Under The Sea!!

So sorry my post is a day late...Mr Blogger decided not to post it for me!!! We went out for the day yesterday & what an amazing day we had....we drove all the way up to Bridlington & went to Bempton Cliffs. What an amazing place, we saw so many puffins so sweet just love them!!! We also saw a barn owl flying around looking for some munchies to feed his babies...just awesome fabulous day was had by me & Nige xxx

I'm here today to share with you my latest DT creation for Digital Delights. I decided to try making a tunnel card. I love the look of them, but have never made one before. So I combined that with my Fathers Day card for Nige off the boys...Charlie our greyhound & Nico my skunk!
To be totally honest with you, I am really impressed with myself at the finished card!!!!

Don't forget the theme as always is....

ANYTHING GOES!
