Go with the flow...

Hello again!

This week we are again adding two new digis to the Sweet November Stamps store. These lovely curvy mermaids were inspired by a conversation with SN DT member Melissa Andrew a few weeks ago as we were comparing the 'extra cushioning' we've put on during this quarantine to the Freshman fifteen many of us experienced that first year of college. I like to think it means there is just more of me to love and the same goes for these new sweeties. ;)

Harbor Sunnyshore is right at home in the cooler waters of the southern hemisphere where she is often visited by her penguin pals, Jetty, Rocky and Hopper. And just like them she is rather awkward when she travels topside but she swims like quicksilver beneath the waves. 
Sometimes a mermaid just has to find a warm rock and take a break from all the hustle and bustle below the waves. And that is just what this Relaxing image is doing as she watches the flying fish put on a show. 

Now be sure to go check out the Friends of Sweet November Stamps group on Facebook for even more curvy mer release inspiration from Melissa, Tee and out fabulous guest designer... Marker Geek herself, Elaine Hughes!   
You can also find us on Instagram @sweetnovemberstamps and don't forget to use the #sweetnovemberstamps any time you share a card or project using SN images so we can see all of your beautiful makes!
