 Isn't this the sweetest image?

We would love to have you enter our last challenge as Forever Friends!  Hoping to see you at the new Crafty Friends Weekly Challenge on June 1st!

My very best to you,
PS  Sort of a scarey night here with tornadoes all around us!  Another day and night of tornado watches to go.  Shawnee, OK was wiped out last night and they need lots of Bright Spots, if you would remember them.

I have to laugh at this card- I couldn't figure out how to make my image into a card for a child so as you see it says "Little Sister," well, my little sister is 56 years old!  SSSShhhhhhh!!!


  1. Such a beautiful underwater scene and the ribbon is just perfect for the theme.

  2. This is a beautiful stamp and I love how you colored it! I must try a mermaid card myself. it is about time... :)
    Have a nice day!

  3. Cute scene, Manderly. Love the bubbles and glitter and the "underwater" feel. The shell with the pearl is beautiful. You always add such special touches with your embellishments. The dies are gorgeous. It's another lovely Manderly creation! We are remembering Oklahoma in our thoughts and prayers. So sorry to hear of the devastation and loss. Stay safe. God be with you all. xx Kathy

  4. I don't know about you but I know my little brother is older than me~LOL Your sister will love this card! Your card is fantastic! So many wonderful details! Love the shells and the touches of glitter! Looks like the ribbon was made for your card! Words cannot express how sad I am for the people of Shawnee, OK. I hope you escaped the ravages of the weather!!!!


I appreciate that you take the time to tell me you like something I've created...or not like! You help keep me inspired. Every comment has a face and is precious to me. Thank you so very much!
