Janet and John at the Seaside


I was looking for something seaside-y to use for the CD Sunday challenge Seaside Treasures, and I found this image on a My Craft Studio CD, Setting the Scene.

This picture really reminds me of those old Ladybird books , with children called 'Janet and John' or 'Susan and Peter'.

I coloured them in with Promarkers and added the birds and shell, also from the CD.

As well as CD Sunday, I'd like to enter this for:

  7. Super card and your colouring is fantastic. The title reminds me of Terry Wogan when he did his 'Janet & John' stories.
