Sunshine Summer....

Hi Everyone,

WOW Sunshine Summers been and gone here!!! It was sunny this week Wednesday and Thursday but today has been pouring rain all day!!!! Boooo!!!!! I have to say the lovely wee sunflowers loved their sunny days and have grown lorts on them. Ive even got a couple of flower heads on them now too. 

I decided that I needed to cheer myself up so thought I would play with a wee Magnolia Stamp Ive not used for years!!!!  I spent last night colouring the Mermaid and then today Ive been doing the sea horse and the CD which I altered for the creation. 
 The above picture shows you the dimension I have on the CD. Also lots of bling and sparkle. 
The bottom piccy shows the sparkle on her tail and the wee seahorse. Love my Wink of Stella pen.
