Mermaids love candy too

Good morning my lovely stampers, please scroll down for my Tickled Pink preview!

Thanks so much for coming back to meet the final two mermaids swimming to the shores of Sweet November Land this year. It's been a long journey and they are both ready to relax and enjoy watching the antics of the various fairies and sprites that inhabit this place year round... watching the sprites try to swim can be quite entertaining! :)
So the first lovely I would like you to meet today is Current Ebbtide. For most of the year Current can be found swimming between the Sea of Japan and the Yellow Sea. She has a very zen and mystical demeanor and she exudes a sense of peace and calm that flows out to all of the sea creatures that are lucky enough to share the waters with her. One of those friends is Anela, the angelfish, and together these two enjoy tending their undersea zen garden of anemones.

The Current candy includes: one Sweet November Current Ebbtide and Anela rubber stamp, one 6x6 sheet of Reminisce gold paper, one sheet of 6x6 Making Memories paper and some Heidi Grace beyond the sea 6x6 sheets of paper, one Kraftin Kimmie bubbles stamp, Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, buttons, four card blanks, four envelopes and my card.

And finally there is Bubbles Lostlagoon. What can I say... she's just a bit scattered and gets easily distracted on her journey, LOL! Bubbles is a ditsy, giggly, sweetheart of a girl who makes her home in the Caribbean where she travels from island to island with her octopus friend, Palu. Bubbles is a good times girl who loves to laugh (which I suspect is why she and Palu are BFF... no one can tickle quite like an octopus can). ;)


The Bubbles candy includes: one Sweet November Bubbles Lostlagoon and Palu rubber stamp, one sheet of 6x6 Reminisce gold paper, one 6x6 sheet of Making Memories paper and some 6x6 sheets of Imaginisce splash dance paper, one Kraftin Kimmie bubbles stamp, Tsukineko shimmer spritz, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, buttons, four card blanks, four envelopes and my card.
Now all you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on this post. If you link to this candy on your own blog that is great and much appreciated but not a requirement... I want everyone to be able to play along. And when I say everyone, I mean everyone... I will ship the candy anywhere in the world so all you mermaid lovers out there are encouraged to play! :)The candies will stay open through this Sunday, July 4th and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, July 5th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of this month's new stamps over at ATS!
Don't miss out on the gorgeous card Traci has to share today featuring even more mermaid goodness... her cards are pure magic I tell ya! :)
Oh and if you are looking for even more chances to win these darlings before you can buy them then head on over to the ATS blog on Saturday and Sunday... hint, hint!

It's all the little buddies that make it for me - that octopus & the crab from yesterdays. I think it is Bubbles that I like most as the - her hair & the octopus are just so different. Thanks again for such a tremendous introduction & showcasing.
