Mermaid-A Day for Daisies-Challenge #62@TSC

Hello, and thanks for visiting today!
I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.
Challenge #62 Anything goes with ribbon and lace.
Our sponsors are A Day For Daisies and SK Digis.
I've chosen this beautiful digi from A Day For Daisies. This image is called Mermaid.
Papers are from My Mind's eye.(2006-2008)
I used spica pen on the tail and fin and then covered it with stickles.
I pulled out my chalks and dusted them off so I could color up the clock die cut.
I've added silver mesh ribbon over the clock, and used this fun netted tassel lace.
The tiny dragonfly is a laser cut chipboard from Make It Crafty They are so intricate and wonderfully made.
I had made these ocean borders in my scrapbooking days and never used them until now. I cut a piece off of one,altered it a bit and added it to the bottom left side of the card. I remember being so thrilled that I had found those tiny, real sand dollars to use on them.
I found this wonderful acetate overlay in my stash along with the MME papers and thought it was perfect to add over top of the image I colored.
Yeah, that glare was really fun to photograph.
 I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this week's challenge.

I was able to celebrate Mother's Day this weekend with my children and grandchildren and it was such a wonderful time. Lots of memories were made again.
Saturday afternoon my daughter,Stevie and I took a mixed media class and made a Steampunk inspired canvas.
Mine didn't get finished...which is kind of  normal because I rarely get any of my projects finished in class. Just too much of a perfectionist.
So here's a picture of Stevie's canvas. I loved how it turned out and I'm so happy we were able to get together and create something fun.

 After the 4 hour class we rushed home to have a barbecue with the rest of the kids. We celebrated Tanner's 2nd birthday and just had a great time together.
Here's a picture of Hailey, and Morgan, two of my granddaughters playing dress up with some of the costumes I have in the tickle trunk.

 I can finally share some exciting news with you. I'm going to be a grandma again for the sixth time in about 7 months!! 
See you again soon.
