Jenny at the Beach

We are still enjoying the summer here- the weather is not great but it's lovely to still have our sons off school for another couple of weeks.
This week's card fits a few different challenges. I've used the colours from the Colour Create challenge with the layout from Sketch Saturday and combined this with the theme of "summer" from The Pink Elephant challenge.
This is "Jenny at the beach" which I designed for my new stamp collection and you can find details of how to buy this stamp (or any of the others) at the side of my blog.

The Tall Ships were in Belfast last week and we spent as much time there as work would permit!! I was in hospital having my first son the last time they were here(18 years ago) so I didn't want to miss them this time!
Tall Ships on Belfast Lough

The Bounty from Pirates of the Carribean.

You can see the cranes of Harland and Wolff where the Titanic was built in the background.
