For you

Well, I made it home safely. It was bright sunshine and my car was parked in the sun and registering 29 degrees out at 9.30 this morning when I left Peterborough. By the time I got to the M62, my sunglasses were off and the windscreen wipers were on, hey ho.
I managed to make a couple of cards this afternoon, one a DT make that I'll share on Wedneday and this one that I made using the one of the Heartfelt Creations, Under the Sea stamp and die sets. I stamped the fish and coloured him in with my copics and die cut him. I used a left over bit of a pixie powder background which I die cut with the tattered lace pin dot circle and cut a matching mat of silver matt card. I also cut a tattered lace sentiment from the silver card.
I mounted it all on a black card base that the lovely Rahmat sent me. I added a few AB gems to represent bubbles (although the largest gems might have been hiding and distracting from a glue smudge). 
I'm going to take this card over to the Snippets Playground  as the silver card was from the bit box, as was the stamping card. I've not been over there for ages, so I hope Parsnip has been behaving himself!
