Sea Street Octopus

Morning crafters! 

What a glorious morning! Today I have decided to do absolutely NOTHING in a bid to recharge my batteries a little bit. 
Little Hippy has been doing really well getting to school - she even said goodbye without the aid of the teaching assistant this morning -  however I have had to become a bit more relaxed with bedtime to avoid a meltdown (she is really anxious about going to bed), but this means she is asleep not long before me which is really tiring and means I don't get much time to myself these days. 

As the weather is so lovely today we are off to a BBQ later, and judging by the amount of beach tents we have been selling at work this week a lot of people will be hitting the beach! So I decided I should make a beach-related card. I opted to use the sweet little octopus in Sea Street, one of the new stamp sets from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue which was launched on Tuesday.

I've added some tiny pearls for bubbles and used some of the Lost Lagoon wavy paper from our "Moonlight" paper stack to give the illusion of water. Isn't it cute??

I've placed my first order from the new catalogue, just have the agony of waiting now!! There is a link on the left hand side of this page if you'd like to view it online.

Back tomorrow with another project, enjoy the sunshine everyone!
