Less is More week 187-Lucky Dip

Hi it's me again after only two days, hope I didn't scare you :)
I've not entered any challenges for a while but I saw today's LIM post and it struck a chord, so here I am.
As this is a five Saturday month, we have an extra challenge for you which is always a Lucky Dip, which basically means that we choose whatever we want!!!!!

We have another song theme which this time is... 
I do like to be beside the seaside!
Anything with a reference to the sea or the beach or things nautical will be fine as long as your creation is Clean and Simple!

We are also lucky enough to have a Guest Designer with us this week and I know that this person will be hugely popular with you all... it is the inimitable

I love anything to do with the sea and have made a few cards lately with a nautical theme so I had a look through my stamps and this is what I came up with:


The stamps are freebies from a magazine and and coloured with a water brush and SU Marina Mist and  Soft Saffron. The die is part of an Xcut scenic set.

Well that's all from me for a couple of weeks but I hope to check in now and again if the internet allows:)
