The cutest little goldfish...

Good morning!

It's been a beautiful weekend here and I'm happy to report that the snow is melting away. :)

Perhaps this little beauty helped to bring the sunshine my way... I like to think so anyway. I actually colored up this sweet Annabel the Mermaid stamp last weekend for a series of coloring videos that I did and I finally got around to putting her on a card. If you are interested in seeing how I colored her up, you can find the videos here, here, and here. Or over on the Color Me Copic blog as well.
Something about Annabel just made me think goldfish, I betting it's all of her ruffley fins... and I'm really happy with how she looks all decked in orange.

On a completely separate note, I've been enjoying cruising around Pinterest and would love to find some new pinboards to follow and new inspiration. So if any of you fellow pinners want to leave me a link to your boards I will totally have a blast checking them out!

Later gators!

Oh Amy she turned out just so pretty. I can't remember if I told you on your videos, but I just love the way you colored her hair. Really awesome idea and look to it. I love the little gold fish paper that you have used and of course the sentiment is just perfect. I am glad to hear that your snow is melting. It's so nice to see the bare ground again even if it is brown. :O) It just gives you the hope of Spring doesn't it? Have a great Sunday and thanks again for letting Oreo come over today. Hugs, Lisa
