Sketchy Under the Sea

The rain is still going!! OK it has been dry this morning - enough for me to go out and do some avon, for the first time this fortnight, without getting soaked to the bone! I even went and fed the ducks up at the pond. It seems the little girl with the poorly leg may actually be getting better. Either than or another little girl now also has a poorly leg! I didn't go out where I wanted to do a butterfly count, simply because I wasn't sure when it was going to start pouring, but I did do one out by the Duck pond - and I saw a Small Copper!

Anyway - to really celebrate the wonderful wet weather we are getting currently I have made an under-the-sea themed, Just for you card:

I used scalloped sqaures which I stamped a sentiment, or a shell image onto using BlueWhispers ink. I also added a blue wave to the shell squares with the ink pad. I inked the edges of the squares too. Finally I used a couple of sea creature dies, some diamante teardrops and a central sentiment panel.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Die-cuttin' Divas #327 Under the sea

 MMM #51 Monochromatic (Blues and Blue greens - although on a grey card base)

Here is my latest completed Cross Stitch piece:
He will become a Birthday card shortly!

My carrot crop that hadn't been eaten by slugs, out of the blue paddling pool:
