TGIF my friends!
I'm currently in the middle of a seven day stretch at work so there is plenty keeping me busy at the moment. That's also why there was no new card yesterday, I didn't find any time to get crafty and I've finally gotten to a place where I can tell myself it's ok if I don't have a post every day. That doesn't mean I plan on letting this place collect a bit of dust like last summer but if, on occasion, I just don't get time to create I'm not going to stress out about it like I used to. :)
So this is the card that I started on Wednesday and I finally got it all finished up yesterday. I had a ball coloring up Simona, who is one of the three new mermaids released by Sister Stamps this month. Can you say adorable? I seriously love each of these little mermaids but I think it was Simona's exuberance and look of pure joy that got her on a card first. As for the papers, I raided my scrap bags until I had a random mix that was bright and fun enough to match Simona's energy. Those Doodlebug fish were a must as soon as I found them, I think it looks like they are following their mermaid friend to an under the sea party. ;)
Alrighty then, I'm outta here... but before I go, my pal Tress is celebrating her 1 year blogiversary and she has three blog candies to give away this weekend. So be sure to congratulate her on the milestone and get your name in the hat for some fun stamping goodies!
