Boy on a beach birthday card

You'll notice that I've been tinkering with my blog content and design recently. It looked as though most of my readers were more experienced crafters and so I've stopped giving really detailed instructions and opted to give recipes and a few notes on technique instead. I'd love to know whether you're happy with this format so please drop me a comment. And whether you're a newbie or an experienced crafter, you can always ask questions via comments too.

I've also added some tabs across the top to help you get to offers etc. quickly and easily. This has been a real challenge for me this weekend but I think it's working now.

And on to the crafting - today's card is for the Stamp With Us challenge set yesterday which is a sketch challenge along to this design:

And here's my card based on the sketch:

Stamp set: Summer by the Sea, Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: More Mustard, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
DSP: So Saffron
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Stazon Black
Watercolour Crayons: Soft Subtles
Other: Aquapainter
Non-SU: Nestabilities for circles

Today's card is pretty straightforward to follow from the recipe but just drop me a comment if you do have a question.

Thanks for stopping by.
