We mermaid to be friends...


I'm such a fan of the stamps from Impronte d'Autore and you know I love me some mermaids so it's no surprise that I had to add their cute mermaids and sea critters to my stamp collection. For my card today I paired this joyous mermaid with a sea turtle and silly little bottom dwelling oysters and crab. I didn't have a lot of time to do an intricate background but they all have so much character and personality that I don't think the scene needed too much more. The sentiment was borrowed from a Pink and Main set because I love how it looks like the mermaid and turtle are swimming into each other's arms for a friendly hug. 

Ok, I've got another busy day ahead of me so I best get going. Have a good one!
