Isn't Sea lovely...


Hello!

Hope you all had a fun weekend, mine was fun too celebrating Hubby's birthday..but our celebrations got cut short as he had to work in the afternoon on his actual birthday - boo!

However it did mean I got to get my serious craft on..

I decided to take a little break from making cards for OWH - click the link, it is a worthy cause, if you have time, send them some stuff...but read the guidelines! During my break I had a nose at some challenges that I might want to enter this week.

I liked the By the Sea theme for the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week...it meant I got to use my new gift from JT - a Kenny K Mermaid stamp!!

The main photo is my entry and it will be going to a new friend...don't want to mention her name, as I think she reads my blog :)

It's slightly fussy, but I think the stamp warrants that. I embossed the whole card (a new first) using my Sizzix fish folder, the scalloped circles were die-cut using Spellbinders dies and the hello stamp is by Hero Arts.

This was a really fun card to make.

  1. Love the mermaid over the fish folder! Genius! Nailed it. I like the double scallop layering as well - I never use my biggest one and you've given me confidence. Will try that soon.
