Making a splash!

Hola amigas!

So when I checked out the new Quixotic challenge for this week I saw that it was to use water as a theme on your card. Now, right away a couple of images came to mind that I knew would be PERFECT for this challenge... the only problem? They aren't exactly released yet. What's a girl to do?
I thought about it for a bit and decided that a little teaser couldn't hurt anything. ;)
Did you know that Sweet November Land is nestled on the shores of a beautiful sea? Well of course it is... and in that sea live the Sweet November mermaids. They usually visit the shallower waters off shore only when the weather turns warm so it's still a couple months before they all show up but for now this slippery little sweetie has been spotted dancing in the waves. I'm not gonna tell you her name or even what little buddy may be joining her. Just know that the mermaids are coming and I hope you love them as much as I do! :)

I've also colored her hair black so that I could enter this card into the Copic Creations color challenge as well and I gotta say, I think the raven tresses suit her just fine. ;)

Ok, that's all the teasing you'll get from me today!

Oh Amy. I was so happy reading your blog this morning....That is until I got to the fact that this darling little sweetheart won't be available for awhile. I wish mermaids would get used to those colder waters. They would be out earlier in the year if they would...heeheee. She is sooooo cute! I was thinking to myself wow, I have money in my account I can so get her order today! :0) :0( Anyway, this is an adorable card my friend. I love how you colored her and the whole thing..She is so enjoying her time in the wonderful blue waters of Sweet November Land..Have a great day, Lisa
