Now that summer's here ...

Now that summer's here (well, actually it's raining atm ....) it's time to show a couple of seaside cards that I made a long time ago, but didn't blog, featuring some holographic wavy sea paper, some chunky glittery gold beaches and some foam die cuts, as well as sentiments created on my dymo letratag label maker - everything mounted on to pale blue card blanks.
