Cordelia the mermaid

Good evening all.

Yes, I am posting this late but it's been such a wonderful day that I have been out-doors mainly. My friend asked me this morning if I would look after her 2 little ones this afternoon (her daughter and Phoebe are best friends) as her husband wouldn't be back in time when she went to work. It's been real fun having 2 5 year old girls and a 1 1/2 year old boy playing in the garden in Phoebe's new princess paddling pool. Ice cream and biscuits on the menu together with orange squash :). Mind you I am tired now so will properly be in bed before Phoebe lol.
Unfortunately it looks like the lovely weather is not gonna last - well, this is Britian lol.



So made a lovely summer card last night but I do wish I was by the beach. I love the sea and really miss it living in-land, This lovely mermaid is called Cordelia and I just think she's gorgeous. I used blue tones to colour her and attempted to make a "beach". A starfish and fish button makes it more fun :).
