A sun-sational friend...

Hey there!

Today I've got a retired beauty from Sweet Pea Stamps called Shell Whisperer. The way she is sitting on that rock I knew she would be the perfect stamp to try out my new Beach Scene Builder dies with. I can't even tell you how much fun it was playing with those dies. It took me back to my paper piecing days before I took up stamping, which is well over 10 years ago now... yikes! Anywho, the die cut pieces came together so seamlessly that I had that background created in no time flat. An island home for this pretty little island mermaid. My sister actually suggested the color combo for her tail and I'm really glad that I tried my hand at this purple to gold look because the results are quite striking. :)

Alrighty, I've got a busy day ahead of me so I best get myself ready for it. TTFN!
