The smallest grain of sand...


In case you hadn't heard the news yet, the A Day For Daisies digital stamp shop has re-opened after being closed for a couple of years. As a long time fan of Tammy's art work I am thrilled to see her images making a come-back. To celebrate this good news I went through my stash of ADFD digis and found this sweet Ocean's Prince image to create a card with for MerMay. This darling little merbabe being visited by a wee seagull makes me all kinds of happy. I had a lot of fun embellishing the rock with starfish and barnacles and then creating a seaside village off in the distance as a focus for this little ones curiosity. The sentiment is part of the Mermaid Kisses set from Sugar Pea Designs and I thought it worked really well with this mini mermaid. 

Ok friends, I'll see ya tomorrow with more mermaid fun and a Live coloring video!
