Afternoon all. Today we have the thawing process after all the snow for the last 2 days...lovely to see everyone about. My card is using a Leanne Ellis stamp 'mermaid' and i do love using this one, comes with a swirly frame but i masked it off for a change, papers are all from old Kaboodle Doodles d/loads, squared off the image with my Promarker pink pen, stamped sentiment..'with love' from a mag free, 'friend' from Crafters Companion old girl set, heart, swirls are die cuts from Spellbinders, gems to finish, then i found some clear dew drops and had an idea i saw on Mina's blog resembling water drops so i used them too, hope it's not too much but there's only 3 there!!!



Hope you can see the paper piecing on her lovely tail..the end bit fell off but thankfully i was able to save it and attach it back on. Challenges entered are 10... Sugar Bowl 2nd entry 'sketch & paper piecing', Crafty catz 'pink & white', OSAAT 'love' as are Come and get it, and Lexis Creations, Polka Doodles 'hearts & love', Bling it on 2nd entry, Allsorts 2nd entry, MAWTT 'have a heart', Hooked on craft 'hearts'. Wishing you all a fab evening.

Another lovely card Ruby.

Thawing underway here as well, in fact it rained half the night so it's at the messy stage.

Thanks so much for joining in our Free and Easy February at Allsorts this week, good luck and hope to see you again.
