Under the Sea

Hello Everyone......another day has dawned, and it is dark and a bit chilly.

I just let Harry out for his morning tinkle, and there was a scuffled and rustled of Autumn leaves, no barking...as he knows better early in the morning, so I took off around the side of the house, and he had cornered a little hedgehog....bit late in the season for those to be out, but the season is so whacky, I dont think he knew he should be sleeping, or he maybe unwell...but, Harry was standing over him, an the wee thing never moved a muscle....I called the dog back, in a quiet but firm voice, and he ignored me...then the hedgie twitched..now visualise a 2lb hedgehog..and an 90 lb dog...hedgie twitched, the dog yelped and ran like a girl..lol...looked so funny....he was straight back inside on his couch...

Made a card to share for a challenge at Moving along with the times  and the theme is Nautical..



Love mermaids and this wee girl is Arial, from 'Littlest Mermaid' freebie from the net...



Coloured with pencils and loaded up with glitter......the sparkly netting is off a bunch of flowers..
and no DP's...just used corrugated card and some turquoise scraps...



A Cheery lyn flourish leaf die, cut up.and beads and pearls put into sets of three...

So there you go....going to have a bit of a blogging session before work, starting later today, and early finish...then picking up the boys after school and then the ususal routine...

Welcome to my new follower, thank you so much for joining  me, and thanks everyone for all your fabulous comments you leave me...will see you tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Your image is delightful, your image and papers are stunning and your flourish looks brilliantly with seaweed. Your colouring with the image is awesome Chrissy.

Poor Harry, that was not a nice of that big bully of a hedgehog to scare him so... I hope that you were extra sweet to him the rest of the day as something that like that could be very shocking to Harry. lol... I am sorry to say that I just had to chuckle... I also have to say that I LOVE this card. She is so pretty and I love, love the papers and that beautiful netting you have used. This is just perfect and I love the feel of the underwater world you have created with Ariel..Give Harry a hug from me. :O) Hugs Lisa
