'Hugs and Fishes' A challenge card...

Well... I've decided...
I'm on a one woman mission to get this blog active again!!!
Its definately been getting a bit 'stale' and only posting on a Saturday is just not good enough is it?

So, I've been playing around with the new blogger features, and 'freshened' the place up a bit...
and have made a few essential crafty purchases to lift my spirits... ;)
So all thats left to do is:
Bring on the challenges!!!

I'm head over heels in Lurve with these new Sweet November mermaids from CC designs 
This stunner is Coral Reefweaver...
Isn't she beautiful?!?

I've followed the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious

But I wanted to get the effect of her sitting with her tail in the water, so I didn't frame the image, hope thats okay?

I'm also entering this for A Spoonful of Sugars 'Enjoying the Sunshine' challenge

HUGE thanks for stopping by... Hopefully things will get a little bit more interesting in this neck of the woods from now on!!

I'll be back tomorrow!

Stunning card Paula, fabulous interpretation of Beth's sketch. Certainly alright for you to leave her out of a frame so her tail could hang in the water - mermaids should keep their tails wet at all times!!
She is beautiful and your colouring fantastic.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at Truly Scrumptious.
hugs Heather xx
