Salty kisses...

Good morning! 

I don't have a lot of time this morning so I've gotta make this a quick post. In fact it has been a super busy weekend with not a lot of crafty time to be had, lucky for me I have plenty of TGF release day cards still waiting to go up here. One of those cards from the latest release is this one featuring a mix of the tiny Mermaid Kisses cuties each with her own personal pal from the Happy to See You set. I did use a mirror stamp to flip the little orange mermaid so she would sit nicely on the hermit crab, otherwise it is just some simple masking and stamping to get them all in place. The underwater cave scene was inspired by one of Sandy Allnock's cards over on Instagram and even though it was a bit of a challenge to figure what layers to put down first I couldn't be happier with the end results. Sandy's work always inspires me and challenges me to be braver and try new things, if you haven't checked her out yet you really should. 

Ok, I'm outta here... catch ya later!
