Escape while I can

 Hello again everyone

I have put together another sea scene - third attempt more successful than previous two that were housed in their new home, the recycle bin!!! I call it cardmakers heaven and they will never be lonely thats for sure

I have put together a Youtube tutorial recreating this card HERE

Anyhow to my latest card. I used a mermaid not used before and the reason she is being dusted off today is that shares the same name as my Grandaughter's name Alana and this will be for her 18th Birthday in June.  She makes me feel old and yet my youngest grandon will be four next week. The 6 inbetween 4 of them are 11 and the others are 15 and 13. Time flies huh. 

I have called this ''Escape while I can''

    1. Thank you Carol. They grow so fast don't know where the time goes xx

  2. WOW! I'm officially rendered speechless in awe of this incredible work of art you've created for your grand-daughter, in celebration of her 18th birthday (I cannot believe you're a grandmother; you're way tooooo young!). I hope she frames it; it's...well, I have no words! Gorgeous! Sensational! Impressive! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity in the Just Us Girls gallery!

  3. Your scene is breathtakingly beautiful, Elaine. I love every single detail and also love that your mermaid has the same name as your granddaughter. Thanks you for sharing your amazing art with us at Just Us Girls.

  4. WOW...THis is definitely a work of art (from your heart)! I am sure your granddaughter will love and appreciate it! A treasure for sure! Thanks so much for playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!


Thank you for your comments. I really do appreciate them and they make my love of crafting much more worthwhile.
