Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

Hello there, and welcome to my new followers.......WelshPixels and Christine Bedford, thank you both for joining me.

I've entered a couple of my cards in this month's challenge over at Crafty Individuals. I didn't really feel that my first card met the criteria of CAS but I was happy enough with my second card which featured the Sweet Robin Redbreast.  I didn't have any intentions of entering a third card until yesterday when I received a photograph from my Son. The photograph is a picture of our little Grandson enjoying his first time at the seaside.  As soon as I saw the photo, it reminded me so much of the stamp that I won a few weeks ago from Crafty Individuals called Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses.  

Here's the card that I've made, inspired by our Grandson's first time at the seaside :)

Here's the photo of our little Cherub seeing the sea for the first time :)

Wishing you all a happy weekend, Sandra x

What a lovely photo of your dear little grandson and so lovely that they took a photo to capture the moment. It looks as if it should be in a magazine.

Your card is beautiful Sandra and really portrays the photo so well. Barbxx

What a wonderful card reflecting the photo of your grandson Sandra, the sea coming into the sand is beautifully done. And would you believe I actually ordered that stamp earlier this week.

Hi Sandra,
what a very superb card and wonderfully created, inked and stamped.
That waters edge is superb and the sand looks so inviting.
I wonder what little one thought about the sea.
He looks very interested I must admit.
I bet he was facinated with it.
Have a very lovely weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
