I simply enjoy you

Good morning!

Can I just say that I feel like these last couple weeks of July are going to be a whirlwind of activity and craziness so if my posts get a bit shorter please forgive me... it's temporary I promise! :)

Today's card features the Kraftin' Kimmie mermaid Calliope and her little octopus dance partner. I always have so much fun coloring up these Moonlight Whispers characters and of course the new mermaids had me at hello! If you haven't guessed by now I'm a big fan of the fin, LOL! Yep, as much as I loves me some fairy magic I think I want to be a mermaid when I grow up. ;)

So I kept the card pretty simple as the pattern paper is kinda busy. There is only a few pearl sprays and a lovely bit of ribbon to embellish but I think it works. And that ribbon makes it so this card can be entered into the Beautiful Bows challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie's... always excited when I can find time to play along!

Thanks so much for dropping by... oh! Just a little heads up for ya before I sign off... Sweet November sneak peek candies for the August release will be starting up at the end of this week and I hope to see you there for all the fun! :)
