Under The Sea!

This is my third post for today, please scroll down to see my MAWTT & Willow Sketchie creations! Hugs xx

This weeks challenge over at Delightful Challenges is 

RED, WHITE & BLUE!

I decided to think out of the box with this weeks creation! I just love these images & I thought they would look fab in a tunnel card. Well having never made one before I phoned Hazel (didos) up, because I remember her doing a tutorial on her blog! Well she talked me through the measurements, whilst I wrote it all down! Thanks hunnie your a star! Well I did have to change the measurements but I loved making it & I love my finished creation! So did our Katie, guess where it is? Yup its gone upstairs into her room! lol! Hope you do to!


Sorry this picture isn't so good but the weather is really cloudy & muggy here today!
