She sells seashells by the seashore!

OK, I think this might be my most favourite Polkadoodles' image yet.  This beauty is called "Shannon" and you can find her on the Polkadoodles online store here.  She is so sweet, and reminds me of my childhood in British Columbia, Canada.  We would spend a couple weeks each summer close to the shore of the Pacific Ocean, sometimes even on an island.  What fond memories I have of those summers:  my sister and I playing at low tide, and finding many beautiful shells and sand dollars.  Great times, great times.

Shannon was a joy to color, and she would be great practice for those learning to color clothing...that long flowing dress was so much fun.  Thank you Nikky, for bringing back some awesome memories :)

I added some seaglass and sand colored flocking powder to this card to add to its authenticity, and the ribbon, fibre, pearls and stamps are from my stash.
