Nautical at MAWTT

Hi All!

I hope your week is going well.  The weather has been so miserable, will we ever see the sun again!!  

We have a brand new challenge at Moving Along With The Times today and our gorgeous Leesa is our hostess!  The theme is:


I did have a bit of ponder about what I would do for this challenge, I couldn't think of anything interesting!  Then I remembered I had the " Siren of Pearls" and Clam Shell images from Make it Crafty so I thought I would have a go colouring these up.  Here is my card:

I have been wanting to try and do pink hair for AGES!  So I thought she would be perfect to try on!  I think I need a bit more practice!  Its not as glossy looking as I would have hoped but I think its ok for a first shot!  I just used some of my Echo Park Splash papers with some ribbon from my stash. I added some pearls and the border punch is from EK Success.

We are sponsored this week by Sir Stampalot who have some fabulous stash in their store.  Please click below to go and check it out!

Pop over to the challenge blog to find out more details of the prize this week and also to see the rest of the gorgeous DT's work. 

OK, I'm off.  Have a great day!
