Mermaid Tilda

Good afternoon everyone. Just a quick visit today. There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day at the moment but I will endeavour to try and be a bit more conscientious I promise!!!!!!!!!

Todays post is for the TOMIC challenge, Simply Magnolia and the Just Magnolia challenge.

Right to the card. I have made and easel card using 2 square scalloped cards from Craftwork cards. The mermaid Tilda I coloured about a month ago and then left her languishing in a box (thats really bad isnt it?).
The shell at the top of the card was once a gold button. I just snipped of the loop and glued it on. A quick brush of picket fence and I think it worked quite well.

Why is it so hard to photography an easel card?

I have added some fantasy fibre behind the image to soften the whole effect a little.

The papers are DCWV Linen closet.

Papers DCWV - Hobby Craft

Fizzy Moon

Good afternoon everyone hopefully you are all having a restful Sunday so far. I'm still totally disorganised I am afraid but hopefully normal service will resume soon!

I treated myself to a Fizzy moon stamp set recent and couldn't wait to us it. Enough waffle from me and onto the card

I used the sketch and stash sketch from this weeks challenge but have been so disorganised that I did not complete my card in time to enter the challenge!! Oh well that will teach me for not organising my time better.

I made this card for my mum who is in hospital at the moment. Your not allowed to take flowers onto the ward any more so thought Fizzy's big bunch of flowers would be a great alternative.

I have embellished using a Tim Holtz's trinket pin and some charms.

I really cant remember where the papers came from as they were scraps in my paper draw. I do hoe you like the card. stop by and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
