Mermaid to be friends...


I needed something quick to color yesterday as my day was quite busy and there wasn't a lot of time for coloring. I looked through all my mermaid stamps and everything was looking a bit too involved. It got me wishing that there were some pixie style mermaids from Tiddly Inks. Hmmmm... I have an old stamp set of Tiddly Inks pixies that was sold by Stamping Bella, it probably wouldn't be too hard to wipe away their bodies and draw in new little mermaid tails. OMGoodness, why have I not done this alteration sooner? They are SO stinkin' cute and now I'm totally hoping that Christy Croll will make a few mermaid pixies for the store someday soon. Fingers crossed!

Alrighty folks, have a wonderful weekend!  :)

Too cute! I did some doctoring to a changuito stamp and added a santa hat for a Christmas card. It was so fun and I felt like the queen of crafting haha!
