Beach Mae


Morning all, it's a bit blustery here today and the sun is very intermittent...at least it's not raining...yet! We've had quite a busy week with Sophie appearing in a school production of the musical Oliver...it ran over three nights, was absolutely brilliant and a great interpretation of the original! Can't wait for the next one now!

This lil' card is for Sophie's best friend Olivia...she turned 12 on Thursday and the only brief that Sophie gave me, was that the card had to have anchor on it, as Liv loves anchors...I got there in the end after a bit of head scratching...Sophie pointed out to me yesterday that I could have used a mermaid image....doh...why didn't I think of that lol! Gotta love this cute Mae image though from Some Odd Girl

Colouring Medium: Promarkers
