Good Sunday morning,

My card today is not much to my liking. I am not sure why I don't like it but I just don't. It has very bright papers and lots of sparkle and shine. So maybe that is why. I have used the mermaid stamp by The Pixie Cottage. She has the bigget most beautiful eyes!! The stamp can be pre-order at Michelle's Scrap booking and More. I have used the theme from Cute Card Thursday Challenge #73 At The Beach

Okay, I wasn't going to tell this story but I guess I will. Maybe some of you need a little laugh today.
The other day when I was doing photos of my Colour Create Challenge DT card.(below on blog) I took the photos out by my pond in the backyard and as I am taking the photos a whirl wind came out of no where and picked up my card and put it in the pond!!! At least I did get 2 photos before it happened so not a total lost. But the card is a wreak now.... :o( Well, today with this card I thought I would try the pond as my back drop again... I know, I know did I NOT learn my lesson the first time!! LOL.......So I go out to take the photos of this card for today by the pond. But I get more daring and put the card in the middle of the pond on a ledge and start to shooting away. All the while hubby is standing there shaking his head and saying it's going to go in the pond again!! And of course he asks me didn't you learn your lesson yet!!! uuhhhhhhhggggggggg!!! I just hate it when he says things like that to me. LOL...Well did the card go in the pond???? NO!!!!!!!!!!!! All is well.......but as soon as I finished up the wind started to blow. Just lucky today is all....

Well got to run for now..
Wishing you all a great day in whatever you do...

Well I love this card Janny. So summery, and the papers are yummy! Thanks for sharing your story it gave me & my OH a real laugh! I did something similar a few years ago. I had come downstars to show my OH a card I had made and as I was going back upstairs I tripped. Needless to say my card was all crumpled, as was my face! My OH said the look on my face was priceless! Lol! Have a great sunday!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Arrggh! Oh no...and your Colour Create DT card was SO beautiful, Janny! (Although, the piccie does look fantastic with the pond in the background!) I suppose this is 'suffering for your art'! LOL!

I adore this mermaid card - really stunning. I love those colours, esp the aqua/turquoise, and that fish charm is just the cutest!

Have a great day! Hugs, Sem x
