Off to the Beach

Hi everyone, I had a surprise today, a phone call from a friend I haven't seen for about 12 months or a bit more. She was free today and called to see if she could pop around to visit. I had our car here being serviced by a family friend who owns his own mobile mechanic business so was stranded at home anyway. She came and stayed for a coffee and a chat and then when the mechanic had finished with my car, we went and had lunch at a cafe with a promise to catch up again soon and also to arrange a get together with a couple of other friends who we both haven't seen for a while.
The tour down under race is starting on the road at the top of our street so there were road closures today and a street party and tomorrow the bikes come through.
Well it is rather late so I am going to have to tweak my post to come in before midnight so better get on with it,
Basecard is SU Wisteria Wonder and then I made 3 panels using SU Wild Wasabi and some DP scraps that I think are My Mind's Eye papers. I made a white nestie diecut and adhered it to some of the Wisteria and trimmed around it. The sentiment is called All Occasions from Clear Expressions by Hampton Art and was inked in Choc Chip. I popped the nestie up with foam dots and stuck this cute image from Pollycrafts (a recent purchase) and I have coloured her with Copic Markers.
I would like to enter this into the following;
