Mermaid to be awesome...

Hi there! 

It's my day to post on the TGF blog and I figured one last mini mermaid card to wave goodbye to summer would be appropriate. I don't know about you but I've been noticing the days getting shorter and already the nights are just a bit cooler... fall is on its way. But before the season really takes a turn, this pretty little mermaid from the Little Mermaids set wants to let everyone know that they mermaid to be awesome. Which is totally my favorite sentiment from this set by the way. I paired her up with a cool whale stamp from Papertrey Ink stamped in a very light grey then colored him very lightly before rubbing the aqua ink right over top which I think really succeeded in throwing him into the distant background. Mer is probably on her way over to grab a flipper and hang on for the ride.  :)

Alrighty then, stay crafty my friends!
