are you still hopping along - Day Three Under The Sea

Good morning everyone welcome to Day three of our Under The Sea hop...are you enjoying the sneak peeks?...I'm fed up with the sight of black bin bags and poor Phil is even more fed up with his many journeys to the skip, I'm trying to be ruthless and throw away anything I haven't used in a year but its so hard isn't it...I'm sure I met myself coming up the hall twice yesterday and if I don't stop running round in circles I'm going to disappear lol...anyway back to the hop you should have arrived here from the fabulous
PAT
but if you didn't and want a chance to win some prizes then hop on over to the wonderful Jane's blog to start at the beginning

...this is the stunningly beautiful (my personal favourite) AquaMarina...isn't she fabulous?...I coloured her with my usual Distress inks and glittered her outfit, I kept the design really simple this time using a Kraft card blank and some stunning Kars paper (sorry I don't know the name of it there's nothing written on it), I cut a circle for her to sit in...I finished with some white card punched with a lace punch, a scattering of fabulous clear gems and a ruffled bow...

I'm the last stop on the hop but don't forget to leave a comment on all the stops including the Sugar Nellie Blog...you don't have long to wait as the stamps go on sale at 10am on the 3rd August at Funkykits...I will be back as usual tomorrow morning at 7am and the next blog hop day is Friday...I'm sitting in today as its my Dads operation and my stomach is churning for him and I wont be able to settle until I hear from him, oh well its a good excuse to do yet more clearing and packing will it never end I ask myself lol, whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and enjoy the rest of the hop
Im entering my card for the Creative Card crew challenge, Fussy & Fancy Friday challenge and the Dynamic Duos challenge too
