Our friendship...

Hello, hello!

I'm continuing the MerMay fun with this spunky siren from the CC Designs Merkini set. I absolutely adore her yet somehow I neglected getting her onto a card last summer. I wanted to make sure I got to her nice and early this time around so she wouldn't suffer another year before fulfilling her stampy destiny. I can never get enough of the Roberto's Rascals range of stamps and while I do love the little bikini girl that comes in this set as well, there is a big part of me still wishing for an entire RR mermaid set sometime in the future. Now as I was getting ready to stamp her up it seemed to me like she needed somebody or something to interact with so I looked through the stamp sets on my desk and came across this cute turtle and little fish in the Mermaid at Heart set from Three Room Studio. They had the same cartoonish look as this little mermaid so I went ahead and added them to the scene and just like that the story started to come to life! With all her new friends in place I was able to find just the right sentiment to finish this bright and happy little card. :)

See ya in 24!
