I want hair like this...

Good morning everyone how are you, you enjoying the wintry weather...how cold is it, I'm sitting here in my winter jimjams and fluffy dressing gown, fluffy socks and the heating on and its only the 1st September...hasn't the weather been strange this year, in fact I expect to see the snow fluttering at any second...well my wonderful Dad is off on his international jet setting again the lucky thing, we have noticed whenever hes going to fly he gets an upset stomach, I think its just flying nerves which is weird for how many hundreds of times he has flown...poor thing I hope hes ok flying today but at least one of my Sisters is with him and I got him some tablets to calm his poorly tum down...I'm going down to the farmhouse this weekend, well surely you knew I would when we got the carpet cleaner lol...cant resist, there's something really satisfying about getting something really dirty clean isn't there and that's coming from someone who would rather paint a room than clean it lol...right enough waffle Mina on with today's card, now I really like how this turned out (I know that's not like me lol), I think there's something about those colours together isn't there...beautiful...this gorgeous beauty is a Michelle Perkett Studio digi shes called Angelica Mermaid, I loved colouring her with distress inks and I paper pieced her hair ornaments in different papers from Kaisercrafts Secret Bird Society paper pad, the background papers, borders and sentiment are from the same pad, I added another of these stunning Flower Fantasy Wooden ornaments and finished with a few teeny tiny pearls in her hair, all my goodies today are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from Sketchy Colors challenge and I'm also entering this for the Make it Monday challenge and Creative Card Crew challenges too...I'm off to catch up with some DT work for while I'm away today...whatever your up to today I hope you keep warm

Mina this is so beautiful and the papers go perfectly with the image. Hope your Daddy has a wonderful time away and you enjoy your carpet cleaning at the farm house. Though Im sure you may have a wee card or two to post up before the weekend. I love coming on to your blog to see what you've uploaded next. Have a lovely day....I really hope it warms up! What an appalling summer we had. Bah....can I even say Northern Ireland had a summer?? Me thinks not! Lee xx

A really unusual image, beautifully coloured!
Do you suppose all mermaids have hair like this? If so, perhaps I should have been a mermaid!
