You're special...

Hello, hello again!

It's another beautiful June day and I've got yet another mermaid card to share. Today's card features Aurora from Sister Stamps, whom I just adore, as well as a friendly turtle pal also from Sister Stamps.  I am such a fan of these stamps and I'm secretly hoping they will design some fairies someday soon so I can add them to my collection of fantasy type stamps. :)
I paired Aurora and Mr. Turtle with some older scraps of Doodlebug papers I found in my stash, that stripe even dates back from 2001... yikes! It can't be a good thing when your crafty supplies start making you feel old, LOL! Anywho, I really like how they both look like they are going against the flow which ties back to the sentiment nicely. 

Now I know this month is all about our flippered friends but I do have a special little four legged guy to introduce you to. Meet Cosmo, he is the newest member of the Young household and even though I am starting to feel like a bit of a 'crazy cat lady' this handsome fellow has quickly found a place in my heart. And luckily he is getting along quite nicely with his big brothers. I'm not sure what I will do if he takes a liking to spending time in the crafty room too... three cats on my desk won't leave me a whole lot of space to get anything done, LOL! :)

Later gators!
