Beach huts

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. As some of you know,things have been somewhat difficult for me of late, and I have also been feeling quite unwell. However, I have nearly finished a fairly hefty dose of two different antibiotics, so hope to be painfree soon.
Right, onto this card.
I bought a delightful set of Little Claires polymer stamps when I went to Alexandra Palace in April, I adore spending time at the beach, so this set called out to me to buy it. For this card I repeat stamped the image three times.
Images & background coloured with Promarkers.
I folded the A4 card at various places with mountains and valley folds  (can't for the life of me think what the measurements were now) so that the card would stand on it's short side with the images adhered to the front section to give a 3D effect to the scene.
I stamped the interior of the beach hut seperately and stuck it behind the centre beach hut, after cutting open the doors of the beach hut & folding them back, to give the view of the interior of the beach hut.
Here's the interior of the beach hut.
This card went to a lovely lady, Sandra (aka Annette from DC) for her birthday

Tfl, and for any coments you may care to leave

Hi Noreen, sorry to hear you have been poorly. I hope you are feeling better now?
Love the card, the stamps are absolutely gorgeous and I love how you have used them to make this scene. I love that you can open up the doors and peep inside, how clever!
