugs and I hope things improve for you very soon.

it's Thursday and the turn of Team B over at 

and our lovely Claire is hosting a fab theme of...

'I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside'

it doesn't have to be a card... as long as your creation is to do with the Seaside!! :-))

I was really chuffed when this theme came up..... I knew right away this image would be perfect! My lovely blogging friend Laurie bought me this stamp ages ago... and I've never got around to using it until now! it's such a fab image!!!

Image: Girlfriends by Art Impressions
Papers and Ribbon Element: Nitwits - Tour of London
Sentiment: made on computer using Tag from the Nitwit Pack.

 I have to say I was smiling away to myself as I coloured it!! I was also wondering which one is me! I think probably the one second from right as she is having a good old natter by the looks of it...  and my hair goes a bit very wild with the sea air... so I have to wear a bandana!! but which one would you be? Lol

 I've coloured the image with Copics and used Star Dust Stickles on the drinks to make them look fizzy!

I hope you can hop on over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's wonderful creations this week... lots of inspiration for you!!

I'm sorry I haven't been to visit many of your blogs this last week. I have a flu-type bug and I'm feeling totally pooped! that's putting it politely!! Lol all the family have had it - thought we weren't supposed to get viruses like this in Summer!??  Thankfully this post was all done in draft weeks ago! :-)

I've been having a lot of trouble with Mr Blogger in past few days.... lots of error messages when I'm posting and the commenting boxes taking forever to load every time... hopefully it will improve in few days.

I can't believe how time is flying by... when does Wimbledon begin? must be soon. I'm not keen on football, so looking forward to the tennis!
Thank you for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate them and I will catch up with you all very soon. 
Lots of love and hugs!

What a fantastic fun image Sue you've coloured it beautifully, love the sparkle on the drinks. The card screams a British summers day at the beach.It reminds me of holidays when I was young, we had one on the coast where gran lived and one in the country with granny.
Sorry to read that you have been unwell hope you feel better now.

Great card Sue, made me chuckle it's fab.I think I'd have to say I would be the one in the hat, hide my lack of hair at the mo.
Hope you feel better soon.

What a gorgeous fun image. Fab colouring and detail. I would be the third one from the right, she looks like she has just come along for the fun and is letting it all hung out. Lol!!!

Sorry you have been poorly, hope you get some energy back soon.

I am having terrible trouble with blogger too.


Hazel said...

What a great card Sue, the Great British Summer, I'd have to be first on the left with the martini lol.
I do love this stamp, I have it too and now I want to get mine out to play again - just not anytime to play at all, I always seem to have to be somewhere!!
Hope you're feeling better soon, the good weather will help when it settles down!! I will be watching England tonight but I love Wimbledon too.
Big hugs Laurie xx

I'm sorry you have not been well, I hope you are better now - Wimbledon started today, so at least you have something good to watch on the TV now.

Totally awesome Sue - your colouring is amazing :o)
Not sure which one is me - could be any of them lol!!!
Sorry to take so long to get round to see you - had a mad week getting ready for the school summer fayre at the weekend and I have to say that I have been hooked on the football - no choice with a house full of males I guess!!!
Hope you are starting to feel better now hun.
