Crafty Cardmakers Challenge : Postcard with a seaside theme

Good afternoon! I hope today finds you all well.
If I could be so bold to ask - my 10 year cousin is in the Brisbane Children's hospital at the moment with pneumonia. She now also has an infection in her liver. Please send a prayer that she gets better. Thank you so much xx

Over at Crafty Cardmakers they have a challenge where they would like you to create a postcard (6x4) and incorporate a seaside theme. Well! Easier said than done, I reckon lol!! The only 'seaside' stamp I really have is a cool Santa surfing the waves... Didn't think it would be appropriate. What's the next best thing? The internet! Off I go and search for what I felt would be a really cute postcard to send home.

These two cute tikes are in the beach house having a rest from a busy day of swimming and playing in the sand. I have simply coloured the image with my Stampin' Write markers, added some yellow stickles to the sand and a cute ribbon with little waves.
Now! Do not laugh.... I hand wrote the sentiment because I had nothing that was appropriate lol. Oh well, maybe I got you to giggle xx

Thanks so much for looking xx
