Good morning to you! Hasn't it gone a lot cooler here in the U.K.? I hope all our nice weather hasn't gone walkabout for another 20+ years!

Over at Crafty Sentiments we have a brand new challenge and the theme this week is Animals!  Here is my card:

I have used Crafty Sentiments Coral Reef Set 1 available here. The papers are Nitwits From The Sea Too.  I have used SB Grand Circles and Grand Scalloped Circles, Cheery Lynn Tiny Expandable Borders.  The Sentiment was done on my computer. Fish charm, twine and dew drops are all from my stash.

We have a fabulous prize for this week's lucky winner:

This gorgeous stamp will be given to the lucky winner! You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments stamp but if you do then add a 3 after your name on Mr Linky and your entry will count three times!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Sea Themed
Parade Your Crafts - Down By The Sea
Timbro Scrap Mania - Underwater World
Robyn's Fetish - Add a Charm

Aw this is so cute and a really unusual image - I just love that sentiment - I see we both have the British preoccupation with weather this morning - theres one thing for sure we've always got plenty of weather to talk about lol - hope the sun is shining down your way today hugs Judith xx

Hazel said...

Sorry I think I called you Carol that's because my husband was asking the name of the girl I spoken to at Flybe.

So if I did I am so sorry (my age showing again) Susan
