Shore do love you...

Hi guys!

I've got a quick little card to share with ya today featuring one of the new Sister Stamps mermaids that were introduced this month. This coy, or should I say koi (hahahahahaha), little beauty is Eliana and I think she is just super sweet. Because the papers I pulled to use with her were so cool and muted I decided to make Eliana more of a lake or river mermaid than a bright and tropical one. Instead of koi I would say she has a bit of trout in her. ;)

I couldn't find a sentiment stamp that I liked for this one so I went to the computer instead. Shocking, I know, but perhaps not so much if you could see the disaster zone that is my crafty room these days. Let's just say that working as much as I have been isn't conducive to keeping my space even semi organized. I would rather spend what time I do have in there creating than cleaning up after myself but it is hitting that breaking point where I'm going to have to deal with it or go crazy. I know that I will feel better once I take care of it and can find things again so you know what I'll be doing come Wednesday. :)

Later gators!

She's so cute, and I love the little fishy with her. I know what you mean about a messy craft room, I can barely move around in mine right now. More important things going on right now, that's why I haven't posted in so long. What can I say, life happens.
