A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.

I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

mermaid birthday card

This cute little Tilda mermaid is for my grand-daughter's best friend, Willow, who has lots of red hair.

I used Kay Miller download paper for the background and the sentiment inside, and Magnolia stamps for the mermaid and seahorse, which were coloured with copic markers.  The plain cardstock is Coredinations from The Range.  The little fish is a charm I've had in my stash for many years, so no idea where that came from!  There is also some Stickles glitter glue of course, for a little bit of bling.  Notice that there are no flowers on this one - I'm surprised I don't feel faint from the deprivation!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  I really appreciate your leaving comments, and I'll visit your blog in return.  I've had a bit of trouble with google comments when I've been out visiting, so I'm very sorry if you're one of those.   I promise I tried to leave comments but it wasn't playing nicely.
