Cross an ocean...

TGIF everybody!

If I don't get some sunshine soon I think that I'm going to go a bit stir crazy. Too many grey days are wearing me down and zapping my energy and all my good intentions. After the vet appointment, laundry, dirty dishes and too much procrastination I didn't spend near as much time in my crafty room as I had hoped. Luckily as I was sitting at my desk, giving Oreo the belly rubs he loves so much, I noticed this little Sea Bean from the Greeting Farm Bean set that I had colored up way back in June. She never made it on a card because I couldn't find the paper that I wanted to use with her and then my crafting got side tracked. And while I still haven't found the paper I originally wanted to use I think it worked out for the best because in the meantime I had gotten this super cute paper from Bella Blvd... love it! It's amazing how quickly the card came together after that and I'm so glad Sea Bean has finally made it on a card. :)

Alrighty then, time to get ready for work. Enjoy your weekend!  :)

Love this little mermaid! You colored her so pretty! She isn't on TFG website. Was this from the "farmers market" section?
