You're Fintastic...

Hi ya! 

Anyone else dreaming of sandy beaches and cool, clear waves? I sure am. It's getting hot again and we are due to hit temps over 108 by the weekend with no relief in sight. Luckily, there is a big blue lake calling my name and I'm planning on spending some serious time in the water to keep cool, all the while dreaming of being a mermaid.  ;)

And it looks like this lovely mermaid may be having some dreams of her own... though they are most likely filled with dancing across the sand rather than riding the waves. Mermaid Queen is the name of the SOG digital stamp gracing today's card and as you can see, I went to town with the blues and aquas. I am SO happy with how her hair turned out, it is one of the rare times when it looks just how I pictured it in my mind. There is also more of the Fintastic Friends set from Lawn Fawn, originally I was just going to use the sentiment but then I thought it would be funny if she was passing time building a little sand castle as well. 

Alrighty, thanks for stopping by. I've got a day off so hopefully I can spend the afternoon either at the lake or in a nice air conditioned crafty room.  :)
