Treasure your friendship...

Hello, hello!

Is it too early in the season for a mermaid card? I debated on that for a minute but decided that since the new summer papers were already coming out, why couldn't I have a little under the sea fun? Plus when I saw that the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge this week was 'use your fave KK stamp' I really wanted to use a mermaid. Oh, but wait... I really love their Alice stamp too. Hmmm... what to do, what to do? Aha! Ok, so technically I may be cheating a bit but I pulled a head swap to include both Marina's body and Alice's head into one image. That way I could use two favorite images at once. ;)

Alrighty, I've gotta cut this one short so I can go get ready for the day. 
Have a happy one my friends!
