Long time, no sea...


Hello again!

Today is release day at Purple Onion Designs and there is a brand new artist being introduced with two coordinating collections! The artist is Shari Bresciani and her two quirky cute summer collections are Under the Sea and A Pirate's Life. Under the Sea includes everything you need to create adorable under water scenes full of fish and shells and of course a mermaid while A Pirate's Life includes a handful of pirates to choose from, some human and some critters, a raft, deserted island and all the appropriate pirate accoutrements. Sure you can use each collection separately but they really come alive when you start mixing and matching them together.    

And that's just what I did for my card today. The Under the Sea Mermaid is meeting up with her pirate pal Gabriel who seems to be a bit stranded on that little island. No worries though, I bet this isn't the first predicament she has helped him get out of, the ol' scallywag! ;)

Now for even more great news... Purple Onion Designs is also hosting a store wide Anniversary Sale! Over the next week almost everything is 25% OFF (with just a few exclusions). What a perfect time to grab some super cute rubber stamps that have been on your wish list, especially with the holidays coming up quicker than you can believe.

So what are you waiting for? Sail on over and grab some crafty booty! LOL
