First I've got to take a moment and tell you how excited I am to see your excitement yesterday for the upcoming mermaids!
I don't know if I've mentioned it before but I grew up and still live in a small town on a big, beautiful lake and our summer activities always revolve around spending time swimming and boating on it. I love the water... always have. And as a kid I would swim and swim pretending I was a mermaid, diving down and holding my breath for as long as I could, holding onto large rocks to stay down near the sandy bottom. I can also remember sitting at the bow of my uncle's boat as we sped across the water, looking down and convincing myself that that there were mermaids down there racing us.
Yes, yes... I admit it, I was one of those dreamy head-in-the-clouds little girls, living in her own little fantasy world. Some might say things haven't changed too terribly much over the years, LOL! ;)
Anyway, all that to say I have a special place in my heart for these upcoming mermaids so it makes my heart happy to hear all the positive feedback from you. :)
Ok, today I've got a quickie (if you don't count all the coloring). I was in the mood to color so I created a little scene using some of the stamps from the Spring Swiss Pixie set by masking different elements as I stamped. I also wiped away her wings so that she became just a cute little girl tending her flower garden. I pulled all my colors from the yummy new Fly a Kite papers by October Afternoon and besides the couple strips of it there are no embellishments on this card! Yep, I'm shocked too but I just didn't think it needed anything more. :)
Well, that's all I got... except to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little sis, Jacque and I hope you have a wonderful Friday! Supply list:
