Week 187 Lucky Dip

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
Her work is fab, she makes such happy and pertinent comments and her posts are such fun. If you have never visited her, you don't know what you're missing, so hop on over and see for yourself. 
Here is her creation for this challenge!
What cute birds!

Here is a little digi image which I had coloured quite some time ago with Copics and popped into a drawer... to be used later!!! 
It's so much later I don't remember where the image came from but I thought it suitable for this week's challenge! He's a cutie anyway. If anyone know the source of this image I should be glad to know! The sentiment is computer generated!

For this one it's a very random collection of equipment from my stash 
to make this 'nautical/seaside' themed card:
with Cutting Dies from: Papersmooches, MFT Die-namics & Mama Elephant
Embossing Folder: from Cuttlebug, Wave stencil from Memory Box
Distress inks, sentiment from Uniko Studio and to finish some 
Doodlebug sprinkles and a piece of bakers twine.
 Digi and paper are both from Pink Petticoat, I think the ric-rac makes good waves for the boat
We hope that if you had chance to get to the seaside over the past summer that the weather was kind to you. Here in the UK, the past summer has been one of our better ones on the whole.
Have fun with this one and please do try to visit the DT blogs... we all try to add additional examples for the challenges and we really appreciate your comments!
