Hello sunshine...

Hello my friends!

Can you believe that I started making this card a whole year ago?! Apparently it had been forgotten in a small stack of doilies until I recently unearthed it... oy! I actually remember coloring Mermaid Lucy in the hospital the first or second week that my mom got sick. She was for last June's release reviews but amidst all that was going on Lucy kinda got lost in the shuffle. The papers are all American Crafts Shoreline that also came out last summer and I even had them all cut out and glued in place. All I really had to do to finish the card yesterday was add the gems and the little seagull silhouettes that I just cut out by hand. 
I feel bad that it has taken this long for Mermaid Lucy to finally get her day in the sun but I suppose the old adage, better late than never, really does apply here. Perhaps I'll consider it a really late review preview, LOL!  :)

Alrighty, TGIF to everyone... hope your weekend is wonderful!

Amy, I love this card! I just love her hair and the way you colored her body. I do have to say however that I don't color this well at home let alone when my Mom is in the Hospital. You totally ROCK my friend and I think this card is just adorable. I love how she looks like she is resting on the greeting. Too cute! Hope you had a great weekend. I spent the most of mine at my desk, but I love it now and I am amazed at how much space I have on the desktop to you use. :O) Hugs
