THE SUN SHINES ONCE AGAIN...


Hello Everyone...Ti's FRIDAY...

The sun is shinning once again, but better be quick, it will be gone in a minute..don't you just love Spring showers...

Have a cute card to share with you...and tried a new thing...making rings...and they will be appearing over the next few posts..once I learn something new I really do thrash it..

The cute little image is one I have used before from Raising our kids.com  love that site...



there she is, dipping her toe in the water,just like a girl...

All coloured up with Faber Castell "stubs"...they are getting a bit low..
Paper pieced her bathing suit with MME "A Mothers Love"...papers.



A close up..the sea foam made with liquid pearls..and Fiskars border Wave punch along the bottom...



And!!....the side view....little starfish MC dies and Sizzix castle, which cut well this time when you use the right plates!!!

The rings are my new thing to do...

Used a 1 3/8 punch, and punch out the circle..then used the 1/1/2 and carefully as I could lined up around the hole left from the previous punch...this gave me lovely thin circles..cool huh!!..and now I will inundate you with them till the novelty wears off...lol..

Going to enter this card at ....
