Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

I may not be around much again as it's my DIL 50th this month, and I am trying to make her an Album from scratch.

As it's the first of the month yet again there is new challenge over at


The theme this month is

Under The Sea chosen by the lovely Zoe.

You have till the 29th of the month to enter.

This is the card I made for my DT.


This will fit in and 8" envelope.
I decided to make a round card for a change.

The image is from the computer.

Ocean colour card stock from Tonic.

I added some raffia type of twine around the edges and tried to tie a 

knot you see in nautical things.

I added some Glossy Accents to the scene for water bubbles.


Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the other wonderful  creations made by my team friends. 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny, This is such a gorgeous card, it is like a 'peek' into the ocean through a porthole, and the knot finishes it off beautifully.

Albums from scratch do take time Jenny, but I know it will be so appreciated by your DIL. I can't wait to see it myself, so I hope you will share it with us too. Your under the sea card is stunning! I love that it is a round one, it looks like I'm looking through a port window of a sub! Beautiful scene for sure. Hugs, Brenda
