Mandy the Mermaid



Hello Everyone...

Another great day...but with a lot of confusion...[guess who!!]...'My Lady' is now suffering from paranoia, the poor sole is so sure that someone is coming into the house at night time and hiding or taking her stuff...she has set up papers by the door, and if they have moved in the morning she knows they have been...can be quite funny, but oh! so sad too...I have not been able to reassure her until today....I took the house key and got another one cut with a bright blue cap on it, and sneaked it to her...you know, like a secret, that only she and I knew about, and told her it was for the new lock, which she now believes she has...and now no one can get in, no matter how hard they try...hopefully this will work for longer than a week..lol..or back to the drawing board...and my kids still say "Why you so tired"...well, they are lucky they are all grown up and off my hands, or maybe my hands would be on them..lol..

Anyway, enough of my day, hope you all had a good one and the weather was good...I managed to make a card for fun last night, and going to enter it into several challenges..



Little "Mandy the Mermaid"...now this is the horrible bit..I dont remmber where she came from..how awful is that...I'm getting slack again at writing things down..sorry..

But there she is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and copics...

A pretty glittery tail, and little Marianne Creatables Shells Die....and lace frame die

MS leaf punch.... papers are MME " Howdy Doody"...and the Anchor another Marianne Creatables, die cut in silver foil.



A close up of image...and it is decorated inside but forgot to take the photo...

These are the challenges I would like to enter...

Card Mania  [In the Sea or on  the beach]

Bearly Mine  [All that glitters]

Ooh -la -la  [Photo inspiration]

Simon Says Stamp    [Anything goes]

Thats it..all done, and thank you so much for stopping by...off to colour a pruple horse!!!!!!

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy, Loving her glittery tail, she is coloured beautifully and the detail is fab.
Aww poor old soul, how sad to end up like that and it could be any one of us. My daughter works on an elderly patients ward and they see some sad cases and some funny ones too.

Her glittery tail is just lovely, and the air bubbles too, with lovely framing layers. Do hope your clever tactics with the key will provide some reassurance for 'your lady' - must be very frightening for her, glad you're there to help.

So pretty, love the sparkle on her tail and waist and around her in the water. Cool way to use the MS punch, looks like sea weed, so neat. She is from Sassy Studio Designs, she's a retired image, you really rocked her!

Sorry to hear about "your lady", but you certainly came up with a very creative solution, hope it eases her a bit!

Hugs~Kathy
